I notice how penitent I feel as I come back to my blog after being gone for a little more than a year. I want to apologize to someone. I feel like the dog who missed the newspapers and is looking at her human with sad eyes.
My reasons for my absence are valid. I’ve experienced drastic changes in my family, which required much of my focus. The center of my life, my mother, passed way last Thanksgiving. Since then I’ve been working with my family on the process of selling the home where all six of us kids grew up.
However, the most valid reason I’ve been gone is I fell out of practice.
I won’t dillydally about it. Let’s rip off the bandage in one strong pull. I am back and I am going to come here more often.
Like a butterfly emerging from its chrysalis, I stretch my wings.
Oh, look! A whole field of wild flowers!
