It’s been a long time since my last post, the wee early morning hours of August 23rd of 2013, in fact. Nearly 9 months.
“Technical Difficulties” was to mark the beginning of a few new ideas for my blog, but fate intervened.  An event occurred only a few hours after that post was published that knocked me off my game. As it turned out, I stayed out of the creative game for months to come. Even now, spreading my wings and flying back into the skies of the blog-o-sphere is done with a bit of trepidation, as it seems every time I try to crank this blog up something comes along in real life that slams my writing back to the ground.
But I soldier on. We hang in there. Every one of us is blindsided by events not of our making that change the course of our lives.  It’s part of the fabric of the Universe … and all the trite old sayings, like “What doesn’t kill ya, makes ya stronger” for example, are proven correct over and over again.  So we handle the grief and the confusion and the setbacks the best we can and … persevere.
On that note of determined optimism, I’m including one of my particular old favorites, “Perseverance,” which can be seen larger (and with a much more reasonable watermark) on my website by clicking on the image.


May your own flight through the storm clouds of life take you to a safe place.  Even if just for today.  And we’ll worry about tomorrow … tomorrow.

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
