It was only a few months ago that I started writing this blog. I can’t tell you how exciting it was for me to finally have a consistent place to record my thoughts and hopefully share them with you. In fact, the past year or so have been a precious gift of time — time for reconnecting, time for rediscovering old passions, time for investing in those pursuits that I have found give me the most joy.
But, I’ve been away for some weeks; my little creative garden has lain fallow. The why isn’t important — things to do, a new job, etc. I let fresh demands push away what I truly love, and I have found myself feeling disconnected, although it took me some time to discern what was amiss in my world. The other day, I ran into an old friend who mentioned he had read my blog and enjoyed it. “Really?” I responded, feeling that little thrill that comes from someone’s acknowledgement.
So, today, I’m getting back into my garden, thankful that it is still here and waiting. I’ll pull a few weeds, and at least stop by to say “hello”. I’ve missed you, and I’m back. Already, I feel better. How is your garden?
