Prose Interlude.

There comes a time when we simply need to return to our life and give it our undivided attention.

For me that time is now.

My writing here endlessly reflects my frank thoughts and my genuine state of mind, as that is the only way I know how to write.
Occasionally though, I realize that I can not continue doing that and concurrently hold back so much of the whole truth. However candid I might come across here, there are still parts of my reality that need to be kept private, until I am ready to share them publicly.

Rather than be torn between writing that is unsubstantial, superficial and forced and the strong urge to disclose it all, I have decided to take a writing interlude.
I am looking forward to focus completely on the changes that are taking place in my reality and when the time is right, I will return to this beautiful world of candid prose, abundant with my personal reflections.

See you soon dear friends.

Life is beautiful. Take care.

Lynne said...

I quite understand what you are saying Zuzana. I will miss you, but wish you well and hope that those changes aren't too demanding of you.
What lovely photos from your last post.

Elizabeth said...

Life is beautiful despite everything. Like in 'all the small things' you will be fine too. Just know that you are welcome on my doorstep.

Dan said...

Hi Zuzana
I totally understand where you are coming from with this post, it can be difficult to decide what to reveal and what to leave out, and your need to focus on life in the 'real world'.
I hope you don't stay away too long - I'll miss you!

Have a good break, Zuzana. I, for one, will miss you.

Sumandebray said...

It s a time of multi tasking ... but since you have decided to take a break. I wish you the very best and hope you will make the most of it though we will miss your posts.

Best Wishes for all thats happening and shall meet you on the other side of your break

LadyCat said...

Take the time you need for yourself, that is very important. I understand what you are saying about our blogs. I post almost none of my poetry because some read too much into it and know me too well. I, too keep my blog "light" for that reason. So I know what you mean about it sometimes feeling superficial.
Enjoy some time spent in the summer breezes and by the beautiful ocean. And take care of you...you deserve it : )

ladyfi said...

Oh, how I shall miss you.

Enjoy the beautiful reality of your life right now...

Brian Miller said...

Julie Hibbard said...

You are such a joy to read each day, I am, like the others, going to miss your heart-filled passion and gorgeous photographs and thought-provoking wisdom.
I wish you lived closer. I have a feeling you and I are in similar seasons of life right now.
Time for change.
I wish you light and love and peace, my friend.

Margie said...

I wish you joy!

I wish you love (may it always surround you wherever you may be!)

Take good care, my friend!

It is always wise, to do, what we know we need to do.

I wish I could wrap you in much love, and many gentle hugs, for your 'journey.' Be well. Figure things out. Come back, when you know it is the right time to do so.

Meanwhile, we will miss you. And continue to send good wishes/thoughts your way.

Gentle hugs,
'Aunt Amelia'

I most definitely understand the need to take a break from time to time. I do hope you aren't gone long and that you don't forget about us.

And whatever's happening in your life right now, I hope it's all positive!

I shall miss you.

NOOOOOOOO. Not now!!!! I look forward to your prose, the way you express what you see and what you feel. It is so different and so soothing.
I wish you the best and I hope really hope you come back soon

Ann Nichols said...

I so understand exactly what you mean! I have diminished to posting only once a week... just isn't time enough to do more what with work (which is writing for me!)and home and well, life! I hope this is a wonderful time for you, a time to refresh your batteries and write that which you need to write!
Many blessings to you and Batcat!
Hugs,
Ann
PS I will be so happy to see you online again...whenever that might be! :)

SandyCarlson said...

Be well. We will be here for you!

steviewren said...

I hope things will work out well for you. I'll miss your beautiful diary of the flora and fauna of Denmark while you are away. Take good care of yourself.

Amanda said...

dear zuzana,

this is a very wise and inspired decision. sometimes blogging or sharing so much with others can be energizing, sometimes draining. if the latter, then it's definitely a good idea to take time away for yourself, spent in meditation, reading a good book, going into nature.

blessings to you as you focus on the changes taking place in your life. may your days be filled with love, joy and peace.

with love,

amanda

Mimi said...

