And so I’m back from outer space…

This has been a strange sort of year, and as the months drip by and we pass through the time between each season I always feel a little ‘out of sorts’. I’m sure I’ve written about this kind of thing sometime before. And so with all this strangeness going on, it seems that I’ve once again been missing in action from here more than I ever intended to be. Thanks to all those who have continued to drop by and leave a comment or two…my apologies for not always getting back to you.

Writing is such a funny thing to do…and not funny in a comedic way, more funny in a why do we do this sort of thing to ourselves kind of way. You know how it is.

So much time spent in crafting the perfect arrangement of words, then wishing them all the best on their journey before we release them to the world…and then the cycle begins again.

At times it can be difficult to find the patience for this careful crafting and hard to maintain focus and motivation for long periods of time…but therein lies the challenge.

So anyway, what I am really trying to say in far too many words, it that I hope to be back for a while, but you never can tell when the winds will change again.

    Tracey, thanks for reading my poem an d for your kind words.

    I relate so well to this post, and also to your ‘about’ page. I became a school teacher because I thought it would give me the afternoons free for writing. Well, that never happened! I wrote in my little journals, but never shared my work, until the last year or so.

    Hope to read more of your stories and see more photos.

    Hi Christine – It’s always a pleasure to meet a like-minded reader and writer. I think as long as we keep writing in some form or another, that is the most important thing to maintain…either that or somehow miraculously extend the number of hours in the day. Thanks for your visit.

    Hey there Paul – Thanks so much for your kind words of encouragement. It’s really nice to be back in the land of the blog living again (and really nice to stop by your blog once again). It is always a pleasure to have you stop by (and be astounded at your perfect memory).
