a note of thanks

I am somewhat shocked to discover that I have reached 750 followers, including just over 600 from WordPress alone.

I am immensely grateful to all followers, readers, and commenters who are visiting Top of JC’s Mind these days as I continue my less-than-ideal blogging practice.

When Grandma died unexpectedly in March, I knew there would be some disruption in my usual routine of posting and visiting/commenting on other blogs, but I couldn’t know at the time how draining the aftermath of that loss would be or how many other losses, changes, and complications would ensue.

The current state of affairs in the world hasn’t helped.

I have struggled to get back to posting on a somewhat regular basis. I am doing almost no reading and commenting still, which feels odd. It isn’t that I can’t come up with the time; it’s more that I can’t muster the brainpower and concentration.

I thank you for your patience and understanding. I have given up projecting when I may be back to visiting you all and re-engaging.

Some of you have assured me that it is okay to take my time, to do what I need to do, that everything will work out eventually.

Please continue to save a little room for me in a corner of WordPress.

Someday, I’ll be dropping back in.

    1. Also, I just clicked follow for you because it said I wasn’t following you on my list. Then I realized that I was following Butterfly Sand, but not your prior blog, which is still where I get directed if I click on your name.

        1. Hmmm. Try this. Click on your photo up in the right hand corner when you are logged in. It should bring you to your profile. Click on Account Settings in the menu on the left. I think if you change your primary account setting to Butterfly Sand, it will bring people there when they click on your name or photo.


  1. Hi Joanne, don’t worry about us. We’ll be waiting for you and sending lots of healing energy. I have taken many times of blogging because there was so much turmoil in my life. Life just doesn’t play ball and we have to roll with it ;-). Just promise to take good care of yourself and be gentle with yourself. In my experience that helps the best to get through anything life throws at us.

    1. Thanks so much, Bee, for your understanding and your wisdom. I am taking care of myself as best I can while trying to help my loved ones. Writing does help, although it is a slower process than usual.
