This ... Is Me

This blog has been down for several days, but to me, it's felt like an eternity. I had needed some time for me, some time to re-charge, some time to re-assess a few things.

I've since realized that writing is a part of me, and taking a break from this blog meant I was essentially shutting down a part of me.

So, yes, I'm back. I won't be as productive as I used to be, but I do have a renewed vigilance. I've trimmed the gristle from the previous blog format, and I am left with poignant simplicity -- if that makes sense. Who knows, depending on my mood, it may change again. Still, it will be to my liking and reflective of my personality -- very much like that of the activist/writer photographed in this post, Louise Bryant (so I'm told).

I also like the pic that's part of my design. Hey, there's nothing wrong with being a diva, a writer and an activist all at the same time!

This, is me.

be who you are and what you want.

if the hobby is a burden (man, this can be addictive), do exactly what you are doing.

move forward and prioritize, because the one's who are important will love you anyways.

welcome back home.

Thank God.

The slack in the blogosphere was becoming unwieldy.

thanks ... now, if only there were a way to recover my more than two years of archives ... my impulsiveness got the best of me.

I am a Winter Texan, and I live in the United Kingdom, I visit Bro. every year and have done for the last 20 years and read your items in the Herald avidly.

Your Blog has been such a source of information on my favourite place that when I found it gone I actually felt quite a sense of loss.

I am delighted you feel able to continue, as long as it is not at the expense of health or relationships, and hope it will give you support to know you are read all over the World.

Very best wishes for now and the future

And I thought it was just my "Live Bookmark" malfunctioning.

I value your perspective on issues from the larger RGV, as in, across the causeway.

So, welcome back and I love the new format.
