Time Out

When I was a little girl running hard and playing hard

We had a universal  “shout out” signal.

We would scream,

“TIME OUT!!!!!!”.

It meant we needed to stop,

mostly to catch our breath.

Today I am calling for a TIME OUT again,

a retreat from blogging just for a while,

until I catch my breath.

Wait for me.

I shall return!

Leaving my blog is tantamount to leaving my children.

It’s a horrible feeling to completely lose touch.

Maybe a reliable babysitter could be called in

just to check on incoming blog posts from my favorite people.

Granted, I have not yet met my blog-children in person (except for one couple I thought might be axe murderers but who turned out to be utterly delightful kids).

But the rest are out there –  my other children drifting around in cyberspace.

They need me.

How on earth can I leave?

What fabulous stories and photos will I miss?

Who will tell them their posts are wonderful if not for me?

Will they forget me?

I hope “gone is not forgotten”

As I fly the skies for parts unknown.

California here I come 

looking for a place to roam.

Please wait my friends – my children!

I will be back with stories of my own.

Award-WonderfulTeam Member ReadershipCongratulations to Dorothy of Musings of a Horse Mom – from Dorothy (Dor) of Virginia Views – for receiving the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award and for passing it along to me too!

If you love horses, be sure to check out Musings of a Horse Mom for this is a charming and informative blog . You will share in the bond between a young woman and her special friend Bear. And you will instantly recognize her writing as coming from the heart. Dorothy’s love for Bear is returned in so many ways and there is an undercurrent of emotion running through every post.

I have learned over time that there is a lot more to blogging than blogging. By itself, the exercise is rewarding – that is, if you are a true loner. Otherwise, when you begin to reach out to the blog-us-fear, you are bound to become part of a team of players. And suddenly you find yourself not only blogging, but reading, liking, and commenting, and finally, becoming part of a team who are all enjoying constructive interaction to help you to achieve your goals. That is what makes blogging so rewarding!

And that is why I am delighted to have received this nomination from Dorothy and even happier to pass it forward. There are some rules of course:

The Nominee shall display the logo on his/her blog.
The Nominee shall nominate 14 readers they appreciate over a period of 7 days, all at once or little by little.
The Nominee shall name his/her Wonderful Team Member Readership Award nominees on a post or on posts during 7 days.
