Life...

Life has been presenting me some challenges/opportunities (are they the same thing?) that have gotten in the way of my writing regular blog articles the past few days.  I can't say that they've even consumed all the time I could have written, but, well, it's just not been possible for this person to get an article out every day the past few days.

I hope/plan to get back to writing regularly in a few days.

Since I was sick before, I just wanted to let  those that care know that is not what this is about - I'm healthy enough but am thoroughly distracted right now.

It's probably no accident that this patch of my life has come up close to my anniversary of starting this blog (last March).  As I remember, the thought I had at the time is that I would try this for a year and, if it (the blog and the efforts to create it) were useful, I would continue.

My inclination is that blogging will remain a part of my life for the foreseeable future (for me, foreseeable might be today or tomorrow but I generally make commitments in annual increments, at least).  As to the form or if I will have the luxury of continuing blogging at least 3-5 times a week, that is all up in the air for now.

Anyway, I miss it (a lot!) when I can't write up anything and I miss it even more when I can't comment on the articles of those of you whom I have come to care much about.  I plan to explain more about what my thoughts are when they are more fully developed in  a few days/weeks/months.

As to the details of the challenges - it's all just bound up in the drama of the disease and my life.  I'm sure there will be material for several articles when we get around to it in a few days.

Until then, I wish us all God's best.

Maybe I know how you are feeling and/or thinking? We do what we must do, and carry on. Seems like you "carry on" quite well.

You have become the first post I read (or look for) daily. Thank you, for your much appreciated work.

Tiny Tim and I agree with you: "God bless us....everyone..." and he added "even mean old chemistry professors".

Balance, balance balance, between living life and my other commitments I have to constantly remind myself that I'm an addict. As such, even after all these years, I have only been given the grace to do the balance act one day at a time.

You're on my hit parade of posts.

Challenges & Opportunities is the slang phrase at my place of employment, I cringe hearing those words as I now associate them with 'corporatespeak'.

I am glad you are part of our blogging community - no matter what that ends up looking like.

I too am glad that you are here. I learn much from what you write. Some days there is just more to say than others.

It just does not seem like a whole year!
You have done an excellent job with this committment.

I certainly appreciate your blog presence in my life. Your perspective is insightful and full of experience beyond my own. I wish you well working out what that might look like in the future.

I enjoy stopping by, so for selfish reasons I am glad you enjoy posting...

I do hope that things settle down a bit and peace finds you again.
