Days without Blogging

I have been living them these past few days.

And I have liked it.

Actually I have loved it.

The weekend went by without even a glance to my closed laptop.

The wind of the weekend picked me up and carried me into my three-dimensional life and kept me there swirling around supported and loved by the most important people in my life.

This white space world feels so transitory most of the time. People opening up shop while many others are closing down. The time suck and the distraction of it proving to be too much for many. And I get it.

I really get it.

I have struggled with the realization that when I close the computer, most of the people that live there disappear. There are only a rare few that have stepped over the boundary of the computer and stepped into my life becoming a real person to me. And even with that rare few, I am realistic and know that it takes time and energy to build a lasting relationship. At least for me. That's how it is for me.

I have written before about numbers and stats and followers and what's the point really. To what end? has been my mantra....

But then when I write for me and for the history of my family, I have my answer.

That is my end.

This blogging journey can be a real mind riddle.


  1. Yes. A mind riddle indeed. I have had more time away lately too and I love it. But I always come back because it's such a good additive in so many ways to my already good life. I mean, YOU are here and to me, that's a really good thing, icing on the cake :)

  2. Hi Lee!

    Here you are writing about not blogging and I have just decided that I missed you too much and needed to begin again...

    Life sure throws curve balls.

  3. I hear you. It's important to set rules for myself or I go bananas, I'm an all or nothing kinda gal.
    I think blogging for yourself is the best kind of blogging. It's honest.
    I'm glad you're writing down your thoughts and sorting it all out. You have to have a plan with blogging, and then you get confused two days later. There's so much to it isn't there? It's something you want to discuss with people, but you have to blog to get it. You're on the right track (in my humble opinion)

  4. Rubbing my eyes to stay awake, barely reading, barely commenting...

    but for you???


  5. I so very much understand and get this post. It's so hard... this thing that at times is so much to us, and then at others it isn't. And it's the beauty of it, but it's also what makes me a little sad about it as well at times. You know?

  6. so, so glad to have been able to cross the boundary. I was just thinking we were due for another chat.

    And funny, commenting after Corinne. Although I've never met her, I *did* just recieve a little package of extra-dark chocolate in the mail from her last week. :)

    I am so with you on this all, and I am so grateful for the penpals who have become friends.

  7. So true! I am having a hard time finding a good balance!

  8. You always find a way to put into words that which I am thinking.

    this is why you should keep doing this.

  9. You're right - it's basically a public journal and thankfully we get to ride on your journey with you.

  10. "The wind of the weekend picked me up and carried me into my three-dimensional life and kept me there swirling around supported and loved by the most important people in my life."

    LOVE that!

    You know I so hear you. And get you.

    And that's why I love blogging.

  11. I was just thinking about blogging as I was falling asleep the other night. I've had to remind myself lately that I blog for fun and for the friendships I have been able to make and because those are my reasons it is okay it I post or comment a little infrequently sometimes. Blogging is a mind riddle.

  12. "But then when I write for me and for the history of my family, I have my answer."

    Yes, ma'am. I keep having to stumble back to this truth. Great post.

  13. You nailed this one.

    But I am for real...even when you shut down that computer. :)

  14. I am with you on this! I can't get over the time this computer sucks from my day. I think I'm on here just minutes and it's actually hours. The days I don't log on are my most productive and leave me feeling my best at the end of the day. I need to do that more! But I enjoy checking in and get inspiration from all the wonderful people whose writings I read. There just has to be a balance...
