And the blog vacation ends?

Who knows . . . dropped out for a few days because I just didn’t feel like being here. And I was busy, very busy. I’m even a few days behind in my email.

Long long ago and far far away - 8th Grade graduation

Meanwhile, a nice thing has happened in my life: one of my much-loved nephews is a life long resident of Connecticut in the town where he (and I) grew up. He’s married, and owns a mid size insurance agency in the very heart of town in a lovely old historic house that is now home to his agency along with a few lawyers.

Last month, he opened a satellite office right down here – again, in the very heart of town. It’s even in one of the older more graceful buildings. He shares it with a small law office.

Yesterday, I was in town doing errands and stopped in for a hug and a ‘hi!’. And being able to do that is, as I said, a very nice thing.

  1. Is the “pressure” a little bit off too, you think, in terms of politics and the state of things? I’m thinking a bit of 2010 and 2011 as two years where blogging started for me – and the need to vent and discuss politics was pretty persistent every day. Now it sort of fizzles away a bit.. it’s better days.. obama is effective.. the right-wing lies fades away as they lost the WH to spread fear.. and this war on social issues is just outdated and a losing game.. one might (and probably should at times) afford to become a bit less political, and enjoy other everyday things!

    • mac, you’ve managed – successfully it seems – to step away often and ‘refresh’ yourself with gentler subjects and observations.I try but keep feeling myself dragged back in. I’ve become cynical (was I always? probably) and know that ‘nothing is forever’, so the outrage of the day tends to pass into the mists. But still . . . . my little ‘breaks’ are too brief methinks.

  7. Good. The times of our lives are actually very fleeting, so savings some is a good thing.
