I Got 99 Problems But The Blog Ain’t One

I planned to write a Sun Neptune poem to complement this lovely Monet for you guys a few days ago, but life has thrown me a few curve balls. Some have been nasty. Now that Mercury is direct, I think the time is right for a brief update. On the same day that I discovered my friend / neighbor had suddenly and tragically passed away, I received some upsetting news from my doctor.  A few days later I went on a job interview. The following day, I started my new job. Boom, boom, boom. This kind of pattern has occurred in my life once before. Unexpected death, sudden job change. I know the circumstances are different, but to say I feel overwhelmed is insufficient somehow. The word overwhelming is underwhelming in this case. Can someone suggest a better adjective?

I may blog about the health issue; perhaps when it is behind me. I just want you lovely people to know that I may have to take a brief hiatus. I love love love blogging , yet I have been warned that when life gets too busy, my motivation may wane. Is this hiatus business contagious? A few of my bloggettes have receded into a non- blog state of being this winter. I may be joining them. I am just not sure. I will make an announcement if I take a break. This I promise you.

I need some time to collect myself and adjust to this new reality  that I have just entered. It is a mixture of grief, giddiness, sadness, fear, and excitement. The job is amazingly awesome and ridiculously demanding, so I don’t know which end is up. I have been slightly sleep deprived, anxious, and confused – recipe for Pisces pie. Have you tasted it? It is fishy, mushy, and topped with a flaky pastry crust.

I think of you often and hope you forgive my lack of reading, liking, and commenting. It has been sporadic at best because I simply lack the energy. It is comforting to know that creative magic in the form of imaginative, heartfelt posts awaits in my reader. The world continues to bubble with passion and juiciness while I work to regain my footing.

Pisces, it’s all about the footing……..
