Nothing to see

I've rewritten this post about five times, and nothing sounds right. So I'm just going to say it, plain and simple.

You may have noticed I haven't posted in a while. I seem to have run out of things to share. These past four years, I've shown and told you pretty much everything I could possibly ever show and tell you about my garden.

My garden is still central to my life, but not so much to my writing. Lately, the entries I've enjoyed writing the most were personal reflections on life, and that's more the direction I need to go, if I'm going to keep up any kind of a personal blog. The irony is, however, precisely that it is personal. I always imagine myself writing only to you, my friends, but the reality is, blogs are unflinchingly public, and my private thoughts aren't.

I'm not officially shutting down this blog, and if the mood strikes, I'll post. But it's not going to be regularly. I may start a new personal blog not tied to my real name.

Regardless, I'm going to miss you guys! Honestly, the main thing that has kept me posting for the last year or so has been you, my friends. I've appreciated your comments, and the friendships I've developed off-screen with many of you, one-on-one. I'm hoping this won't be the end of the line for us. I plan to keep commenting on your blogs, and I hope you'll stay in touch via email and fb. I really feel like I know some of you and I appreciate your support, insight, humor, and love.

In the meantime, there's still my "official" garden blog and my facebook page.

~Hugs, Monica
