It has been nearly a month since I last blogged and for the month prior to that, had found myself with less time to devote to this pursuit than I would like. In the ebb and flow of life-between the challenges of work, family, and personal needs-somethings rise up and others fall to the back by necessity. Once the pause happened, I felt that I would only return when I felt I could potentially return to regular entries. I am hopeful that I now can. How did I feel when I wasn't immersed in the blogosphere? I missed the outlet for the "connections" I made while seeing patients and carried on my day to day clinical practice. I dearly missed writing and the reward that comes from completing a creative endeavor. I felt I had set aside some good friends, even though these are friends I know only from their writing and their "profiles". On some levels, I felt unburdened of the "deadlines" I had set for myself for writing and I realized (AGAIN) that the blog is for me-an outlet, a connection- and not an obligation!
So I return. Hopefully stronger than before, with renewed vigor and interest. I hope you are still out there reading...
