i'm not dead yet



i'm very nearly dead, but i'm not dead yet.
i didn't go on a vacation.
nor did i have any catastrophes in my life
or get eaten by a bear.
i didn't get kidnapped or
win the lottery.
i didn't tumble down the hole and have a fantastic adventure.
i didn't break any bones
or have any traumas
i didn't float away on a balloon
or get lost at sea.
no.
i
just
haven't
been
here.
i've been everywhere else,
but not here.
and i apologize.
because i have been quite slack.
majorly slack.
i get an A+ in the class of slack.
not that i've been slack in other areas of my life.
because i haven't.
and let's face it, we're all busy for gawd's sakes.
so i just don't even go there. naw, just plain not making this a priority. let's be honest. the photography thing and the life thing? they're taking my time. and as much as i enjoy this space, i do tend to take it for granted.
like now.
so that's it.
nothing earth shattering.
nothing that you can forgive me for.
just me.
being me.
not dead yet.

At least you get an A+! One must do what one is good at...if living your life is a priority and blogdom is not (that is SO f-ed) then so be it...anyway...you have been missed Miss! I am pretty glad that you are not dead though you would come and tell me wouldn't you?

Cheers for you for knowing what your priorities are. Blogging is fun but it's not everything. Enjoy your time away from the internet. :)

I have been missing from the blogging world too lately. Lots of other things to do. But glad you are back.

Oh, you have such a good voice. I'm surprised you haven't put out a children's book yet, it would be so lovely.

Glad you're back.

I LOVE this post, Dawn.

Life kind of does have a way of taking over sometimes, in a GOOD way, too.

I love your blog, even when it's quiet. And I AM glad to know you are around, just being you. That is most excellent.

Enjoy the last week of August!! (HOLY COW!)
