I am taking a lovely break from blogging and — indeed — from my computer. My days are still filled with delight: substitute teaching, classic films (how many Screwball Comedies is too many?), museums, books, and friends. My heart is still finding delights large and small. In a few weeks (or months) I’ll start sharing them again.
In the meantime, each week I hope you find and savor your own delights. A sack of jelly beans has many colors. May your delights likewise bless you with insight, joy, kindness and memory.
As the poet Mary Oliver wrote,
“The multiplicity of forms! The hummingbird,
the fox, the raven, the sparrow hawk, the
otter, the dragon fly, the water lily! And
on and on. It must be a great disappointment
to God if we are not dazzled at least ten
times a day.”

Let’s keep it delightful and joyful. Much love to you, always.
Good for you Carol Ann taking a hiatus especially from the computer to revel in your other activities! This is a chance to renew and transform. Carry on to that new land. See you back here when you’re ready.
Have a wonderful break! Most of us need them from time to time. I know I sure do. Have fun watching those screwball comedies.
Enjoy your break from the computer! May you have more delights in the new year!
I’ll miss your weekly blog! Laurna
I’ll miss your blog on NZ Friday mornings. Hope to see you again soon after a break. Enjoy many delights and small pleasures!
I will miss your uplifting and informative weekly delivery of delights direct to my inbox (without you, Alma Thomas would still be unknown to me!), as well as your sustained encouragement of my own blogging efforts. I hope your break will be both peaceful and joyful, and that our paths will cross again before too long.
Enjoy your well-deserved break Carol Ann. I’ll be here when you get back!
For everything there is a season. Enjoy your space, air, and lightness!
Dearest Carol Ann
Popped in to visit after my haphazard blogging break to find you on yours. Hope it has been a dazzling time!
See you when you return! Big Hug!
I hope you are enjoying your delightful break. Think passing by to say hello as I thought of you.
