This is just to say . . .

1. Sorry I haven’t been around much lately.

2. I don’t expect it will get much better any time soon.

I could offer the list of usual suspects: holidays, planning for/about to go on vacations, general craziness of life. However, it’s a little more than that. In the past few weeks, I’ve been undergoing a great philosophical journey (shown in picture below.)
I’ve still many miles of pondering to go, so I’m not quite ready to share my thoughts, but I will when they are clear in my mind. In the meantime, I have been and will be taking a small break from the blogging world. I’ll still be around, but not as much. Not for a few weeks, anyway.

Oh, and as a closing note, I just want to assure you that I am quite content. Don’t read any despondency in this post. On the contrary. After what feels like two years of rushing, it’s very refreshing to stop and just think.

    And now I’m contemplating, wondering what you’re contemplating. Just glad you’re happy and relaxed. 🙂

    Welcome to my ship of NO/RARE BLOGGING. It’s a great place to rejuvenate. 🙂

    You know where I am if you need me.

    NO/RARE WRITING is a good ship, too.

    You’re climbing the side of a snow covered mountain to reach an iceberg of sorts? Wow, I’m impressed. 🙂 I know what you mean about slowing down. I’m so there. It’s a very peaceful place to be.

    Thanks gals. 🙂 I’m enjoying the break so far. Though it seems I can never get a break from my ponderings. Ah well, that’s life I guess.
