I have been visibly absent in blog land. It started with longer stretches in between posts. Then longer. And longer.

And then.


I seem to have lost my focus along the way.

I forgot why I started doing this in the first place.

It all began with a significant anniversary and a guest post at the lovely and talented Jessica's at Oh, The Joys. And the responses filled me up.

I started blogging to let out the pent up emotions of the past and to try my hand at writing. And I found empathy and friendship and even bloggy hook-ups.

And it felt terrific.

And then the pack came back and I stopped. I did all of the things that just plunge me deeper into the abyss. 

Isolating, no exercising, not writing.

The recipe for depression for me.

Because I was doing nothing I felt that I had nothing to write about.

So today I start again.

I am going to yoga, walking and running. I am going in to my studio again.

And I am here. 

It may start slowly but start I must.

A slow start is still a start. Good luck!
