Hazy Days

Though clarity sought
Things can still be hazy
Through times that are fraught
Not everyone’s crazy

The view may be clouded
Shaded
Blurred

But the horizon’s still there
Don’t be deterred

Picture This

Distant hills
And rolling clouds
Open plains
And lush green grasses
Clear running water
Gentle breezes
Deep blue skies
Animal masses
Harmonious atmosphere
Fabulous views
So much to cherish
Too much to lose.

Put your hands up, yeah. Put your hands up.

Enough of all that! I don’t know what made me start typing that in the first place anyway.

Moving on.

I’ve made a decision which will dramatically alter my blog somewhat. For a good few years I’ve been participating in various blogging challenges, and although they are inspiring and help to fill the time on some days when my inspiration for writing is a little low, they take me away from writing specifically for my blog, and I want to get back to that. On the other hand, whenever I set a challenge on my blog, in the hope of gaining connections, adding a little more fun and further inspiration to the Blogging Universe, they go down like lead balloons with hardly anybody taking up the challenge. Hardly worth coming up with them, when you see things that way. I know everyone’s busy, and I understand that, but it can feel a little disheartening when all I see is a blank sea of emptiness ahead of me.

Bit overdramatic, that.

It’s a nice, pleasant blank sea, with lovely emptiness and a nice warm breeze – and a lighthouse over there on the horizon. There’s always light. There has to be.

So. No more challenges from me, but I’m also stepping away from all of the challenges I currently undertake. I’ve enjoyed taking part in them over the past few years, and I thank everyone who has kindly set their challenges for me to take part in. The challenges can be a challenge in themselves!

From now in, I’m going back to being an Independent Blogger  (All the single bloggers (All the single blogg…) Don’t start that again).

There is one exception, however. I shall be taking part in World Watercolour Month, although quite probably not everyday. I do like to splosh a little colour around.

I’ve always said that if something feels too much, or it feels more like work than pleasure, or it starts to feel like a chore, I’ll just walk away, and I don’t want to do that with blogging. I do enjoy it, even if I may post the odd grumbling gripe every so often.

I’m not leaving the challenges completely, though. Oh no! I’ll link in with a post every now and again. I ain’t turnin’ my back on inspiration completely. I ain’t daft.

That’s the joy of being an Independent Blogger. As and when. That’s a motto I always use, and it works very well indeed.

See you shortly in Blogland!
