Call Off the Search

Thanks, dear hearts, for checking in with me, during these many weeks and months of not blogging! Nothing's up, nothing's wrong! I'm just in a waiting mode, or observing mode, or I'm filling up with something that will pour out soon. It's been a lovely, busy summer of family gatherings and extended "spring cleaning." I've been throwing my life away, as I like to put it, but that means, basically, recycling a ton of paper. (Maybe an actual ton? I hope not that much! Many, many rejected poems. And other stuff. Don't worry, I keep records. Er, too many records. Hence...)

I've been trying to track down a particular song I used to hear. Haven't found it, but I've found the voice who sang it: Katie Melua. And another song I love, by her: "Nine Million Bicycles." Here's the fantastic video of that at YouTube! And I love "Call Off the Search," too! So, yes, I'm here. And not here. Call off the search.

Balsam is here with me, too, blooming madly along the fence.

Good to see your post, Kathleen. I haven't been worrying or waiting, but just interested to see if you'll reemerge in the blog world.

We appreciate you checking in once in awhile. With my sons we used to call this check-in a "one ping only", referring to the quote from "Hunt for Red October". www.youtube.com/watch?v=jr0JaXfKj68

I'm glad you're back (I've been offline for a few days and then catching up from being offline, so I'm late to comment).
