Back in The Swing

hi·a·tusnoun, plural -tus·es, -tus. 
a break or interruption in the continuity of a work, series, action, etc.

The above definition best applies to my absence from the blogasphere and online presence in general. If you’ve been following me for awhile, you’ll be familiar with my trials and tribulations of which I’ve no need or desire to recount. Suffice it to say “ my cup runneth over…” , with what, I’ll leave to your very capable imaginations.

 As most of you have figured out by now, partly voluntary and partly by circumstance, I have been on hi·a·tus.
 Regardless, it has been most welcome and needed in the end. Funny how sometimes we cannot see the answer, which is right in front of us. That which is most obviously needed seems somehow inconceivable. One way or another life has a way of making you notice and forcing you to react.  It has been a time of reflection as well as inventory. Time to accept my limitations as well as my potentials. Knowing one will define the other and vice a versa.
Time to be thankful for all the goodness and blessings in one’s life. Thankful for kind words, well wishes or encouragement sent my way. Those are things that feed one’s soul and give one strength in the best or worst of times.
Time to plan, to foster thoughts and Ideas, new and old. Someone once said:
“be careful of your thoughts for thoughts turn into words. Words turn into action, action turns into character and character turns into destiny”

I’m not sure if I’ve quoted it correctly, but I believe you get the jist. Having said that, and with all intentions, here’s to endless creativity, boundless energy, healthy stamina, and painless living. I will be pushing new boundaries, redefining old ones, and picking up where I left off.
Some of that time was spent on freshening up spaces, for instance the blog banner above. 

Some, drawing or jotting down ideas like these.
I hope you’ll join me once again on this new journey. I don’t know where it may lead, but I guarantee it will be fun.

That's what's great with journeys, you just don't know where you're exactly heading, but it's sure an adventure while on the road.

I've been on this earth 60 years and have traveled through hell and back, and heaven and back and it's been one heck of a ride and am looking forward to just stay the course, whatever that is, and's just too short and mine is officially shortening!! LOL

One of my favorite quotes is from the play/movie, "Auntie Mame," and it goes somewhat like this: "Life is a smorgasbord and most poor suckers are starving to death, so live, live, live!"

Peace out.
