a blogging break



I started this blog not long after I graduated college--when blogging was still very much its own wild-west--a sort of uncharted territory where everything and anything was possible. It's changed so much over the last five years. And I've changed so very much too.


I have been so lucky to have this space. So lucky to have such wonderful readers. So lucky to have so many people cheering me on and wishing me well and invested in how just how this thing will end. And holy shit, how will this thing end, you know?!


Life is good now. And there is a huge impulse to write--but to write something that is more of-a-piece, if you know what I mean. On my good days I've got maybe two hours worth of words in me and because of my limited time and resources I'm going to step away from blogging. But just for a bit.


Three months, maybe? Three months is my goal.


A little break. To write and regroup and experience life without the impetus to share so much and so often.


So let's meet back here middle of May.


When I say I'm grateful for my readers, I'm not blowing smoke. I really am. In more ways than I'll ever be able to say. So I hope you forgive me this absence. And hope that you'll continue reading when I do return.


Until then, I leave you with 40 posts from days gone by (in no particular order)... just to tickle your fancy.
