A needed break


I'm taking the summer off from blogging, and possibly longer.

I've enjoyed posting and chatting with those who've honored me by stopping by since I started The Token Hippie over a year ago. But writing should never feel like a chore, and lately posting feels more like work than recreational writing. And because I make my living as a writer I don't need to add to the workload which has increased recently with an unexpected, out-of-the-blue job offer.

So I'm taking a hiatus, for how long I don't know. I've got more than enough to keep me occupied in my free time. The farmers' markets are going well this year, we're up to three horses to ride an maintain and since something has to give it looks like it's going to be the blog.

Thanks for reading. But most of all, thanks getting to know me and letting me get to know you. Have a good summer.

I hear you, Morgan, blogging is a bitch goddess to be certain. She giveth with one hand and taketh with the other.
Enjoy your summer and, if our paths never cross again, your journey.

Smiles, everyone...smiles!

Have a good summer, sugar. I'll miss your posts, I'd be *horrified* if anything caused you to not have fun with your craft anymore. I know so very few people who make a living doing what they love.

Oh now I'm sad. But I understand. I kind of expected with summer coming and all the things you and your husband and kids together do that blogging might fall by the wayside. Like Mitzibel I'll miss your posts and hope you'll come back with more beautiful writing and pictures when you are ready.
God Bless You,
Margaret

Dammit, I'll miss you too. Have a wonderful summer with your family...maybe you'll return invigorated in the fall, fingers crossed?

Well count me among those who probably are thinking how poor your timing is, what with Jerry Falwell dying and all. I was sure you'd have something to say, and came here to find your abandoning..er, taking a break. Don't be gone long. And when you come back, how about putting that wench picture back up for us boys.

Morgan said...

Thanks, guys. I really appreciate the kind words. Hopefully I'll be able to come back in the fall.

CJ, per your Falwell comment, believe me; it was difficult not to immediately come back from vacation and ponder whether my least favorite hate-monger woke up in the afterlife, looked around at the green splendor and then turned over to see Tinky Winky lying next to him, smiling and smoking a cigarette.

You decide to take a break on my 40th birthday?
I am honored.
Take your break and come back revitalized.
Now, go on and see Colonel Angus before he heads back off to war. That rapscallion!

Look Hippie Girl, Summer doesn't start until June 21, so you owe us posts until then.

Get busy and stop whining!!!

You have a good summer too. They say the sun shines and the sky is all [0,0,255] on the RGB scale. Honestly, I wouldn't know.

Go, then.
There are other worlds than this.