((hugs)) and friendly thoughts go to you in the meantime.
I will miss you, dear Zuzana, but I do understand, and, as alwasy, you put it so eloquently.
Here's a little quote I came across on another blog that you might like, while you're on break "each day comes bearing its own blessings; untie the ribbons".
Enjoy each day, dear friend.

Joanna Jenkins said...

You will be missed but I totally understand about how hard it is to edit yourself when you write. I hope things in your life turn out exactly the way you'd like them to. I'll keep you on my sidebar so I know when you return. Take your time. I'm cheering you on. xo jj

Michael Manning said...

Lovers of Life must also take time away to replentish their energy and I look forward to your return, Zuzana, when you are ready to write again. Until then, take good care and hope you pamper yourself!!! lol!

Kat_RN said...

I hope that all is well and that you are finding joy. Take your break my friend, we will be here when you return.

gaelikaa said...

I look forward to your returning to posting Zuzana. I can understand your need to write yet your need to maintain your privacy. I often have a conflict with myself about how much I should share of myself on my blog. That's probably why I do so many meme posts.

Donna said...

I'll miss you. Take care.

Hugs,
Donna

Doreen said...

Gal Friday said...

This is going to sound selfish, but I am having some serious "Life Through Reflections" withdrawal and cannot wait until you are back and writing blogs again.
Hope all is well and that the Danish spring is treating you well, Zuzanna.

Take care Zuzana. Come back soon!!!

Zuzana,
You are such a beautiful soul and profound writer. I will miss you, but welcome you back when you are ready. Everyone needs a sabbatical at times. My life has been so busy and I find myself so weary, that I haven't had the time to write or visit blog friends as much as I would like. Sometimes I feel that my life is under seige--the tyranny of the urgent, but am not achieving or experiencing what I feel my purpose is. Does that make sense? Anyway, I hope you return refreshed and energized at the right time.
Fondly,
V

Out on the prairie said...

I don't just sit and write. I get the "urge"and start with a few notes that expands to many thoughts and becomes reality.

Rustique Gal said...

Zuzana, though I'll miss you I totally understand the need for a break. Please have a wonderful time and as the Buddha says, "suffer what there is to suffer, enjoy what there is to enjoy." You will be refreshed.
Hugs, Dear Friend,
Sherry

Hey sweetie, I just wanted to let ya know that I'm havin' a Happy Easter Giveaway over at my place and just wanted you to have the opportunity to enter.

The jewelry is fantastic!

God bless and have a great Easter! :o)

Nessa said...

Enjoy your break. I for one certainly understand the need for them.

Holly said...

You are so loved!! I do love your writing and think that you have a gift for expressing yourself in a way that touches people. A way that helps us feel a connection to you. But, I do understand your need to take the time to reflect on personal matters. I think you are brave, and wise. Times like these are the times that make your writing even more thoughtful and deep. We will all be here when you return.

p.s. I was so overjoyed to see the necklace that I made you on your header!

P.P.s. :) I love your new profile picture!!

Radka said...

Ahoj Zuzko, jak pak se máš?? My se máme dobře. Ve středu jsem byla s Matýskem u zápisu ve školce, tak doufám, že ho od září vezmou. V České republice je málo školek a dětí hodně. Přeji ti hezké Velikonoce. Ahoj Radka a Matýsek.

Titane333 said...

Take your time Zuzanna to come back in great shape. I'll miss you, good road to you! XOXO

Betsy said...

Miss you!

Happy Easter, dear. xo

Myrna R. said...

Don't know if it's too late, but I just returned from my absence in my blog. I'm sad for myself that you'll be gone for a while. I'll miss you.

Take care and good luck with your life and your introspection. When you return, I'll be happy to read as much as you want to share.

Zuzana said...

Thank you my dear friends for taking the time to stop by in my absence. Thank you for all your kindness and words of comfort and for expressing so eloquently and with such a substance your beautiful and caring sentiments.
You all mean the world to me.
Xoxo
Zuzana
