One More Day


Tomorrow will be my last post, last use of Twitter, and last Facebook update until Monday, July 20.

July is normally a wonderful month for me. Each year, I am away from work for two weeks of vacation and then two weeks of study in preparation for the fall. So during the first two weeks of vacation, I won’t be posting on this blog, Twitter, or Facebook (not sure that is a word). Later, I will talk about the vacation and study time. I will also post about what is in store. In the meantime, I will post a “Be Back July 20th” sign on this blog.

I have to admit, I always get a little nervous about disappearing from this blog for two weeks.

  • Maybe some regular readers will be slow about coming back. (Surely not. 🙂
  • Maybe I will miss the chance to connect with new readers of this blog.
  • Maybe some occasional readers will check in a few times and then not really think about checking again on July 20.

Nevertheless, I have found it helpful to take a break from this blog and to regroup each year.

During these two weeks away, I will be thinking about what I plan to post next, etc. I plan many of these posts over a period of weeks. Sometimes, I scrap the plan and go with what is on my heart and mind at the moment.

I am always open to your suggestions and input regarding this blog. Quite often, posts on this blog are triggered by your comments.   

If you read this blog and have never left a comment, I want to encourage you to do so. You have something to offer. After all, you are uniquely you! You have a way of seeing life and thinking about life that is worth expressing and hearing. Some of the most interesting comments I have read on this blog came from ordinary people who are simply expressing themselves. So again, if you read this blog regularly and have never commented, please let me encourage you to do so.

Please note: I reserve the right to delete comments that are offensive or off-topic.
