I have decided to step back from Blogging for a while, so thought it appropriate to offer you a musical blessing.
The reason for the Blogging decision falls into two main areas. The primary one is that I have numerous other interests all competing for my time, and a number of which have been badly neglected these past few years. The other reason is the ongoing frustrations of WP screwing around with their programs, and leaving me (the user) floundering about wondering what happened, and how do I now ….. (whatever).
This morning I went to display my earlier posts so I could finish one for today, and did not recognize the screen that popped up. Further, I saw no explanation, nor any help, to find what I was looking for. This has been an ongoing habit of WP, and now I am quite simply tired of spending time trying find my way around my own Blog. The Blog will be “open for business” from your perspective for a long time yet, as I want to copy many of my Posts into a separate file on my pc, so you are welcome to stay in touch if so desired.
This Blog was started in 2014 and the relationships created as a result have been wonderful. I will not mention names, just in case I overlook somebody, but I can honestly say that:
Without this Blog, I would not have met people from all around the world.
Without this Blog, I would have never met a Follower who was visiting Canada, and with whom I ultimately co-authored a book (“The Odessa Chronicles”).
Without this Blog, I would have never realized the interest that could be shown towards an ex-shelter dog, and would probably have never written “Who Said I was up for Adoption?”
Without this Blog, I would have never known (and later had dinner with) a Follower who decided to move here to live.
Without this Blog, I would never have put some of my poetry “out there” to see how it was received, and consequently would never have published “Just Thinking”.
Without this Blog, I would have never met a number of people who are generally in synch with my perspectives … or perhaps I am just in synch with theirs?
Anyway, it has been a lot of fun … and who knows what the future holds in store for any of us!
