Short Break Becomes Indefinite Leave of Absence

Friends, Dexter and I are taking an indefinite leave of absence from blogging. 

Nothing bad is going on, but blogging has lost its spark for me of late and I don't thinking posting should ever be forced.

Dexter and I are enjoying wonderful walkies, tennis ball fun, trick training, and just hanging out together. Know that Dexter has really blossomed in the time since our Mango crossed over the bridge. He's more confident and playful than ever and it is wonderful to see his personality come out. 

I'm sure we'll be back should there be any significant events. Sadly, it is often bad news that brings bloggers out of retirement. 

Here's a photo I took of Dexter today on our walk. We discovered a wonderful little outdoor theater on the campus of the local university. Took some time to just sit and enjoy the quiet. I'm doing more of that lately. Savoring moments. Really seeing what's around me. That includes breaking the tether to the camera (part of why we haven't been blogging). 

It's all good.

  14. Mom & dad were just talking about that. There's a scene in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty where Sean Penn's character doesn't photograph rare snow leopards because he didn't want to take away from the moment. Dad said he felt that way today, when they saw some bald eagles, and momma has been trying to focus less on getting great photos and more on just enjoying time with each other. So we think this is a good thing. We always enjoy your posts and we look forward to the time when blogging once again holds a spark for you.

  19. Understood. I'm feeling the same issues myself. Have a fun summer with Dexter, enjoying your walkies and watersport funball activities!

  20. I completely understand... I've been feeling that way about my Farmer blog. I still enjoy posting in the horse one to track our progress, but the farming one just seems so pointless since I'm not growing a garden and don't really feel like I have a farm anymore. And all I'm doing with Jackal is enjoying our time together and trying to lose weight... weight loss is kind of boring blog fodder LOL! I'll still get to see what you're up to on FB so I'm happy hehe. Enjoy your break and I'm happy everything is going well for you and Dexter. :)

  21. Indy and I will miss your blogging - but all great things must come to an end...or change in some way. Life is not about standing still - it is about moving with it and enjoying all the days we have left on this earth. Have fun :):) Are you on FB? If so, I'd love to follow you (I am Diane Taylor om FB or dmpfromri on Instagram).
