The blank space

Dear Friends

Like the closed down (but still creative) shop window of Top Shop I saw on an early morning walk recently, I need to create some blank space and step back from blogging here for a while.

Think of it as a holiday, a rest, a weekend off. I am not quitting or leaving forever.

I just need to give some time to the projects that have started gleaming at me from the corner of my eye.

Plus I am still in mourning.

If you are new to this blog, there are plenty of things to stumble across in my archives – like this series of Year of Living Deeply posts I had completely forgotten about. Or the ever-amazing (even if I say so myself) Lifesaving Poems series. What gems are hidden there!

Or you could click on my Books page and buy some of them. Just a hint. (Not all of you, just some of you would be nice. Arf, wink emoji, etc.)

I continue to be grateful for and amazed by your support.

But for now I need to stare into some (non-screen-related) blank space for a bit. I know you understand.

With love and best wishes to all of you



  1. I’m interpreting (part of) this post as uplifting news – the fact that you have wind in your sails. Maybe some of us can use this moment as a spur to “do something” interesting before you get back to blogging again – I have my own website to rebuild after my host lost the entire site and the backups during a business take-over, a site that I had worked on for 13 years! I’m a physicist and don’t believe in magic but there is nothing more magical than creating something from nothing on a blank page using only your imagination and experience; enjoy the process/journey/battle!

  2. I’ve only just started to stumble across your archives and enjoying the experience. So thank you for that. I hope you find the time away useful. As a Zen loving friend of mine often says, “Take more time to cover less ground”.

    God bless you loads
