I know it's been a while, and it's going to be even longer.
In case you haven't noticed, I've taken a break from blogging. This blog has been sitting abandoned for quite a while. It will never be active again. Blogging became a chore for me, rather than a pleasure. I think of a blog post a least a few times a week, but they rarely turn into actual text. If I do write them down, they don't get posted. I've created another blog, but I'm not ready to commit and make it public. When I do, I'll let you know. I am still reading, but it will be a while before I write again. Once it is something I want to do again, I'll be back.
Thank you all for your advice and thoughts. I treasured them.
