And once more...

I seem to say it a lot, but I am back!

I have logged in for 4 days on the trot and set some new goals, defined a workout regime etc.... it really feels like I am home again!

What is different?

This time I spent some time actually looking around, rather than just checking on my personal areas. Visiting the pages of some old friends, I discovered that one of my best spark buddies had passed on. I was not surprised by the news. I knew of her illness from the first diagnosis and had walked much of her journey with her. Quite some time ago she had ceased sending personal emails and I was on her mailing list for updates as to her condition. I noted quite some time ago that I had not had an update for quite a while and wondered had her time come, especially when I tried to mail and firstly recieved no reply then on sending a second recieved an error message that the email no longer existed but to learn that she had gone shook me in a way I couldn't expect. We share such intimate parts of our life journey here that the relationships we forge become very deep.

So my motivation this time is my dear friend Flo and the others who have shared this journey with me. Staying away left me out of touch with so many people who have brought joy, love and inspiration along the way and I look forward to getting back in touch with as many as possible.

Renewed, invigorated and feeling at peace with the world.
