Quiet Time

To my followers,

My blog is going to be silent for a while, maybe as long as a month.

Please don’t worry and please don’t think I’m disinterested in you, dear friends.

You are the folks who make me want to maintain a blog, after all.

There are personal issues I must take care of, and they need lots of time.

Stop thinking the worst – not a divorce, severe illness, or criminal acts. I haven’t joined the army, a nunnery, or the circus.

Also, not the excitement of a round the world vacation or an excursion on SpaceX – they begged, but I had to turn them down.

And sadly, not (yet) launching the publication of my book.

In other words, something I can’t discuss here.

I will not be able to regularly follow your blog posts either, though I’ll pop in once in a while.

I’ll return soon as I can, to writing my blog, to following yours.

Till then, be healthy, stay active, and be involved with the things that make you breathe deeply and exhale joyfully. (Yeah, I know, not supposed to use adverbs. Meh.)

Love to all,

  5. I was truly worried about the circus gig. It would count down on your writing time.

    God bless you and yours. Wish you all the best. Rest, relax. I will be here waiting.

  6. It’s good you let us know because I’d think the worst (though I know where you live). I’ve had several blogging friends disappear… forever… It’s not an experience I want to repeat.

    • The Disappearing Blogger Syndrome – they don’t know how many of us are left behind with the big questions – and the worries.
      Thank you for your support, Jacqui, and since you do know, you might understand what’s going on.

  8. Sorry you’re going through a tough patch. May you get through it with as much grace as possible.

    Shame, though, about the army, circus, nunnery, etc. Could have been great story material. 🙂

  11. Sending you much love and wishing you all the best! While being secretly happy that you’re NOT joining the circus, only because my extreme jealousy would put a strain on our friendship. 😉💕
