I DEFINITELY SMELL SOMETHING

Linking In

Yesterday, I peeked in to read some posts from some of my favorite bloggers.  I haven't been around for a while.  No posts, no comments...nothing.  I don't know what compelled me to get on and see what you all were up to yesterday but I did and this is what I discovered:

The talented and funny Vinnie continues to have wonderfully hilarious conversations with Mrs. C.  (It's good to know some things never change.  My heart eases with the laughter he coaxes out of me)

The beautifully descriptive and enchanting baglady has taken me to Mykonos.  (It's true.  I went to Greece.  It was wonderful)

A brilliant, quirky and honest man, Mr. L Street discusses siblings, with humor and honesty.  (Plus, he shares the true benefits of a zen garden)

My favorite paramedic, Spence, shares the story of an untimely death from his unique viewpoint.  (His stories always provide a personal connection to the scene, through the people, the scenery, even the inanimate objects)

And this, boys and girls, is what I have learned...my life may feel bottomless right now but to keep going, I need to be connected.  Maybe that's why I signed back on yesterday.  I know I've distanced myself from everything for the past year, stretching the tethers that connect me to the rest of the world to the point where you could probably play them like harp strings at this point.  This is one of the ways for me to link back in which is why I have linked a few noteworthy bloggers into this post.

Thanks for checking in with me too.

  1. My wife says that about me too. Only it's more like, "GAH! You'll never change!" And she kinda sounds all exasperated when she says it.

    I'm glad you reconnecting too.

    1. Your wife sounds awesome. That's how you know she loves you. All that "GAHing" and yet she's still there.

  2. Susan...you rock. You are a talented writer and, from what I've gathered, a wonderful mother. You will move on from the hurt. I know, I've experienced horrific loss myself. When we break free and decide we can move on and the memories are happy instead of sad, we begin healing. All the best to you beautiful lady.

  7. Hey I have popped into your blog a few times but you were very quiet. Was absolutely delighted to see you in my reader today, if only for you to say hello and let us know that you are still hanging in there x

    1. Thanks so much. I hope to be checking in on everyone's blogs regularly but am not sure about the frequency of my own writing. I'm going to try though. Writing had always been my happy place and I'm trying to remember how to get back to it.

    1. Healing is what I'm hoping for too. I have a feeling it will help to be back here. It's a way to reconnect that's simpler than most.
