Yes, I’ve been missing in action for some weeks. Why? Maybe it was Covid fatigue, frustration with the current politics in the U.S. and the unsettling events of January 6, senseless killing that goes on every day. Whatever the reason, I felt the need to take a hiatus from the blog world as well as from all that was causing my unrest.

Returning to Maine, hopefully, provides the means for rediscovering the serenity I have lost. This place is tonic for me, and already I feel its impact as I sit on the porch and look out over Rockport Harbor.

Whether sunny, overcast or sheathed in fog, the harbor doesn’t change except with the tide. It is constant which diminishes the craziness that still exists.

As the days pass, I hope to find my way back to all of you who are such loyal followers. I so appreciate your presence and look forward to sharing once again those things that make my heart sing. Stay tuned!

    I understand your frustration but hope you don’t disappear…If people like us disappear what will we be left with…the radical right….Mary in Colorado

    1. What I regret more than anything, Mary, is that we are so polarized and there seems to be no upcoming end to that.

    2. Leave inciteful words, and name calling out of comments, please!
      I’m conservative and not radical, thank you!

    1. Thank you for your hugs, Susan. I feel them though received from afar.

  9. It’s wonderful that you have this serene and beautiful retreat to recoup. This has been a very difficult (at best) year+. So much to rankle the heart and soul. I have worked extra hard to make certain our home inside and out feels like a safe and welcoming place. I know my husband NEEDS that. He has been through hell and back.😔 Enjoy your time in Maine. I look forward to all the pretty pictures so I can live vicariously through you this summer. Welcome back.

    1. The heart and soul have, indeed, been rankled which makes returning to Maine even more special. Somehow I rest easier here. I feel for Ramon who I’m sure appreciates your effort to ensure calm at home.
