addhumorandfaith. It did wonders to lift my spirits and to remind me of the importance of connection. People are, after all, "herd animals." I know that being connected is healthy for us.
I haven't posted in a while, but here I am: back and pondering on why I have been away from something I so love to do. Those of you who have read this blog for very long will see a recurrent theme in my life. When life gets hard--I mean really hard, because life always has challenges--I tend to go into a cave. I don't really want to see friends, chat on the phone, and posting just seems impossible. And life has crashed into me, once again, over the past couple of weeks. Eventually I'll tell you about some of it, but that's not the point of this post. And I don't want to always be whining...as easy as it would be for me!
Still, the blog is sitting there. And you--my friends--are out there. It nags me that I ignore you for these periods, and the nagging eventually brings me back. It's like I have a social responsibility to my friends out there. It is why I understand the need for some bloggers who "take a rest" to announce that rather than just disappearing. By making that announcement, there is acknowledgement of the relationship. A nod to us that we are there and watching. An acceptance that to some the "going away" might just matter, whether we actually "know" each other or not.
But dinner with Sandra last night only compounded my understanding that retreat from society is not the thing I should do. I am, once again, grateful to you all for this outlet, for your friendship in a new and exciting way that is unique to our times, and to Sandra for jolting me out of my stupor!
PS - Yeaaa! I got the "link" feature to work!!! (It's the little things...)
