Still here

I'm still here.
I haven't stopped blogging. It's just been a long, long . . . pause.

Too much time alone with my own head, undistracted by natural color and sound. Inside my head is not a happy place to be alone. Best way to feel better is to help someone else, but I haven't summoned the energy to reach out. 

Last weekend, more or less on the spur of the moment, and fighting last minute urges to stay in my safe (if morose) nest, I went to visit my friend who lives on the other end of the state. We did nothing special, except the kind of special that comes from being with someone who appreciates you but requires nothing more of you than that you be you
Renewal.

Still nothing inspiring springing forth from my fingertips . . . nothing blogworthy.
But I thought I'd just let you all know that I'm still here.
Husband, Molly and Peep, too.

Glad to hear from you. I look forward to more once the muses hit. :-)

Good to know you are still blogging. Sometimes life and the creative juices just don't mix. Hope to hear from you again soon.

You've been missed. Glad to hear you're okay and just hibernating, as befits the season. xoxo

VioletSky said...

Good to see you again. I keep hoping that once the weather improves, I will feel like getting out of my head, and my bed, too.

I am glad you gave us a wave here. There was a retired teacher in the nursing home when my mom was there. She would get agitated sometimes and wonder around with a stressed look repeating, "Don't worry. June is coming." It is such a teacher thing, but it became my mantra when things seem bleak.

You've reminded us how important a friend can be. Is there any more important message than that?

It was like hearing from a long lost friend - just knowing you are ok and holding your own June. T'is all that matters.
I hope spring arrives quickly and puts some colour back into your world.
Hugs
Rose

I have three old friends. We get out our calendars and set out next date at the end of the current visit.
Give Peep an extra squeeze, too.

Oh I can understand how hard it can be to get out after being inside for too long. It's like it takes some sort of herculean effort the first time. It will come though. Meanwhile, it is good to hear from you. (I didn't post for a year.)

I for one and glad that you are,....still here that is. Take care of you...

Pauline said...

I know that space inside our heads, finding the key to getting out of it can be tough sometimes. Glad you got to spend time with your friend, where would we be with them? Take care.

Barb said...

So good to hear from you. I've been on a couple extended breaks, too. Hope you'll be back to blogging soon - I miss you.

Spring will be here soonish, maybe it will make the difference. Your not alone! ( that's not meant to sound sinister, more like u belong to a sisterhood. Xxx

So happy you're around, though quiet. That happens. I'm always so happy to read your posts whenever you write one! I took a break myself to write a book on a really tight deadline -- and since completing it on time, I've been so pooped, I am reading blogs again, but not writing so much yet. So you're certainly not alone!

Glad I stopped by - blogging gets harder in many ways as time goes by. It's difficult to know what to share and what to keep silent about.

Phew, that's all right then.

Spring is on its way!

It doesn't seem to make any difference what I do to my Amaryllis bulbs , when I pot them up or bring them out into the sittingroom . They'll only flower when the days get appreciably longer .
We're the same , I think .

My mind is a dangerous neighborhood also. Especially during dark and rain. That's why I'm in Tucson for the winter.

Glad to have your news! Thank you.

Hilary said...

Thanks for checking in, June. We do worry when our people disappear for a while. Hopefully, spring is just around the corner (boing, boing!)

Please won't you pop in again. It's summer and the sunshine is begging me to hear if you are still out there? I miss you. Are you okay?

Barb said...

I've been thinking about you - isn't that strange? Are you still walking out the lane? I'm out and on the trails whenever possible. It's been a cool, glorious summer with lots of wildflowers. I hope you, Hubby, Peeps, and Molly are all well. Take care of yourself.
