As some of you may have noticed, recently, I have been finding it nearly impossible to write. For some reason, every time I sit down to relay my thoughts via the keyboard my mind freezes and I end up blankly staring at the computer screen. I have been having some amazing experiences down here so it’s not for lack of material. My time in the lab has become less intense so it is not for lack of time. Am I finally cracking under the pressure of composing something funny for the masses?
I have heard it said that most great writers turn to their muse for inspiration when the words just absolutely refuse to flow. Now I am not insinuating that I am a great writer but am nonetheless confused by my sudden inability to compose. So what is it I ask myself…what is it that is missing? What has changed in my simple little life down here that has transformed me in a matter of weeks from a blabbering idiot with verbal diarrhea into a wallflower with nothing at all to say?
Oh my god…I’ve got it…I know what’s wrong……diarrhea is my muse....!
The reason I can no longer write is due to the return of normal bowel function! So what the hell should I do? I don’t want perpetual diarrhea anymore, but then again, I don’t want to be a wallflower with nothing to say either! Okay, let’s think this through with rational thought…I need to write. I have a responsibility to relay my jungle experiences. The answer is clear to me….I will simply ingest a few Ex-Lax when it comes time to compose. Nothing wrong with that right? Wrestlers do it all the time when it’s time to perform and not to mention I could use a little chocolate coating for the sweet tooth. So it’s settled, I have decided what I must do. I’m off to the Swiss Family Robinson Room to raid Mel’s first aid kit. Should only take a few hours before I know if the creative juices are starting to flow!

Thank you to all of those who showed me a little love and commented...I feel fulfilled now and am getting ready to take on a new adventure that hopefully will reap some blog worthy stories....I have just signed on for a last minute adventure that will take me to the Pacific Coast for a weekend of boating, snorkeling, and whale watching off of the Osa Peninsula!!! Yes, that means more vitamin D for me! AND, my stomach feels AMAZING and regular so keep those fingers crossed for an Immodium free adventure! Although, I may need some dramamine for the sea sickness...!Ciao for now and Pura Vida!

Okay listen here people, and listen closely....I will not be posting another blog until I receive some feedback in the form of 'comments.' Life in the jungle can be lonely and I NEED some love from you! Remember, no comments...no blog. The choice is yours.
