State of the Blog: Back from Sabbatical


[Image:freshfocus.info/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/sabbatical-web.jpg]

Every once in a while it just makes sense to disconnect from everything. I tend to do it when I'm feeling overwhelmed. Or when I'm contemplating significant life changes and need the time and space to think and focus. And, sometimes, it's a little bit of both.

All I can say is that I'm no longer overwhelmed and that I found the time and space to think things through. It's good to be back.

Welcome back, Jack. I also took a brief holiday from my life. It was different.

It doesn't seem like you're back from a sabbatical at all, seeing as this post was a week ago and nothing has been posted since.

i just found this blog and it is so inspiring.
It makes me so happy that folks still follow dreams.

@Browneyedgirl,

Thanks Nancy. It's nice to be back.

@AW,

And thanks for the welcome back.

@The Traveler,

Not saying anything!

@Kate,
Imagine how good I feel waking up myself.

@Catherine,

Here I am!

@Propoquerian,

Sorry I didn't get to your comment until then. Unless I am wrong, I think you were referring to the March 6th post about making room for love. Well, if that's the case, just look at my own last post for a response :)

@Chrows,

Different how? I hope it was a positive.

@Anonymous,

Sorry but just because I am “back” doesn't mean that I have to blog in the first place. But hey, expect some more coming up. :)

@”on solo seas...”

Thanks. Dig some of the photos on your own blog.
