Stepping Away

Looking around me, assessing what’s left undone or long neglected, I conclude: It’s time to to step away from this space. It’s time to reconsider what brought me here in the first place... what makes me hang on, clinging, almost. But never mind any lengthy introspection, for now. I will say I cannot help writing, and I love taking pictures, and I’d have loved to be an artist, a “success.” Maybe something of that is possible... but I am going to take some time to look for my path elsewhere.

Thank you... I’ve made some dear friends, here, and have many, many happy recollections of connecting. So much so, that I won’t say “the end” or even “goodbye,” but just, “hold on a sec.”

  3. It's hard to define "success", but CB is certainly one way. Thanks for sharing and connecting in this amazing way. It's a lot of work, being an excellent writer and photographer, and then sharing! I'll be holding on for more.........Ruth

  6. What Katie said! You'll be missed, Natalie however long your break. I'm glad you've rambled and considered and reflected and observed "out loud" here in this space, letting us a little bit into your lives.
