Change of Venue

I was going to title this post “Going Dark” or perhaps “Thanks for the Ride.” But a change of venue is really what I’m after, although how that will play out is beyond me. Change of venue implies the show will go on, just not here, not now. And it’s God’s show anyways – something I’m becoming increasingly more aware of on a daily basis.

So for the time being, I’m hanging up the blogging shoes. It’s not where I want to be or what I want to be doing right now. And if I do it, this is not how I want to be doing it. It took a week at the beach to come to this conclusion but just one day back to come to peace with that decision.

It really has been great. Thanks to all of you who’ve stopped by and read. To those who’ve taken time to comment both on the blog and in person, and especially those of you with whom I’ve enjoyed some great email exchanges, my deepest appreciation. You know where to find me.

So this is my last post here for now but so as to not make an abrupt departure, I’ll leave things as they are for a few days. Blessings!

    It sounds like you might be focusing on writing in other venues?

    I too found that it was hard to blog (well) and write. I’ve actually come to the conclusion that I’m okay with what I’m doing online for now.

    Keep in touch!

  9. All the best in the world to you, Dianne. I hope you see your dream come true – you’re such an excellent writer. And I so respect you for doing what you know in your heart is the best thing for you.

    I’ll always treasure the memory of you sending that big box of books to Rob (and me) right after his shoulder surgery. I knew then, you’re just a great, great person.

    My sister Bev is so lucky to actually go to church with you and know you in real life. I’ll live vicariously through her. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Enjoy the journey to your new place. Throw your heart into the work it will entail and savor the discoveries you will no doubt encounter.
