Postpone No More

I know, I know ~ you thought I was never coming back!

But ~ But ~ But ~ I wanted to ~ I thought about it ~ I really did!

I have a list of excuses.... but who really wants to hear them?

Let's just get back on track and hug each other and say "welcome back dear friend".

I read this poem this morning on one of my favourite blogs ~ Shutter Sisters, and thought it was a good place to start again, especially the "postpone no more" line.

Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road, 
Healthy, free, the world before me, 
The long brown path before me leading wherever I choose. 

Henceforth I ask not good-fortune, I myself am good-fortune, 
Henceforth I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing, 
Done with indoor complaints, libraries, querulous criticisms, 
Strong and content I travel the open road.

Song of the Open Road, Walt Whitman
The view from our driveway


  1. Welcome back! So glad to see you. Happy New Year, and here's to lots of good adventures in 2012.
    Lovely verse!

  2. Welcome back Kim!! I can see that you have a lot of snow. We are having a blizzard here today and I am not liking it one bit. ;-)

  3. Thank you Cass and Beth! Sometimes it is so hard to jump back in the water isn't it?
