I know today is Thursday and the doors I was going to feature are in my folder, but I just can’t do it.  They should have been done last night, but life has gotten too busy at the moment and when I realized this morning that I hadn’t gotten them into a post and that I don’t have time in the next few days to respond to comments or visit all the posts I want to see, I decided enough is enough.  Life has to be lived and work obligations met and especially in this season, I don’t want to be any more overwhelmed than need be.

So I’m taking a few days off, but leaving you with this shot from my Monday walk in the park.  It’s a sort of “light at the end of the tunnel” photo, in a place you’ve seen at least several times on the blog before, once with fog at the end, once with a deer and rabbit silhouetted halfway down.  Enjoy the beauty and the symbolism.  Take time to enjoy the season and I’ll see you soon.  Feel free to chat, as I’ll have a bit of time here and there to check and I’ll miss that.

  1. I completely relate. Have a wonderful Christmas season!

  2. Dan Antion says:

    I understand the feeling, Janet. I hope you either catch up or that things calm down. December can be a stressful time.

  3. I love that picture – just perfect for so many reason.
    Overwhelmed. Good to put a stop to that, too – especially when so much whirling to be seen, experienced, and enjoyed in real life.
    Fog and richness of winter are the perfect excuse to be MIA a bit – keeps burnout at bay and balance reestablished. May warmth, friend, and peace ship find your door always

  4. Sometimes, you just can’t force this blogging thing. You’ve gotta love it, and I definitely love it when I can tell your whole heart is in it. Good on you for taking time for life to keep that passion burning bright. Enjoy your time away from the screen!

    • Thanks very much, Hannah. I’ll enjoy the time off and look forward to being back. I love the Christmas season and don’t want to feel crunched by it instead of enjoying it. I’ll see you soon, I’m sure.

    Overwhelm is no good. I love how you take pictures of the same spot at different times. Very cool.

    Sometimes the best gift we can give ourselves is acknowledging that we don’t have to do it all.
    Best wishes!

  7. I like this photo a lot. The mystery at the end of the path is heightened by the bare tree trunks and gnarled branches.

    Enjoy the time off 🙂

  9. Blogging is suppose to be fun. Sometimes, to fully enjoy the moment, we require a break. So, grab a cup of tea and enjoy your time off. 🙂

  10. Nice one J. Life has to be lived as you say. Keep on living, but get back to us asap! Cheers. MB

    Looks darker at the end of the road in your image. LOL. Nice shot.

  12. Leya says:

    Love the shot – and your decision. A good one in order to enjoy coming back!

  13. Su Leslie says:

    Very Narnia!! Enjoy your break.

    We all get crazy busy sometimes, that’s just how it is. Look how late I am! I don’t miss any doors here at this post, for this winter view is delightful, and a steady reminder that as the earth rests, we need to as well 🙂 Please take good care of you through this hectic time. ❤

  15. Good for you, in taking a few days off. I completely understand about the doors sitting in a folder with no time to post. Happy holidays!

    • I’ve had to work so much that I just can’t take the time to do much other than housework/regular life things and getting ready for Christmas. But I will be back at some point. I just don’t want to post when I don’t have time to visit other bloggers. Doesn’t seem fair.

      Merry Christmas!
