March Madness

March is traditionally the time of the mad March hare.

 

So in the spirit of temporary madness, I am choosing today to take a break from this blog. 

It’s been quite a journey, within the blog and my life. 

I began it as an indie author, following the death of my mother.

And it’s been wonderful to meet so many people and visit their creative sites.

So many folk with so much energy, humour and wisdom.

But I am currently not able to give this community or my blog the attention needed.

I hope all the inspirational quotes have lightened your days and given you a pause, as they did for me.

It was a joy to choose and repeat them.

I hope to use my spiritual path to help others one day in more interactive ways.

Perhaps all these threads will weave into a pattern that makes sense.

So on this first day of March I go into dormant mode, but not a single one of you will be forgotten by me. You have all taught me so much.

Have a beautiful March, and stay warm, if you are in this Northern freezing hemisphere.

Now where were we with the March hare… my very first pet was a hare – and how I loved that hare. All of us who are scatty feel a kinship with hares – but why do they behave in such an extraordinary way? Why do we?! It might take longer to work out some of our behaviours, but the beautiful hares, of course,  are running wild for love! 

‘The Lepus europaeus  portrays signs of unpredictable behaviour in its breeding season which begins in March. Hares in our fields are seen to be boxing,  jumping vertically for seemingly no reason and generally displaying abnormal behaviour.’

(source: Wikipedia)

So this March I hope you all find the child within you, in spite of your life challenges and burdens, and smile with the hare.

A blog for November

This is Billy. Actually he was Millie Marmalade until the vet informed us Billie may be better!

I have finally managed to create myself a writing space, and Billie can no longer sit on my hands as I type.

Unless I let him in. He has a very loud miaow – his mother was half Bengal, apparently :)

But today Billie is the other side of the door, and I am trying to absorb myself in my new novel, in my new writing space, in my new garden, in my new snatch of time since beginning my new work.

So today I think of all of you who are struggling to make the space for your writing, and I leave us with an inspirational quote:

‘Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.’ – William Churchill

Maintaining a blog is a commitment. Do you agree?

And yet there are thousands and thousands of bloggers tapping away each day, and night.

The huge and rich variety of their output is truly amazing.

Imagine what could be achieved if everyone could meet at the same time, and amalgamate their thoughts – truly a book of all time would be born!

Informative, amusing, inspiring, encouraging, instructive, loving, supportive, disturbing, loving and visually exciting.

As we stand on the threshold of a New Year – I take this opportunity to raise a cheer to the blogging community – long may it continue!
