Trial Separation

Dearest 200:  

So sorry I haven't called.  

T'hing is, there isn't much firing me up lately. Days are rather peaceful and routine, demons are quiet, and yes, I have been a bit distracted with that scarf project and the school's big basket raffle.  Plus, I'm not convinced that all those random details about my life are actually interesting. So I think we need a break from each other.  You know, see how it goes--whether either of us misses the other.  Who knows, I may find that I just need to write; you may find that you just need to be written.  

You've been a wonderful friend and e-therapist, and I've cherished the e-friends and readers you've brought me.  You were there for me on grey days, and you put a spring in my step on pink, orange, and yellow days.  So let's be sure to stay in touch. I have a feeling our paths will cross again someday.  


P.S.  I should let you know that I am planning to continue to see Zone 4 Dirt Chronicles. I'm not choosing her over you; our relationship is just more of a reference thing.  Surely you understand. 


  1. well, i guess we'll have to start chatting on the phone again...cause this is how i stay current on your current events. do you really want that? ;-)
    but honestly, i love your blog!

  2. Patty where am I going to get interesting reading. I am going to miss the blogs.

  3. I know. The more you do, the more it seems like a break up when you stop.

  4. I feel your pain! Nobody should ever be a slave to their blog -- but it's nice to know it's there when you need it/him/her...
    I hope over the year(s) we'll be checking in on each other's gardening progress & hear more stories of your wonderful family -- but meanwhile, peace, dear cyberfriend!

  5. If it's run its course, it's time for a break, but I will miss hearing from you.
