I look back at this blog of mine and smile at some of the memories it captures then feel sad that I no longer seem to have time to keep it up to date. Life is like that. Things that you once found important are forgotten as a new rhythm emerges.For a long time whilst I was a stay at home mum this space gave me a voice and you my friends gave me a listening ear. Somedays your comments and the voices of other blogs would be the only adult conversation I had. They sustained me through many a difficult time. I am lucky that I have a good support network of friends and family but sometimes there are things that you just do not want to, or can not, discuss with anyone. This was my place to escape to.
Over the time that has past I guess Instagram has taken the place of this space. It's just so easy to do. The click of a button on my phone and boom...a moment shared. Like when Josie could not resist one last dip in the sea on our last night of our holiday in Ireland. A new fast and easy rhythm. I think though that however fast and easy Instagram is it is not enough. It doesn't have the depth and potential memory making. It doesn't fufill the motive I had when I started this blog. My Reasons are still the same just a little older.
Maybe I do need to find a little time to come back. Maybe my new rhythm can include this space.
