"The desert and the parched land will be glad;
the wilderness will rejoice and blossum.
Like the crocus, it will burst into bloom:
it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy."

Isaiah 35:1-2

This bible verse has played a significant part in my life in the past and most recently I encountered it twice in the same day. Certainly as far as my writing and blogging has been concerned there has been a significant drought. I was led to blogspot a couple of days ago and was amazed to see it had been 2 years since I last posted or wrote anything or had read any of the blogs I follow. Apologies for my lack of response to your comments.

Life took a dramatic turn for me at that time with the breakup of my marriage and subsequent return to work and there has been little physical or emotional space for many of the creative things I enjoy. I have been frantically treading water for quite some time but now feel a shift and am able to float more calmly on the surface. I hope to be able to return to my writing in some small way over the next few months.

This thought for the day is from a fellow bloggers post but I have pinched it as it sums up perfectly what I need to express at the present time.

"Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets.
So, love people who treat you right, forgive the ones who don't and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said it'd be easy, they just promised it'd be worth it." (unknown)
