stairs

listen for  her voice

spring blossoms leave too soon

dusty memory

I went to a blogger’s site this week and she was gone. There was a sadness I felt because I enjoyed her work. So often we cross paths with people and we never get the chance to say “goodbye.”

To each of you in the blog world: Your words touch me and others – for that I am grateful!!!

Here are some A to Z folks with words to enjoy this day:

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we have an exciting project. We are developing elementary curriculum for Ugandan children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. Along with the curriculum, we hope to develop simple fictions about Uganda for the children to read at school. Trust me books are in short supply. We will use our trusted story tellers: a butterfly and a lion to make the stories come alive. Stay tuned as Bethany and Me put pen to paper. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2012 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the (quiet) originator of the idea and co-producer of One Stop Poetry. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. It is interesting how we can feel another’s presence, without ever having met the person f2f. And the contrary is true, also. The absence of a connection leaves a hole. Yes, the hole will be filled with other presences, other diversions, but questions and concerns will linger for years.

  2. Aw, that is sad. But definitely gives me something to think about regarding the online community. Nice to meet you via the A-Z challenge!

  3. That has happened to me a couple of times. Once a poet’s site remained but she disappeared, and my last email from her had been frantic, so it really caused me concern. We do make strong connections online, every bit as meaningful – and sometimes even closer – than our real-time people. I hope she is okay. Sometimes people just shut down their blogs for a time, to take a rest. It is time-consuming. But I cant imagine my life without it.

  4. I know what you mean. We grow close to one another through through blogging, but I believe we grow especially close to each other during the A to Z challenge and I’ve grown very fond of many bloggers. There have been a few that I’ve started looking forward to reading and then poof their blogs disappear. It’s kind of jolt to your system after reading someone everyday for a while. You’re right, a sadness does come over you. You’re haiku expresses the feeling, perfectly.

    Thank you for sharing the blogs that you’ve connected with during the challenge. That’s a brilliant idea.

"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" - George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their tabloid news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting - this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell
