We are almost halfway through December- one of the months in which I classically post almost every other day (and some years even more frequently than that)- and this year? This year I am writing my very first December post on the 13th. That's not to say that I haven't had anything noteworthy going on... what it really boils down to is that I haven't had the time or attention to spare for this space. It's a fact that's been looming like an elephant in the room for over six months- a fact I didn't want to face because I didn't want to let go of the idea of meditating on something, fleshing it out through my camera lens, and putting it down in well-thought-out and edited words. But today, on December 13th, I have to face it: I can't maintain this blog like I want to. Like I'm used to. Like it's always been. So for now, poetically at the conclusion of the year, I will conclude my efforts to maintain this blog and instead indulge in the less-demanding, more forgiving, and practically instantaneous real-time cyberspace of Instagram. Please pop in and find me there (@cleburneaggie), where I can so much more easily share our daily treasures and trials without the guilt that has come to haunt me with this blog. I will leave this blog up for posterity, though, and perhaps at a later date and under different circumstances I will revive it. Until then, though, we wish you happy holidays and a prosperous New Year!
