Recalibration

So blogland is a funny place…

a fascinating place

a liberating place.

…and blogland friends are

special.

The friends I have made
my virtual friends
have been special.

It's liberating to have friends
where we can share…

We can share anything…
everything.

I feel like I have gotten closer 
in a shorter amount of time
than I typically would.

But that also means 
that when my virtual friends disappear
or go dark,

the loss is so much more profound.

It's rough and so makes such an impact.  

Now, I've been a fairly absentee blogger
as of late.

Life has gotten in the way…

thank God not in the way of sex…
just in the way of reporting it.

So….

I also need to recalibrate…
To remember that this is for me…
that this is fun…

and to not take things too seriously.
Not get too involved
not put too much on it
and to not get too invested

  2. Breaks are natural. Its kind of hard to keep feeding the beast when the beast that is blogland changes. Sometimes we take a step back and reassess how we want to interact with this part of ourselves. Other times, we just think we already said it all. And then one day, out of the blue, we find we have more to say again. But for how long...

    I often wonder how many times people will be willing to say welcome back, but I love blogging. I no longer NEED blogging, so I come when I can (ha!) and miss it when I cannot.

    1. I'm thrilled you're blogging again! I agree…there is a natural rhythm to things…though I find the ebb and flow of friendship harder.

  3. I could have written this post myself, especially the last part. It's supposed to be fun, it's supposed to be for me. I've recently been thinking almost that exact same thing and that maybe it would be nice to do something fun for me again. Sigh, I just need to make the time and jump back in...again. :)

    1. You and I seem to be strangely on the same frequency so many times faerie. I hope to see you back again soon, but I'm glad you're here.

  4. When I am struggling, the blog is the first thing to go. Which is weird because it is probably the first place I should go. To think, to vent, to find support, etc. I think we all need some recalibration sometimes...

    1. So true Brooke! So true. Sometimes it's hard to do what we know we should. Recalibration is sometimes very necessary!
