I'm need a break. Not just from blogging, but from a lot of things. I'll still get a chance to read yours, but I need to refresh my mind. I am aware that this is a difficult time of year for many people other than myself and we all have our reasons. I may need just a few weeks or maybe a little more, but I will be back. After the solstice my attitude will brighten, the days will lengthen, and I will no longer let the bastards get me down.
