The time has come

the walrus said, to talk of many things. Of shoes and ships and sealing wax, and cabbages and kings.

It’s time my friends. To say good bye to this space. After giving it much thought, I am taking an indefinite break.  I will likely leave this blog up for the time being, because I still haven’t decided how best to preserve it.  I have many memories on here that I don’t want to lose forever.  Maybe I’ll change my mind and decide to start up again.  But quite honestly, this just feels as if it has run its course.  I am unendingly grateful for those of you who have commented and stuck around all these years (I know! years! can you believe it?).   Blogging is fun, but getting to know you all were what really made it worthwhile.

I expect that when school is over I will have more time to read, and I don’t plan to stop commenting, so maybe you’ll see me that way.  I don’t take many photos any more, but I’m guessing that will change with time and the newbie arriving next year, so you can find me on flickr.  And of course there is still the evil facebook.  Some of you already know me from there.  If you don’t, but would like to find me just send me an email: dutch_girl76 at yahoo dot com.

Good luck, and I’ll see you when I see you…

    You know, I just decided this very same thing. It ran its course for me as well. I am very excited for you. Would love to catch up with you on Facebook. Unfortunately, (or fortunately) I was never able to break THAT addiction. Best wishes!

    I’m so sorry to see you stop… I love reading, not only about your life, but your perspective on it.. I’ll miss it.

    I’m sorry to see you go too. I’ve always loved your writing and unique (and lovely) way of viewing things. Many, many good wishes to your and your family.

    You are a more conscientious blogger than I — a few weeks ago I just decided “done” and changed my blog to private.

    But I still find that I have some thoughts / observations / ideas to explore that have no home to live in… so I may start up something new just for that.

    However I don’t anticipate having friendships develop like they did the first time around. I’m not sure what it is about the blogosphere these days, but it just has a different vibe now. There is a “showiness” rather than just honesty and searching for answers to the tough questions in life.

    Anyway, sorry to ramble. Just wanted to say “I get it” and “I’m right there with you”.
