I want to say I miss you all, but most of "you all" who I miss don't blog any more. I am sad about that. There are those who remain and I appreciate you, I really do, but as you know, you are few. There are those who are new and there are some of you who I truly appreciate. I have written to some of you in my absence.
I miss writing. I love writing. Some "real" writer, who I know I should cite - but I can't remember who said it, said, "how will I know what I think if I don't write?" I have felt somewhat lost these seven or eight days without writing. Many times over these days I have thought "I will blog about that!" "I will put a picture of that on my blog!" just like the way you think of things you would like to tell your recently deceased friend. It felt like a death in many ways.
I have a four day weekend starting tomorrow. I am grateful for it, including the furlough day. Yes, I am tired enough to be grateful for a day off without pay. I have not a whole lot planned. I spent the afternoon today with a sober friend who fixed my sprinkler system (and then I wrote him a big check - yikes!) Then I had dinner with my dear sponsee who I love so much. Tomorrow I will go to a meeting, then to church, then for a four mile run... then who knows? I might write a more cheerful blog post.
I am not real sure I have a whole lot to offer right now, but with your indulgence, I think I would like to write again... and I would be very grateful for your readership... and your comments. Really. You have no idea how much your kind comments mean. I had no idea how many "anonymous" readers were reading my blog - I wish you would say hello every now and then.
Thank you, and love,
