|Hiking off into the fog - New Zealand|
The move and getting settled in was physically tougher than I anticipated but Jake and I are relatively settled in. A "now what" feeling pervades, however, will start some volunteer training soon. I've had some medical curve balls and am having difficulty picking myself up one more time. But eventually I will.
For varied reasons, it's become clear to me that blogging is no longer the best use of my limited energy. I have other things to attend to and have to choose. Additionally, I find myself censoring more and more what I share. This results in posts which are reduced to newsy updates with little depth of exploration that I used to feel. Writing a post used to help me work through my deeper thoughts and feelings but now I edit so much that it's no longer the case.
I really have treasured the sharing and friendships I've made the last few years blogging. It's been amazing. I've exchanged emails with some of you and have gotten to know you better. Please feel free to drop a line -- my email is in my Blogger profile which will remain although I will take the blog offline again in a couple of weeks.
Thank you so much to all who listened and shared in both the spirit of introspection and ranting depending on what was called for at the time. Be well on your journey.
