There are times when you need to step back and just settle, allowing yourself to absorb and sort all of the events out there and the thoughts in here that have been swirling around and demanding your attention and keeping you from seeing and hearing the really important stuff. To paraphrase a quote I posted a while back, it’s important to balance all the doing with some time for just being.
Although I know how important it is, and I try to allow for and make time to just be, lately there’s been a lot more doing than being in my life, and I need to try to find that balance again. Although I’ve loved doing this blog, I’ve been so intent on trying to post each day that, somewhere along the way, I’ve lost one of the main reasons for starting it: writing. I realized that I haven’t actually done very much of my own writing lately—although I have a bunch of posts in my drafts folder that I started and never finished—and I want to get back to it.
So it’s time for me to step back and just be for a bit and figure out what will work best for me. Which means I probably won’t be posting for…well, I don’t know how long exactly. It could be a few days or a few weeks, but I’ll be back. I’ve enjoyed the process—and have loved “meeting” those of you who’ve been kind enough to take the time to read what I post and make comments.
In the meantime, I invite you to go back and read some of my older posts. I’m grateful to have found poems and essays and quotes by some pretty great writers and thinkers to share with you these last nine months, so there’s a lot to read. Please feel free to continue to comment on posts. I might not be quite as quick to respond, but I will respond.
See you soon…ubuntu.
