Adios, 2008

What a tumultuous year it was. Let's hope that things improve in the coming years.

In terms of this blog, 2008 was not as active as the previous year. I have posted about half of what I posted in 2007, and the last few entries have been photo and video postings. This year I did not participate in many writing challenges. The stresses of work occupied a bigger chunk of my time this year, and left me with little energy to attempt any creative endeavors, ruminations about life, or explorations of my feelings.

I do not know what will happen with the blog going forward. I have no intention to end it, but I have to find the spark again. I do not want my blog to be another chore I dread.


  1. no te preocupes, siempre hay momentos de mayor lucidez que otros, eso me parece que nos pasa a todos los que nos atrevemos a sentir y redactar, apalabrar lo que vemos, pensarmos o sentirmos con letras.

    te deseo muchas felicidades. parece que saqué algo tuyo, somos hablitas.

    y sí, ojalá este nuevo año venga mejor, porque este que se va era como un cáncer sometido a quimioterapias, que está jodido pero le siguen alargando la vida, muchas veces innecesariamente.

    besos a todos!!!! felicidades...

  2. Muy cierto lo que dices, querida sobrina. Gracias por los buenos deseos. Yo estoy muy, pero que muy orgullosa de ti.

    Feliz año nuevo. Un beso y abrazo con cariño.

  3. Mis mejores deseos para ti y tu familia.

    Un abrazo,


  4. just droppin in to say happy new year honey.... hope this is te year all of your dreams come true......

  5. Brian, Enid and Paisley: many hugs to all of you. Thanks for the comments and the visits. I hope all is well with you.

  6. 2008 was a rough year! I am hopeful 2009 will be a much better year.

    I am also contemplating the way I run my blog for the upcoming year.

  7. Same here about the blog.

    A couple of fellow bloggers had a hiatus and seem to be all the better for it, but I worry that if I stop I might not be able to pick it up again.
