Still Here

Well, by now, I can't imagine that people even remember me, or think I'm still here.

But, guess what?...I am!

I miss writing, I miss reading, but for personal reasons I have had to basically quit the blogging world.

I miss walking through the memories in my head and heart and sharing them. I miss the comments from readers, that let me know they too had shared similar experiences and feelings.

So now, I watch too much t.v. and eat too much icecream.

I know more about Paris Hilton than I ever imagined wanting to know.

There are too many people trying to throw their hat into the ring of running for president.

Please don't tell anyone that I laughed all the way through "Knocked Up", even though it was a ridiculous premise and kinda raunchy.

I have written and self-published a children's book, accomplishing a dream I've had for 40 years. Some of you, who I communicate with personally, know about it. Due to my unwillingness to break anonymity, I won't be telling you about it...seems sort of ridiculous but that's the way it is for now.

I suppose no one will even be reading this...but the urge to write something was just too great...

Of course I am still reading you!!! Just spent a week in the States and I definitely know too much about Paris Hilton and Melinda Doolittle :)
Congratulations on your book! Must be an amazing feeling to fulfill such a dream after 40 years! I will check back on the website you gave me some time ago....

Hope to read more again!

J.S.: wow! I'm amazed you still stop by...hope you are doing well since we spoke on-line. What part of the states were you in? Good to hear from you.

I still come by. Your mysterious disappearance intrigued me. I hope that all is well.

That's great, kudos!

As for the rest, I hope all is well. Been wondering whatever happened to you...

We all know you rock :-)

My personal vice is bittersweet chocolate, not to mention gourmet jellybeans. Enjoy the ice cream--it might make up for the Paris Hilton overdose. (Oy.)

Mazal tov on the book! May it bring you great satisfaction. (Fame and/or fortune would also be nice, but . . . ). May you continue to have--and/or to make--your dreams come true.

I'm selfishly hoping that you have an opportunity to return to blogging in the future.

See...? We're still reading your blog. We're the die-hard fans, I guess.

I'm more than pleased with the fact that you sought out a personal dream and fulfilled it -- but you already knew that.

Please try to pop your head in to the blog world a little more often. We miss you!!

I made my blog "private" - by invitation only. That's one option if you want to keep blogging but can't realistically stay anonymous.

Jack's Shack said...

I am backkkkkkkkkk.

Sheyna said...

Heya! Quick note before Shabbat begins... I check in when I can. I'm glad you're back! And I **AM** going to fix the link to your blog in Bloglines... no idea what's going on there, but it's personal now. Grrr...

Kol hakavod on the book! Send me an email if I can be of any help taking the next step.

Shabbat shalom!
