Taking my time

I guess I haven't blogged in some time because I have been journalling. I have read a number of times that good writers (at least the ones I love) all journal. Perhaps blogging is a type of journalling but there is something so personal about writing out your feelings on paper with a pen and something so impersonal about typing black words on a white canvas. Both words are mine and are constructed by my thoughts, but the ones on the paper page are words that I have lovingly selected to flow out of my pen and not rammed onto a page by my finger tips.

So, having said that, this doesn't mean that I am stopping blogging all together. There is something so amazing about the evolution of this blog. It has been my thoughts and dreams, showed the development and deterioration of my soul, outlined the days spent travelling and it has been my refuge sometimes where I don't know where else to go. 7 years is a long time to be committed to anything. I can not abandon this blog, but I can take a hiatus. A little break from publically writing. A small glimmer in time where my most personal thoughts won't see the other side of a webpage. Perhaps this is a desire to be away from prying eyes, or perhaps this is a chance for me to really explore who I am and be thankful for my development as a human being - as hopelessly flawed as I am.

One day, perhaps, I will share with the world the musings of my mind at this time in my life. Time will tell. Time is a great gift that many of us get - and sometimes Time heals all and cures all. Here's hoping that a little time is just what I need! :)

Love you all!
