I’m typing from my dining table, watching the golden moon rise over the hills to the east…
My son is asleep in my studio, where I usually write. His father is renovating his bedroom as I type.
I have dragged myself away from Pinterest, where I was hiding, as this is not a comfortable post to write.

As I work through this process of releasing and embracing, and deciding which to do where, I have come to the uncomfortable realisation that one thing that needs to change is this blog.
It is uncomfortable because I have found myself a comfy rut with wonderful readers, so I am reluctant to change.
But in truth that comfy rut is getting uncomfortable, as I can feel words within me pushing to be written. I don’t know yet exactly what form they want to take, but I do know I want to find out…
Blogging helps ease my discomfort temporarily: having written something I can feel a pleasant glow of achievement and ignore those stirrings a little longer. But in truth my blogging has become a form of procrastination itself!
So, I have decided to release this blog a little. Do not fear – this is only a temporary release!
I need some time and space to breathe in without the strict rhythm of regular posting.
I crave time and space to explore my writing further, and to push the boundaries of what my blogging is.
I anticipate I will be away for at least a month, possibly longer. I fully intend to embrace blogging again well before the next Solstice (aka Christmas), but it may not be quite the same as before…
I ask your patience with this process, and hope that you will enjoy the end result as much as I intend to.
I will still be around on Twitter and Facebook, if you fancy a chat.
While you wait for me:
<3 you can find visual inspiration here,
<3 you can be encouraged in your quest for a simpler life here,
<3 you can explore words about creativity here, and
<3 you can find things to ponder here.

I will see you again soon, my friends. Thank you for your reading :)
