I began this blog a little more than three years ago - since then I have made much art and made many friends. I am so glad do many were dispersed over this beautiful earth - Australia, Japan, New Zealand, Holland and the UK. Upstate NY, Tejas, California and the Pacific Northwest.

I think I will stop blogging for now - I may return, but I need to focus on other things. My recent illness has given me time much to think and I see that I need to make some new healthier priorities.

I do want to thank all of you who have visited and left comments, many have become my friends - Kim, Sue, Lisa, Mick, JGY, Irene, Debi and others. Andrea, please call me when you come east. We all want to see you. I have missed you.

Two days ago there were four crocuses on my lawn, three purple and one yellow.

All my best. Peace.



Debi said...

I'm a saddened. Yet, your good health is paramount. I hope you are successful in your goal, in all your goals.

You might remember I went on a blogging hiatus myself a few years back, a time during which you kindly checked in on me regularly. I'll never forget that, and hope you don't mind a Texas friendly email now and then.

As you say, "All my best." And purely selfishly, I hope it works out that we see you here a.gain

Mick said...

Nuts! Now I have to move you to a new place on my sidebar.

Keep a bottle of Jameson's close at hand.


SusuPetal said...

Only for now, then you'll come back, ok?

All the best from Finland.

Debi said...

OH! I also meant to say that one.crocus.heart is really, really lovely. One of your best. Really.

Sue O'Kieffe said...

I hope this is just a vacation and that you'll be back when you feel better. It's important to take care of your health and keep your priorities straight.

Vaya con dios

I second and third the sentiments above, both in the comments and in your post. I completely understand the need to take a rest. Blogging is wonderful but it does take up a chunk of energy. I think of stopping too but then I realize it also gives me energy at the same time. Maybe after 3 years though is a perfect occasion to stop for a while...and to take care of your health and maybe get to nature more than technology.

When I tell my daughter I am going to stop blogging she says, but mom, you love it, and I say that's true, and she reminds me that doing the things we love are healthy for us.
So I hope you find and make some time to do some of the other things you love, and don't forget to come back and tell us about them:)))
take care, be well

Hey John, sometimes we reach momentous stages in our lives when we make important decisions and that is good. It is kind of liberating. Whatever you do next, do it well and enjoy yourself. You will not be easily forgotten and I will not remove you from my blog list. Maybe you will return in another incarnation. I can't wait. Hugs!

Lucky Dip Lisa said...

Oh. Well in total selfishness I have to say that your resignation is not accepted. Sorry, but no can do. No way. Not gonna happen.

Oh man, I am really going to miss you. You're my chicken thigh man. A fellow bird fan with an appreciation for light and life uniquely expressed with bb photography and electronic quilts...yes, you will be missed.

I didn't see that coming. I hope you will be back when the time is right and that that time isn't too far away.

Here's to health and better priorities. And chicken jokes.


The Artful Eye said...

Your health is so important and I do hope you're making good improvements.

So glad we all had a chance to meet.
You can bet I will call and come by to visit the Mora clan. Pizza, beach and birds too! You have my number I'll send you and Marie more info. as things progress and change.

Get well soon! Hugs, Peace Andrea

Frances said...

sorry to have missed all this. sorry you will not be posting - glad you are going to take care of yourself. I will be coming back and looking at your lovely stuff and hope you will get back in the saddle at a later time. I still haven't and it is sometimes hard to come back to active blogging.
Love and hugs and thank you for all the joy and interest you have given with your artwork.

Sue O'Kieffe said...

Heard Bon Iver today and thought of you. Hope you are feeling better and the birds are singing in your backyard.

Leslie Avon Miller said...

I think of you when ever I get a good bird sighting. And will continue to do so. All the best John. I hope you have total healing and joyful times.

Lucky Dip Lisa said...

I'm happy to have heared ICE clink on the glass.! Hope your are well:)

Miss you, John. What's up? Talk to me.
