It's been three months since I posted a thing.


The longer I'm away from this place, the harder it is to get up the courage to come back. I keep thinking I need to explain, or justify, or wait until I have something amazing to say - not just any old thing - but something amazing. Strategized for weeks about how to explain. Procrastinated a thousand times. Distracted at least a million.

This morning I just decided to break the ice. Confess. Begin again.

I want to write. I want to share. Therefore, I'm trying again.

Wondering if anyone will return. Realizing I squandered my momentum. Regretting that I lost the interaction with friends I love so much.


Not overcome.

Health reports, family updates and spiritual insights to follow. I missed you, Mr. Blog. Coming home again.

Glad you are back Jan-we need your story. I missed you at the Merge when you were sick. Is everything okay? You have covered a lot of territory in a short time. Rest my friend unashamed! hugs

The best writing, in my opinion, is honest writing. It gives the rest of us 'permission' to be human too.
Your blog is engaging and amazing! It's amazing simply because it is honest, and that isn't always easy to find.
I am developing a new passion for 'gut level honest' and a passion for people. The two together are a beautiful thing. No wonder God calls us His treasured possession and gets such a kick out of very single one of us!

Missed you! Stop with the embarrasement. I, for one, am glad you had some "living" to do! B
