Phew! A month-load of blogs done; time to pause to breathe and have dark chocolate

But the effort has been worth it.
I am often amazed about the fact that I blog about anything at all, given that I am an introvert and a very private person and the concept of blogging is a diametric opposite of this. But then, being a very private person, and quite lacking ambition, I have nothing to lose by admitting things and opening up.
This time, the blogging has also helped me achieve a neater wrapping up of the past, freeing me up from emotions and memories.
And while I don’t have any ambition in the normal ways that ambition is defined, I do have a core of energy and a great need to do things I want to do and that I feel must be done. Like the site I have started for caregivers of dementia patients in India, which I hope to continue enriching…
I will be blogging again, of course. Updates. Meandering thoughts. Sharing about work I do. And who knows, maybe a few months from now I’ll do a blog-a-day for a week, if for nothing else then just to experience this tremendous relief of posting the wrap-up blog 🙂
But now, after having done just over 51,000 words of blogging in these 31 days, I think I’ve “earned” a break; maybe, some time to explore and rediscover creativity and fun? Paint apples purple. Draw wobbly cows in yellow crayon—-unholy cows, of course. Sing out loud without bothering that I’m besura. Eat chunks of dark chocolate. BTW, if I draw an apple as a triangle, color it purple and call it a bananaberry, is it still an apple?
I suspect I’m sounding like an exam-over-am-still-hysterical person rather than a somber person wrappng up a bunch of serious blogs with a dignified consolidation message 🙂
Which showed it truly is time to take a rest from blogging….till I get bitten by the blog bug again.
Dark chocolate, here I come…
