My apologies for the old posts showing up as new. I was making some of them live again, and well, because I either corrected a typo or deleted an obsolete link, Blogger decided to make them new posts instead of posting them in chronological order, which would have put them in 2003.

So no, you didn't fall through a time warp.

I'm also sorry for those of you who are on feeds and thought there may have been a new post when there wasn't. I did have a nice post about taking up figure skating. However, Blogger ate it when I was using the "undo" function. It was a nice long post, too. With pictures. However, like most of my posts lately, they take way too long to write and languish in the "Draft" stage for way too long.

Perhaps I'll start a new blog about that endeavor, as it's been an a wonderful experience. I think I just figured out why it's been so hard to post on this one. I feel that it's loaded with so much baggage, and when I write, I honestly can feel the weight of it. I started blogging in 2001, but started this blog in 2002. It is a literal, that word actually is used correctly here, connection to things from those years. There is a lot that while I know is valid part of my odd journey, that it just isn't where I am anymore. I also have changed a lot when it comes to perspective, handling things, what I consider successes and things that need to be in the past. There is a lot to mine from this blog as far as my take on this thing called life, and I'm going to do that.

I guess in deleting that post, Blogger was trying to tell me something. That my work may be done here. Not on blogging, but on Anne...straight from the hip. And, that the piece I was writing didn't belong here.

If I do decide to create another blog, I'll link to it from here.

Anne, please post more, whether here or elsewhere. I've been reading your blog for years and in a very weird way started to feel I know you. Of course that's a bit daft as we've never had any sort of direct communication, much less met (I'm on the other side of the pond), but the death of another long time blogger I've read for what must be nearly 20 years (http://www.ttgnet.com/journal/2018/01/21/sun-jan-21-2018-nick-opening/) reminded me of your post.
I haven't been on the same journey as you, but some parts rhyme. You've moved on from the reason you started the blog, and the people who started reading your blog have moved on with their lives too. It doesn't mean we're no longer interested, it just means we're in a different place.
Please, blog more.

I found you in my link lists from 2005 to 2008 in the WayBack Machine. And now I've found you again. Different times, different us but .... waaahhhhh please do not stop sharing the Anne we knew and loved and would love to reconnect with.

The WayBack Machine is like the Hotel California, you can never really check out Anne.
Best wishes for Anne ..... back to the ..... TY

Hi Anne...

I like what you wrote in this post and I think London Calling's comment is 'spot-on'. Anyway... I look forward to keeping up with your journey even if it takes the form of a new blog.

i've followed your blog off and on since some of the early times in maryland (baltimore proper, i believe) and thought i'd just say that i wish you well wherever the wind carries you. i think blogger must've featured you at some point because there are very few blogs i poke around on that don't belong to a personal friend. i do hope life is treating you well and that your creative side is being fed (even if that isn't realized with words). i also hope your cats are well...i may dig around some of your archive for that news. :) all the best!
