  1. I am drawn to the idea of balance. You wrote, “Need a little help getting your blog writing and other activities balanced in your life?” And it reminded me of my latest adventure signing up with Twitter to, at last, dip my toe into the pool of social media that I have been avoiding. I created an account, and, just three days later, I closed it. Clearly there must be something wrong with me because I felt sheer panic at the high speed connectivity that others seem to revel in. Twitter’s message length limitations felt like minimalism on acid. I couldn’t condense everything I wanted to say to a handful of characters. I love words too much and was instantly at odds with Twitter. Alas, my search for balance has been postponed.

  2. Thanks for linking to the A to Z thingy! I’ve been scarce lately on some blog threads. I’ll be back to my usual pattern in May.

    Hope you’re having an awesome weekend 🙂
