I like to think I am in control of myself,
captain of my ship,
sailing where I wish,
but I confess I was not.
I was living my life glued to the computer screen.
It’s important for a writer, who uses a keyboard and computer, to sit by a screen, but it was consuming me and taking away from my real life.
I was addicted like a bee to the sweetest of nectar.
In an attempt to recover from my addiction, I had to stop completely. The pull was so strong I almost couldn’t do it, but because it really bugged me that something else besides me was sailing my ship, I stubbornly persisted and finally succeeded.
Now that I am back, I am committed to balance.
Please forgive me if I do not visit your blogs as often as I did before. I enjoy reading your lovely posts and will visit occasionally, but life is precious, and I need to experience it firsthand.
Also, please forgive me if I do not respond to your lovely comments. I will read and cherish each and every one of them, but if I do not respond, do not be annoyed.
It is not you.
It is only me trying to keep balance in my life.
It feels so good to be back.
I missed you all.
