Gone Fishin



I had planned to do the 30 days of submission questions over the next month. It seemed like good timing for me to do it as this is always a time of introspection and re-evaluation for me. I hoped it would give me some clarity and a direction in which to proceed. It also would have taken me to the first anniversary of my little home here in this lovely community.

After doing the first two questions however, a few things occurred to me. The first being, my heart just isn't in it. The rest, I'm not ready to share and I don't know that I ever will be. I have much to think about and much to consider.

I've decided to take a bit of a break while I figure things out. I have no definite plans to either continue or discontinue writing, that's one of the things I will be deciding.  I just need to take some time away for awhile.

I'd like to finish by saying a huge THANK YOU to all my followers, all my commenters and even the lurkers. The support, advice, energy and encouragement I have received here has been priceless. I can truly say there where times when that was all that got me through the rough spots. I can't say it enough, thank you, thank you, thank you. Be well my friends.

  3. Faerie,
    I almost think that that's what I'm doing, without making if official. I don't want to lose contact with you whether here or by email - though I've been slack about emailing anyone these days. I know many people who have stepped away for a while only to find that simply doing that caused their minds to be flooded with things they wanted to blog about. I hope this happens to do. Just know that you will always be welcomed here and we'll always be anxious to hear from you.

    Hugs,
    PK

  12. Take care, and no worries. I thought about answering them too, but I think that is too personal for me. I am not sure I would be honest in all my answers.

  13. Take your time. I don't want to lose contact with you either, but writing does sometimes becomes a drain instead of a release. Recharge and take care of yourself.

  19. Nothing like a little fishin' trip to help one gather their thoughts. Even if nothing comes to mind, you still just might catch dinner...

    All the best!
