I want to wait for the new beginnings and for resolution.

No. Don't wait, something inside me says. Go deeper. Go beyond false hope.

Unresolved is all there ever is.


I need to be on a blogfast again for a couple of weeks. The new carpet is being fitted on Saturday 16th and all the "messy" work has to be completed before then. And in spite of all the chucking out and titivating that has been accomplished there remains an alarming amount to be done before the "For Sale" sign goes up in the last week of September.

I'm glad I came back but methinks the blog is going to be an on again/off again experience for a while.

This is such a strange time and I am so grateful to my little blogging community here.

Mary, I've just caught up with your re-emergence and now you're taking time out again! Bummer. Still, if the quality of these new posts is an indication, the wait will be worth it. They're gorgeous: wise, moving, and beautiful. Sad at times, too — I'm not aware of the details but know the emotions — but I'm encouraged by your attitude, your willingness to listen to your intuitions.

Kia kaha, kia manawanui, e hoa.

Good Luck with all you have to do. Moving is very stressful so take care. We'll all be here waiting for you, so bop in or let a post fly whenever the spirit moves you.

This is going to stick with me for a while...for some reason, i think i needed this message. It is an ever expanding universe so the last line makes sense.

I love that first part.

Take the time you need. We'll be here. It's just nice to have you back at least once in a while!

And Pete's right.

oh yes, unresolved is all there ever is...after all isn't life a process? it is never finished, always a continuum, constant motion, always a dance.

you can surface in and out of our lives at will. we are here. :)

Mary, I think I've wasted 2/3 of my life waiting for new beginnings and resolutions. The past 3 months I've been consciously catching that thought and stomping on it. It's made for a lot of tumult in my life but I'm really glad of it. Beginning my new life tomorrow is something I could do for the rest of my life, easy :-)

As for the blogging -- come and go as you please. Always so happy to see you. But you don't owe us, or anyone else, a continual presence!

Life is a matter of change... We have to bend a bit and adapt a bit and continue to find joy and hope as it comes to us...
You will be much in our thoughts

Boy. That's a hard one to accept isn't it?

But thanks for the reminder.

Good luck M!

Strange time for me too, Mary. Knowing that you (and others!) are going through similar things has been such a help to me in recent months. I hope the same is true for you. I'd like to have had more opportunity to be in touch. Happy to say I've got internet at home as of today, although "at home" doesn't quite describe how I'm feeling here as yet.

It's a huge job to prep a place for sale, isn't it? And then try to keep it looking perfect until the right buyer comes along? Keep going! It'll all work out!

Une grande leçon !
Merci pour ces belles pensées !
On a besoin de lire des résolutions comme celle ci dans un monde d'aujourd'hui où la facilité règne partout !
Encore merci .

Mary: Best of luck with the move and all that entails, which is a lot! Take the time you need and we'll be here. And I'll be late in reading - since the new job started I'm very slow to read posts (and really very happy for slow posters!) and also rarely have time to post myself.

Blogger Mary said...

Leslee: Thanks so much for the comment here and below. And thank you for the reassurance that infrequent posting can be good for some readers! I feel ridiculously guilty when my posts slacken off and when I can't comment frequently elsewhere and have to try and get it into my head that there are NO RULES in blogging .....

That's a poem, at the beginning. It caught me when I first read it, and so I mulled, as usual reading posts, and waited before returning to read again.

I think my problem with wanting to know the drift of things is that I've been hit blindside perhaps too many times and so wait for some sort of resolution before proceeding.

Learning to be in the unresolved, ah, Mary, yes... thank you for this beautiful entry.

And we're grateful to you. You are a light whenever you appear. Know that.

Brenda, thank you for reading those few lines as a poem ..... and me too I wait for resolutions. The blindsides are not fun. But ..... I feel I've been waiting too long.

Patry: Thank you. Just thank you.
