Emerging From Underneath Of The Rock

Hello, all. If anyone still pops in over this way after almost a month of silence.
I hope that your holiday(s) were well for you all and that 2008 brings you much peace and happiness.

I've missed you all while I was away.
I often found my thoughts drifting to you.
Wondering what new topics were lighting the fires inside of your minds.
What new personal perils or triumphs you were sharing.

My intention with the "shutting down" of this little blog was to spend time reading all of you more.
However, I needed to cut myself off completely.
I peeked in from time to time, but I had to step away.
I found that the amount of pressure I put upon myself to write quality posts, to read, and respond eloquently was more than my feeble mind could handle.
Not to mention I was in the middle of a breakthrough of sorts.
Couple that with the impending holiday, classes winding down, a part-time job that I take way too seriously, and a family to be here for.
Despite being a Libra, I was having immense trouble juggling it all.

All of that being said, I feel that it is time to come back.
To mingle with you all, to be a part again.
My mind feels clear and my heart wide open.

I'm probably not picking a great day to return as it is the eve of yet another holiday, but that's just how I roll.

So again, have a wonderful New Year. Be safe, be well, go easy.
I can't wait to see what all of you have been up to!

That's the wonder of Google Reader. Each time you come back, I know about it. :)

Hi there! I've not been too present these last few months either! And Chani is right, Google Reader is a big help.

I look forward to reading more in the New Year!

TABBA! Welcome back! I've been checking in periodically, waiting to see if you were back. So glad you are! I'm glad you took that time for yourself. You must have needed it badly. I'm looking forward to getting caught up with you.

And what is this Google Reader thing I'm hearing about...?

Happy New Year!

I'm glad you're back!

I can relate to the difficulty juggling. (I'm a Gemini. Shouldn't that mean I have 4 hands? So why am I dropping the ball so much?)

Oh, The Joys said...

Welcome back!

Becc said...

Oh my!

Welcome back!

I think we all reflect your feelings of a busy time. I too drifted for a bit.

I am so glad you have returned!

Happy New Year!
