Balancing



This is a reflection of my life at the moment.

A fine balancing act, a support.

I am happy, it is no longer a struggle.

Can I strike that balance here in this space, which I have missed so much, with the rest of life?

Time will tell........

          So here hath been dawning
          Another blue day:
          Think, wilt thou let it
          Slip useless away?

From To-day by Thomas Carlyle

The days are dawning blue with magnificent skies, the sunshine that we have craved all summer has now arrived.

They are full, simple and contented.

What about yours?

  2. Welcome back.
    Balancing blogging with the rest of my life is something I struggle with too. It is so time consuming. But it would leave such a big hole if it wasn't there.
    Make the most of the sunshine while it lasts!

    1. It did leave a hole but it has taken me some time to work out how to fit it back in again!

  5. Welcome back my dear... It is really hard to find that equilibrium. I used to feel guilty when I spent days away from my space, but I've come to ask myself one very important question : Who do I blog for? And at the end, I blog for me... to keep a record of my time with my children. Sharing with others and creating such wonderful conections is just a happy bonus. So when you have time, we will be there. When your time is needed elsewhere, we all understand. :-)

    1. I think there will be quite a bit of stepping into the quiet, I don't think I will be posting quite as often as I used to.
