Note: Pacing with MS

SAMSUNG

A quick note to elucidate my posting inconsistency!

Following my return to blogging a few weeks back, with great zest and anticipation I might add, my body (and mind) reminded me this week of the need to pace myself, and, in the case of the ever-unpredictable MS,  how difficult (nigh on impossible) this is to do. I so wish to maintain a regular schedule of posting and reading but find this frustratingly elusive.

I am so grateful for your reading, following, liking and commenting and find my generosity of return frustrating and disappointing – I miss out on so many of your talented, thought engendering and enjoyable posts.

My life, with MS, has been a series of starts and stops – having to let go of actions, activities, companionship’s, friendships, and more – continually being reminded of a reason and a season…

So, from now on, my presence will be more of an occasional appearance (or flurry of them), dependent on my ability to engage (I am not letting go of this activity completely!). Hopefully, I can at least maintain the Friday Haiku posts.

Thank you all for allowing me to share your parts of the blogosphere, your lives and your thoughts, and for joining me in mine.

You are all appreciated more then you may know.

I will see you on an ‘as and when’ basis as much as is possible.

Rob

The Kobold Who Breathed Fire by Richard T Wheeler

The Eldkin told Kobold Nix that he’s to become a snatcher. He, however, is set on becoming a mysterious flametongue to impress enigmatic she-kobold Shi’zine. Nix’s a little greedy thing. Too bad kobolds define greediness as a four-letter yip.
