Still alive and kicking, but….

Probably a month ago I got nominated for a blog award (thanks, and I am working on my end of it), and then, like the shoemaker’s elves, I abruptly disappeared.

However, there were extenuating circumstances: went out of town to a place with no cell coverage, or internet; then did interpreting for the deaf for a homeschool convention; got a nasty virus for over a week; end of the year testing for homeschool to then be submitted to the school district but got the wrong test and had to re-order and am dependent on the USPS :-(; finally found a moment to get my garden in (late, as usual, more about that later); preparing for the Monroe County Fair as both volunteers and participants… (do you hear the tiny voice wailing “help me!”?).

In the meantime my bloggers brain swirls with ideas, paragraphs, snippets all crying “Write me!” and I’m just a tad overwhelmed. Blah! All I’ll have time for, for about a week I guess, will be short bits, then I pray I will have a moment to breathe and write a bit more. (Well, I did think my life was becoming a bit out of balance by blogging too much and neglecting other responsibilities, and I did ask God for help, but this is not quite how I envisioned the answer.)

Guiding principles for all bloggers….

Better to write for yourself and have no public than to write for the public and have no self.

– Cyril Connoly (1903 – 1974)

 

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.

– William Shakespeare (1564 – 1616), Hamlet,’ Act I, Scene iii
