Hiatus

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.

I'll be here, waiting. Hope your break is a peaceful, restful break!

Everyone deserves a break now and then, as long as you're as good as your word that "I'll be back."

Take all the time you need.
Some days life gets overwhelming.
Hugs.

Having just come through a very tough week, at the beginning of my worst month every year, I completely understand. Take care of yourself. The light will return soon!

It's difficult when the b@$+@&)$ are the ones who are in control... or soon will be.

I hope your break helps. Perhaps I will take a four-year break...

Illegitimi nil carborundum. Enjoy your break, and I hope that you get to do the things that bring you peace and satisfaction.

After the solstice? Are you a follower of the druidic religion? Anyway, I'm glad you know exactly when your batteries will be recharged.

Cat Lover said...

Take the time you need. We will be here when you come back.

You'll be missed, but these things must be looked after. Hope you have a restful break. We'll be here when you get back. Have a wonderful Christmas, Jono.

Jono said...

Thanks everyone!

Anne Johnson said...

I'm a follower of the Druidic path, and oh boy, do I light a whopper of a fire on solstice! Here in the east it gets dark at 4:30 on a cloudy day. I feel like Ebenezer Scrooge.

Linda said...

Take good care of yourself, Jono, and I totally comprehend! Sending you warm hugs and much love, and I hope that my blog posts will help to cheer you some.

Murr Brewster said...

NOOO! If we have to keep getting up in the morning, you do too!

All right, I rescind that. I have been having trouble getting up in the morning. Especially after that middle-of-the-night three-hour lacuna when reality washes over me. Hugs buddy.

I know the feeling. Much more fun reading than writing sometimes.

Hang in there, good sir! We're always around if you need some idiocy in your life.

I get this. Right there with you, Jono. May you and yours have a lovely and spiritually/mentally/emotionally rejuvenating season.

Jono said...

What a terrific bunch of humans. For those of another species, I love you, too!

Ol'Buzzard said...

A break can be a good thing. Sometimes we all need to disconnect.

Ms. Moon said...

I just discover you and you are on break! Ah well. May the solstice come soon for us all!

Jono said...

Soon, Ms. Moon, very soon.

Shammickite said...

I know exactly how you feel. The start of winter and the expectations of Christmas bring a difficult time for me too. I just didn't blog for two weeks, just couldn't energize myself. I'll be glad to see you back when this is over.

Optimistic Existentialist said...

Looking forward to your return, my blogging friend!

Betsy MacWhinney said...

Dear Jono,
I hope your break is helping. Sometimes breaks are good, and sometimes we have to carry on as if. As if things are okay, as if it's not dark, as if we aren't getting old, as if the bastards aren't there waiting, knife and fork in hand, for our pillow. (Wait, I think I mixed that metaphor. But you get my point.)

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Enjoy your break! May the solstice work its magic on you. NEVER let 'em get you down!
