When Absence Means Presence

Posted On: 05.05.16

I have been absent from this blog and I love this blog, so that’s something. But the glorious thing is that I have been present other places, most notably with these three beautiful girls who are growing like weeds, and becoming their own people. More moments with them has meant fewer moments here.

Also, I’m happily immersed in a new writing project which has me up (without an alarm!) every weekday morning at the cruel and utterly brilliant time of 4:30am. There are only so many hours in each day and I’m spending these hours a bit differently than I have in the past, but I’ve decided that this is not only okay, but good. 

We must allow ourselves, and our lives, to evolve.

But that doesn’t mean I don’t miss this place, and all of you. I do! And I trust that I will be back here, in fits and starts, with stories I simply must tell.

Hope all of you are well and having a happy May.

Oh, and...

  1. Good to hear from you! I’m glad that you are enjoying the time that you are spending with away from here! I believe that it is important to see what is bringing you the most joy and chase it for as long as you can.

  2. We must allow ourselves, and our lives, to evolve.

    Amen and so very true.

    I love your blog and have followed for years. When you have historically announced that you’ll be stepping away, pressing pause, I have applauded your decision. As the years have rolled by, I have noticed more and more absences as well as longer and longer pauses between spurts of posts. I know you have three growing girls, responsibilities in life, but I do miss your words. I find myself thinking I should delete your blog from my “daily read” list, but can’t actually pull the trigger (so to speak). I do wish you could find a way back to this place. And while I hate to pose difficult questions (and understand this may not be my place), I am wondering, given the more frequent absences, is it possibly time for you to stop blogging?
