Dragons, St George and other Bloggers



Paulo Uccello - St George and the Dragon c 1456
For Charles Dawson a real friend.

(and NO ...
I still don't know what was going on in the playground)




Also, Gimpy Mumpy, who is remembered with fondness.

As a serial bolter myself, I am hoping Charles' current disaffection with blogging will be temporary and that he will soon return refreshed. I also hope he continues to leave comments on the blogs of those who love and miss him. Noli nothis permittere te terere.

Here here. Having a rough patch myself as you know, but witnessing someone else's potential departure and the feelings it produces makes you think. However, I've read his post and I do agree with a lot of what he says. And your behind the scenes post also got me thinking. I'm just too fatigued to work out exactly what you were saying, but it struck a chord.

Thank you Lily, I too hope CD has not totally 'left the building' but his last post seems to indicate that it is so.

I hope you have your bolting tendency under control, and remember the option of just deleting posts you don't want around anymore.

This just feels like a time for taking stock for me. Reviewing what has passed and working on what is good in blogger land.

Seahorse, thank you for your helpful comments.

I know you are in rough place at the moment and am thinking of you, and I hope you feel there is connection and support in this arena, even though some areas of it may be negative.

Being aware, or rather, becoming aware, was a bit of a shock to my system, and I have felt a bit fragile while reviewing what little I knew. I feel better for knowing what to avoid for the future.

I still have little grasp on what you mean, but maybe it's better that way.

There was little to grasp, and that is where the dangers lurk, of making guesses or judging on little evidence.

So I have just taken note of what I read, applied my own laws of acceptable behaviour and judged on what was posted by others.
Therefore La B in my estimation behaved poorly. I had little else to go on, not being in the loop.

I feel disheartened, needing this arena to be supportive, in order to deal with the outside world more strongly. So, time out, for the time being.

Time out is a good thing, and sometimes blogging can get a little intense. I think it helps to remember that each disabled blogger sometimes carries with them their own pain, exhaustion, depression or just plain isolation that can influence what they write. It certainly happens with me. Take care you, and please don't duck out altogether.

Wise words, thank you.

"... caries with them their own pain ... that can influence what they write." Yes, but acting out and projecting harms others.

Outer events actually do harm, outer life has threatening aspects; here I do not want to be in contact with negativity.

This is not a comment intended at you Seahorse; its me explaining in my comments to myself what is necessary to me in blogging.

Another necessity is contact with the positive blogers, the beauty and friendship, wise words and hilarity, sharing their lives and experiences. It has just been a bit of a jolt to the system.

That's okay, just have a break and time to reflect
