Blogging Break

Hello dear friends. I need to take a break from this blog. I have been battling some rather severe gastrointestinal issues for more than a month, and there is, at present, no end in sight. It's left me feeling very depleted and without much energy for the essentials of life.

As a result, I'm feeling the need to take a break from blogging for the present. I appreciate your faithfulness as readers and commenters, your prayers and well-wishes. They comfort and encourage me every single day.

Blessings to you all. I hope to be back before too long.

Pax, C.

Remembering Hiroshima

Where the mind is without fear
By Rabindranath Tagore

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic wars;
Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit;
Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought and action -
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.

Maintaining Blog Silence

Not feeling very well, X about two weeks. No energy to blog at present. Details (well, not details, but hopefully positive developments) after my second trip to the doctor today. Wish me luck! Or, if you're the praying sort.... nothing big, I don't think. Just enough to keep me wishing I could sleep for a hundred years.

See you soon.
