Something's gotta change...

I am bored with my blog.
I love my blog, for what it is, but I am bored with it.
It is boring, and I don't want to do a boring blog.
I just said that, didn't I? Told you I was bored.
Bored may not be my only problem. Perhaps it's......"deeper"....

I doubt it. Basically, I'm just bored.

It's become a chore. It's meant to be fun, for you, the observer, and for me, the author. I doubt it's been fun for either of us of late.

I need to think about it. What to do with it. Get some feedback. Weigh it. Discuss it. Pray over it. I need to pray about a lot of things.

I am thankful. Thankful I could do this blog. Thankful I am not afraid to take a break, to try to figure it out. Thankful to Harry & Cindy. And Bob in Virginia. And Tom. And Bobby. And Jack & Jeanne. And a whole host of others too. You know who you are. Part of the hundred or more each day who stopped by to just look-in. I feel bad to take time off, but I am pretty dry right now.

I have some pictures. But pictures need to do something. To tell a story. To show something that would not be seen. To bring thought, and feelings. I am not sure that has been happening for some time now. I liked my bit on the house, in black and white, from last week. That's the only thing in weeks I have liked.

That's not enough. Or good enough.

I need a break.

I bet I'll be back, but I don't know when. Maybe next week. Maybe next month. Perhaps in June. How about.....sporadically? I don't know.

I'm bored with my blog, but I said that. Thanks.

Lastly, I'll close with, check back. I hate to lose you. You're my friends.
Merry Christmas, if I don't see you. I can say that.


  1. I am saddened by this news. i lived in south Amenia for more than twenty years in a very old house with my mother. when she passed away i was bereft. homeless.
    I now lead a happy life in palo alto california. But this time of year, more than anything, i wish to return to that glorious place. i was a choirmistress in sharon and i think it is one of the most picturesque places on earth. I can't inspire you to continue. i will say that several years ago i pledged to get out and walk everyday. it has changed my life. i won't let a day go by without spending some time under God's blue sky. Maybe if you walked more, even in the cold and carried your camera, you would find the inspiration you seek. and your loyal fans would get to see more than the plaza and roadside shots. thanks for all the great pictures.

  2. Thankfully, I know this blog is not the only thing that connects us. And one of these days I'll get into your store!
