Dual Purpose Post

Words for Wednesday is a moveable feast.  A big thank you to everyone who has stepped up and provided the prompts to keep it going.
 
At the moment it looks like this.
 

January 2017:  Granny Annie provided the prompts, and they were excellent and got some new people playing - which is lovely.

February 2017:  We are coming full circle and Delores will post the prompts on her blog. 

March 2017:  River is providing the prompts on her blog.

April 2017:  Lee has joined us in providing the prompts.  They will appear on her blog.

May 2017:  I will be providing the prompts here.

June 2017:  The prompts will be here again, but provided by Margaret Adamson and her friend Sue Fulton.  Her prompts will include photographs taken by her friend Bill.

Thank you one and all.  Margaret and Sue have generously provided me with sufficient prompts for two months, but as always I am hunting for more people to contribute.  If you are able to do so, please leave a note in the comments, suggesting which month you are able to provide prompts.

The other issue is less positive.  I am feeling physically, emotionally and mentally sore, tired and overwhelmed and have decided to take a break.  I will be back in March, if not before.  I will miss you, but need to find some equilibrium again.  Take care of your important selves and have fun.

  1. Understand the need for a break! I took a mini one this weekend and it was wonderful. Rest and do whatever it takes to rebound, but I will miss your glorious Sunday photos.

  3. I've heard a few people say they are drained at the moment. One wondered if there's a tiredness virus going around. Take care and look forward to your return in March.

  4. Take care of yourself, too. I've just finished my Friday post (early!) and that's what it's about - taking care of ourselves. I hope your rest is just the thing to help you. I don't think it can hurt, in any case. We will be here when you feel up to coming back. Hugs, good friend.

  28. Thank you, EC.

    Take good care of yourself (that seems such a redundant statement because I know you will and are). The heat certainly isn't doing you any favours.

  31. Sending good energy your direction. I think there is a general tiredness going around, it might just be the state of the world in general, things seem to be spiraling out of control and it just wears us all down. But after rest comes rejuvenation and then we're ready to be active again. Come back soon!

  40. We'll miss you, I'll miss you, but you do what you need to. Most of us understand what it's like to need a break. Take care and cuddle Jazz as much as he will allow, let the SP look after you for a while. Soak in some sunsets and bask in your garden.

  65. sorry I have been incognito for too long a while but the low down doldrums have forsaken and fore-taken my psyche for much too much time. I truly hope all is well with you because you are one of a few folks who give hope to so so many others of my kind, known or unknown.
