Sun Soaked.
Sun Soaked.

Every time I sit down to write a post, I manage to get so caught up in where to start and how to word things and what all to address that I get confused and give up. There is no way for me to explain all that is going on in my life (and in my head and heart) without writing a novel. It would also require a great deal of energy (I don’t have) because there is a lot I haven’t figured out and don’t understand. And honestly, I’m not sure I want to put so much of myself out there like that yet.
Anyway, I suppose I am just popping in to say that I’m alive and getting through my days by focusing on the little things. As long as the sun is shining, I try to spend time outside. I wander around the back field with the dog. Or sit at the picnic table in the yard listening to my iPod or scribbling in my journal. Even if it is only 36 degrees out there, I bundle up and the sun is warm.
I’ve been in the kitchen a lot too. Perhaps I’ll be back in the next few days with some of the foodie photos I’ve snapped.

    So happy to have you back! If only for a little while. No need for explanations; we are all friends here :)

    Beautiful photos! And I completely agree about the sun – when it’s out, I’m optimistic & energized. I look forward to your return :]

    Dear Liesl, this is the first time for me, leaving a replay (first time ever I do this). In the last mounths I enjoyed your blog – from the start to now. (sorry, English is not my mother tounge). My hope and good thoughts are with you. But, as far as I noticed, you are a strong young woman and I am sure, you will handle all the things! We are strong, but often, we do not recongnize that. Best wishes from Austria!

    Yes, this is why I deleted my old blog. I would let myself get anxious about not having posted in several days, or the content of my posts (even though they were ME, would my followers enjoy them and didn’t I need to maintain a certain persona!?) It was all tiring.
    Haha. At one point I was very much into new-agey things and many of my followers subscribed to my posts for that common ground. When all of that changed and I began enjoying science, logic, & philosophy more & more, I finally made the choice to close the blog and give myself time to grow.
    I’ve been thinking of starting a new one now that I’m feeling more carefree :]
