Please Bear with Me…

…while I take one of my periodic blogging breaks to re-think, re-strategize and refresh my ideas for The Blue Kimono.

Since starting my blog over a year ago, the creative process it’s fostered me has nudged me into new places.  I’ve resigned from my “day job” raising money for an environmental non profit organization, and I’ve started a business creating clothing from recycled fabrics. 

I can easily see the progression of these changes back to the beginning of my blog.

I could not have done any of this important mid-life growth without the support of my blogging friends, and I’m so very grateful to all of you.

The original purpose for the blog isn’t really relevant any more and I’m now considering whether to change the focus to more closely match what I’m doing with my “work.”

Thanks, all you dear readers.  More to follow.

Good luck to you, Sallymandy and I wish you both enjoyment and satisfaction in your pursuit of a new path. For one, I'll be happy to see you whenever you get back, and I hope you will. I feel like I've made a real connection with you over some of the things you had to say, both here and on my blog.

Grace Albaugh said...

I know exactly what you are feeling. I have been absent from my own blogs for quite sometime because of a lot of changes in many areas of my life right now. I hope to get re-focused and back in the blog sphere soon. All the best to you. Just go with your heart and redirect in whatever way feel genuine to you.

Please take the focus your creativity and energy suggest is right! Many people do not realize how much time and thought this takes. I'm following you wherever!

Jennifer said...

I understand your feelings. I have loved following along with you, and look forward to whatever direction you choose. You are talented and creative. Congratulations on your change of "job."

Tracy Watier said...

That's why I love blogging. The way it makes me think about possibilities, focus and refocus. I feel all the time like I'm taking some sort of self-directed course. "What Does Tracy Like and Why?—Write About It". Speaks to my inner-nerd who loves school and study and research. Good luck with your process. I'll be on the look-out for whatever comes next.

Darla said...

Your work is worthy of its own blog, or your blog is worthy of your work... or... I'll be back to see what you decide.
