Just one weekend
Was all it took
It gave me time to be.
Not to think ... to just be.
Minimal phone interaction
No Facebook or Instagram
Some sorting through things
Numerous doggy walks
Sitting staring into space with an open, empty mind.
Calming and soothing and a realisation followed.
I hadn't picked up my camera at all, I hadn't once thought ... 'oh I must get a photo of this for the blog' or 'this would make for a good post'. I had the weekend for me and me alone ...and it carried on forward.
I dared to take more time away than I said I would and the emails and messages started.
'Are you okay?'
'Why haven't you blogged?'
'You said you would be back after the weekend!'
Yes, it can be called concern, and to those of you that did out of a sense of concern I thank you for that. For the couple that said 'you have let us down', I say no I did not!! (Oh, and I also said 'Oh fuck off ...' when I read your message ... but that's just me. 😎 )
I warned you I was going and I went, that I dared to take longer than the weekend is tough, but I will not apologise for not supplying something that is not vital to your survival. I am not and never have been a day in day out blogger, I have dipped in and dipped out at my will and being pressured to supply entertainment is the one sure thing to make me rebel.
But hey, that is not why I have come to a decision.
Now I am dipping out.
For longer than a weekend.
I may be back in the near or far future, when and if I have something I wish to share. After all there is a move imminent, a house sold and a home bought, so much to do and much to be done. A life to change and a new adventure to begin, that may or may not work out.
But for now I will live my life without a camera in my hand without a thought of what will or won't make a good blog post. It's not that I have run out of things to say it's that I just don't want to say them to anyone but myself for a while.
Take care, stay safe and perhaps I'll see you again on here once again.
Oh, I meant to add the blog will remain on here for those of you who use it as a bouncing off point to get to others that you read, or in case you wish to read through old posts again. But after a couple of days I will be switching off comments ... just to annoy the autobots and trolls 😉
