Since I started blogging some six years ago, this perhaps has been my longest hiatus from the blog-sphere. Illness, Death, Work pressure, nothing stopped me from posting atleast one or twice a month. But since August of this year, life has been taking funny turns, leaving me with very little time to do anything but just get up and show up. It’s not been all bad, but not all good and for sure it has all been very very time consuming and at time both physically and emotionally draining. My reading has taken a back seat like never before; I did not even participate in the October Readathon, an event unheard off sine I discovered it years ago and let’s not even get into blogging misses lately. The last novel I finished was on more than a month back that too on a long flight. Life has been thrown off balance completely;so what transpired – plenty
- I got promoted ..Yay
- With promotion came double truck load of work and exhaustive travel….some yay and not so yay
- Dad was in and out of the hospital for a while….definitely not a yay moment
- My sister went through a terrible break up….for sure not yay
- And…..some other very exhaustive personal stuff, which we an discuss when we know more
Life briefly speaking has been very very roller coaster like and I am not even sure we are finally settled. However I am trying to get some rhythm and regularity going and blogging is for sure part of that rhythm as is reading…… so here we go again.
How have you all been? What all have I missed? Please do drop by with some comments on how you all have fared and I hope to catch up with your blogs/posts soon.

Yay!!!! You’re back!!!! 😀
Hahahhaaaa….Yes! Had to work through stuff….still working through…..but yes, will try and be more around now!
there’s no doubt about it, life has a mind of it’s own… i sometimes think it plans us instead of the other way around… congrats on your promotion-i trust the money is better also…and i hope your relatives are doing okay… i’ve found it’s easy to lose sight of the important things: flowers, trees, sunsets, woody trails… anyway, glad to see your imprint again!
I so agree; life has a mind of its own and well, we never really control it…we just manage to play catch up if we are really lucky. Thank you for your kind words….it’s important to be reminded what is really matters – books, trees, flowers
Glad to see you back, Cirtnecce! 🙂 Big congrats on your promotion!! My work life has been crazy as well (might be getting promoted this week, too…so nervous). Anyway, hoping things get better. ❤

Thank You…here’s hoping to hear some good news coming from your way soon…..things are better…fingers crossed.
Some years are like that aren’t they? So glad to see your resilient nature has kicked in and is getting you through this time. Sometimes the only way to get through the tough times is to get through!
Stay strong and good luck
Thank You….Yes some years are just weird! But you gotta do what you gotta do and hopefully things should pick up soon! Thank You so much for your good wishes!
It’s good to see you posting again, Cirtnecce, though it’s understandable that you haven’t had much time to think about blogging. Congratulations on the promotion and I hope things are getting better for your dad and sister.
Thank You for your good wishes Helen…I am still trying to find a rhythm but yes thing are settled enough to start trying to find it at the very least. 😀
