Untitled

Hiding in my room, safe within my womb
I touch no one and no one touches me
I am a rock
I am an island
And a rock feels no pain
And an island never cries.

Paul Simon


Guess it's obvious that I need a blogging break.

See you when the black dogs go home.

Take care, Maria. It is most certainly the season of the black dogs.

Take care of yourself sweetie. I know those dogs well.

Please keep the little black dog who brings you dead mice as tokens of his esteem. You are his alpha woman. He is your Socksie.

:^D

Eric said...

Let's go get a beer and kick those dogs.

Everyone needs a break. Take care of yourself and your family and see you soon!

Anna said...

Take good care of yourself Maria. We all love you and will be here, waiting for you to feel comfortable enough to return. Don't give those pesky black dogs any treats, maybe they'll go away.

Love,

Anna

Darn those dogs! I've been feeling a bit of their energy myself lately...

Take care of yourself, Maria, and be well and at peace.

Please don't go away forever, but I hope your break brings you peace.

Sending love.

Seems to be in the air. Tears welling up all day and a massive case of the crankies. Take care of yourself.

Sorry to hear the black dog is nipping your heels. I hope it won't be too long before he retreats to his kennel, tail between his legs.

Also, sorry to hear the RA has been playing up. I have it too and dubbed it RFA fairly soon after diagnosis. I'm sure you can guess what the F is for.

Hope you feel better very soon.

You always come back sometime--see you then.

In the clearing stands a boxer
And a fighter by his trade.
And he carries the reminders
Of every glove that layed him down
Or cut him till he cried out
In his anger and his shame,
"I am leaving, I am leaving"
But the fighter still remains.

Thanks for the wonderful blogs, past and future.

Take care, relax. We all need time to regenerate. We love you. Feel better. I love your blog even though my visiting has been sporadic. Sometimes life gets in the way.

Antonia said...

I blame that!@#$% brother-in-law. I wish you peace in your heart and joy in your life.

Move over because I need to come to that island, too.

I am being swallowed alive by my husband's Alzheimer's and sometimes it's really more than I can bear. Like tonight.

Normally I could tell you things for which I am thankful, but I didn't comment to your last post because tonight I can't think of a thing.

I hope we both feel better soon, and the black dogs, too.

I like to go in the bathtub when they come - a nice hot bath with lots of bath oil - maybe it's the oil that scares them off. They may be waiting outside the door but they don't get in that tub with me!

Take good care and let Bing and Live and Socks love you up!

Okay, so.

Annemarie of Holland said...

Don't worry, we'll wait around patiently for your return. Get well soon!

Shan said...

Ohhh. Feel better Maria. When I start going downhill, I always feel like everyone hates me and those who don't just nothing me and that is almost worse. I hope your R(f)A cools it's jets soon and you get back to normal before the Christmas festivities approach. xo

greymatters said...

Take care of yourself, Maria. And agree with the sentiment. Breaks are very good things (and sometimes necessary).

Take care and come back soon! :)
