Captain of my ship

September 6, 2015

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.

    Ah, the elusive “balance.” It’s sort of like my weight … if I let up for long, I lose all control! Glad to see you again.

    Well done you! I’m overcommitted with blog & related FB pages. There’s other stuff that has to be done! RH

    These are gorgeous! – I know it can be difficult visiting blogs and trying to keep up with commenting and posting. Sometimes we all need a break but we also need to remember to encourage others so a pop in now and then for a visit is a good thing too.
