Topsy -Turvy or Confusion

It seems like a few bloggers are leaving the blogosphere right now, and I just want to say, I am not one of them. I am just, well, running full steam, everything in my life is running so fast it's hard to keep up, I don't know if I am coming or going. Easter/Passover is coming up and I am helping my mother get ready for the hoards of family that will visit and tomorrow is a milestone birthday for my father.

It's like the line in Tolstoy's masterpiece "Anna Karenina", depending on the translation, "Everything was in it's confusion at the Oblonsky's house", or "Everything was topsy-turvy at the Oblonsky's house".

And I promised D. a reader, I would write a column for her, to answer the question she has on the death of her brother. And I try. I keep writing, and it's just I choke for lack of words, something that is crippling to a writer. I have a trash bin of Word docs on my Mac, I've interviewed friends who have also gone through this, and nothing.. nothing is good enough to post. I will have something to post very shortly. I have not forgotten you.

Good you're still around.

There are so many NEW bloggers, I don't have much time to miss the ones who have left, unless they have been in my own blogging life for a long time.

Life happens.

I understand. Come back when you can. Have fun.

I referred to you today. I hope that's okay?

@Adelaide, I am glad you read mine, it's been awhile since you commented, glad you are still here.

@Mark, like your blog too!

Upon reflection, I do not see the confusion nor the chaos that some are writing about. What will be, will be, and there is nothing I or you can do about it.

Blogging DOES take lots of time, even steals time from other projects, work...I do not see how Peeps who are still in the work force can do this and stay sane...
I have to remember that always--ALWAYS--God is in charge.

I also like your blog, Susan!

I would like to send you something for the post for D about the loss of her brother. Will try to put it together this weekend for you.

I've found that sometimes going back through my previous blog entries and revamping one of them with new knowledge and information helps.

Yeah, I've seen a few good blogs at a standstill lately. Life, as they say, gets in the way sometimes. I've scaled back but by no choice of my own and (hopefully) not for long. Take care of yourself first, like in a crashing plane. If you don't, you have little left to offer others. I look forward to seeing what you post in the future.

I think that people leave when they have other things that they want to move onto. I am still enjoying writing. I keep it in perspective though. I don't want it to overcome my life.

Never left blogsphere.
The problem is that it cost me too much to blog because I feel very sad and angry.
Maybe I should just visit blog friends.
All I know its that I will never lose contact with any of the people I knew and, I really mean it, some of them are on my mind even when I'm away from the computer at the streets.
I believe we know some of the feelings that it's only possible to communicate among those who are blogging.
This is amazing.
The connection we have...
