It has been raining forever.
Seems like summer will never begin.
Time is passing and July will be here before we know it.
Lot's of time to ponder the wet garden from the porch and list all the things that need doing.
Which leads to one conclusion that has been nibbling at the back of the old brain.
I need to step back from the blog.
From both writing and visiting.
Just for a bit. It is too much of a distraction...from life...from creativity...from deciding what comes next and making that a reality.
I adore browsing all of your fabulous blogs, the sharing of ideas and thoughts, tutorials and just plain connection with like minds. Sometimes it feels that as good as all of this is, true self can be lost.
The need to find one's own way, an authentic style.
Many times we share the same sense of what is loved, true sisters and brothers in spirit.
I just need to try to find exactly what it is I really want without being influenced by the delicious visuals and tempting ideas of someone else.
Do you understand where this is coming from?
The need to find "me" again.
Time to actually live my life, not vicariously through others.
Taking care of business here, in this place, in my own way.
As you know it really is all about ME!
That said, I need time to take care of this...
and also grow this...
and find more of this...
oh and let's not forget girl time...
I love Blogland and have made friends near and far. Some connections have literally changed my life.
I will not abandon this wonderful and inspiring place.
I just need to reconnect with the real world.
Make some things happen.
Spend time with family.
And definitely more girl time!!!
"This above all:
To thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man."
Yours in the quest for true self, P.
