I'm not quite ready to jump back into blogging. I'm rather enjoying the freedom of being away from the internet and the heavy focus on writing and discussing literature. Don't get me wrong, I miss it, but I also love this time away. I've gotten over my anger. It has turned into a general sense of disappointment in people. I will never understand the need to put someone down instead of lifting them up. That is a lesson I stress to my students, so I am always saddened to see adults who don't know better.
I just wanted to write and say thank you, for being caring enough to understand why I needed to step back for a little bit. I have been writing about my own literary journey for going on 3 years now and sometimes I don't remember who I was before books became an even larger focus in my life. And a small part of me likes the freedom of being away-of not feeling obligated to post something. But, I won't stay away forever. I'll be back in another week or so, with lots to say, I'm sure. :)
We all just need a break every once in awhile, some time to mull things over, and to make decisions. I've been doing all of that, and I think that when I do start posting again, I will feel happy and re-energized about my project and my goals for the future.
Until then, take care.
And happy reading.
