This post is hard to write. I've put it off for about a week, even though I knew I had to do it. I've decided to quit blogging. For how long? I've no idea--maybe six months, maybe forever.
My life is full of really good things, and a friend brought it to my attention that I needed to cut some of the good things so that the others can be great. (Thank you, Jim Collins.) Cutting things out is hard, but I had to admit that this little corner of the internet was less good than some other things I spend time on. "Write blog post" was a common line on my to-do list that somehow never got crossed off.
I actually love to write, but I think I might find the return to pen and paper, and my eyes only, freeing. And if I decide to come back, it will be because I have something definite to say, and because this is the best way to say it.
Thank you for reading, whether it was one post or many.
