return to blogging

I have been traveling.  January in Missouri can be hard to take, so now that I have retired, my wife and I go to Florida.  A couple of years ago she had cancer surgery and chemo. She has been healed, but we decided it is important to do some of the things we want to do now.  This life is a temporary gift.

During this travelling time I do not blog.  I think it is important for bloggers to take a break. Andrew Sullivan, who has been blogging for fifteen years has announced that he is going to stop.  Among his reasons:

I’m a human being before I am a writer; and a writer before I am a blogger, and although it’s been a joy and a privilege to have helped pioneer a genuinely new form of writing, I yearn for other, older forms. I want to read again, slowly, carefully. I want to absorb a difficult book and walk around in my own thoughts with it for a while. I want to have an idea and let it slowly take shape, rather than be instantly blogged.

I identify with some of this.  I am going to keep blogging.  But there will be occasions where the blog hibernates for a while.  I think it is necessary in order to keep going.
