It’s an odd spot I find myself in. This middle land of bloggy days.

This creative world of half-begun.

These are the things that I know:

  • I know I love the freedom of this blog: it doesn’t feel right to be stuck in a box.
  • I know my new blog is ‘a box.’ A lovely box, that I hope to be very proud of one day, but it is a box. I need more than a box.
  • I know I love this place. It’s home to my love of books. Music. Friends. It is my heart and soul. My unbridled creativity.
  • I know I’m not ready to give up on my Little Blog of Everything, yet.

So I’ve decided I won’t.

I thought it would make sense for me to let it go, and in some ways it does but in other ways it doesn’t. This grey world. However do we make it through. πŸ™‚

This blog allows all my creative seasons to be, and to be shared.

I love that. I love sharing my talents and passions: for much too much of my life, my creativity was held captive, losing life behind the bars of solitude. I fear that by leaving this place, I will be placing that creativity back in the hands of a sloppy, unappreciative owner. I don’t want to do that.

I want to always let it fly.

So I’ll stay until I know in my heart of hearts that it’s time to say goodbye.

That’s what Mary Poppins said to the children.

I’ll stay.

Until the wind changes (which might be never.)

(And Empath Days will carry on as planned. xx) in a new tab)

Ha ha ha! Isn’t that so funny! We’re not the only ones. It’s a story I’ve heard before. πŸ™‚ Oh my goodness, there are too many things I love doing! ha ha ha. I love painting and will likely start again soon, and there’s music, which I also love. Nature: I am home there, and can see myself diving into that a little deeper. πŸ™‚

I suppose the blog is a nice place to call home (like earth), while all my other loves are like the planets revolving around it. They’re all born of the same thing, yet not all in focus at the same time. πŸ™‚

One thing I’ve learned is that there are 2 kinds of boxes when it comes to blogging. One is to find that specific niche where you only talk about one thing. The other is talking about everything you love because there’s always a thread that ties them together. It’s the blogs that fall into the second that I always love most, like yours, because it’s like reading a person, the good and the bad and everything in between. I love that you’ve found a way to focus part of your energy, and love that you’re still keeping this place alive because there’s so much of your heart here and, as a reader, I’ve been avoiding saying goodbye to this space. I can’t imagine how difficult it was to have to face that, so I’m glad you’ll still be sharing your heart here, too!
