We Were On A Break! Welcome Back Donna Parker

“Don’t panic!” said Douglas Adams, and I’m echoing his words from the Hitchhiker’s Guide. I had to have a break (after a couple of extra-draining workweeks and an altercation with a stomach virus). Thistledown will be back next weekend.

Meanwhile I’m sharing a couple of beauties with you. Later this weekend I have a special announcement from fellow blogger and author, John W. Howell.

Now… OMG, look who’s back! I was so happy to see Donna Parker in the bloggosphere again. Then you should have seen my face when I saw she gave a shout out to “Murder at the Bijou – Three Ingredients 1”
Please click over and visit Yadadarcyyada. Browse around her fabulous, inimitable blog, and say hello.
Hugs on the wing!


https://yadadarcyyada.com/2017/09/28/we-were-on-a-break/Something has changed within me
Somehow I’m not the same
I’m tired of playing
someone else’s game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to press stop
(oops, I hit Publish!)
Time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes and leap!
Some things I cannot change
But till I try, I’ll never know!
I’m sick of denying gravity, now…
I’m defying gravity!
Even by getting up in the morning…I’m defying gravity!
Yo, I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want. I wanna—, I wanna—, I wanna stop hearing ‘want’ instead of ‘need’.
So I have a problem, something I have to face…
To move ahead at a more novel pace.https://yadadarcyyada.com/2017/09/28/we-were-on-a-break/
We need to not believe everything we read and not only read everything we believe. My fondness wish? That we hit pause, stop fighting about who’s right and who’s wrong. Simple, the facts are right; what if we’re…

  1. Teagan, once again you astound me, no feeling well, rough time at work, instead of complaining, there you are helping out fellow bloggers. Thank you, you really are too kind. Big hugs (can’t catch anything that way lol). Hope the next few weeks are much better. Still more hugs. Thank you. xoxox

    1. Hi Donna. I was so excited to be featured in your post — of course I had to share it. 😀 Thank you again.
      I hope all is well in your world.
      The tummy virus left as suddenly as it came. However, October (and half of November too) is the most difficult time of year. It’s triple toxicity in what is already a culture of blame… There aren’t enough buses in the city for everyone who will be thrown under one. So I will… huh…I don’t know what I’ll do. But I’ll try and survive.
      Huge hugs right back. ❤

    1. Thank you Gerlinde. I admit that it’s frustrating to have the stories in my head, but be too drained to type them out…
      However, when I saw this post from Donna (whose blog is so wonderful) and John Howell’s launch (which I’ll share tomorrow) — I realized it was a good weekend to support others and give myself a few hours off.
      Hugs on the wing!


    1. LOL. Low battery juice does seem to be going around, Olga. If I didn’t stress, I’d be fine. But you know that I’m just not good at not stressing. 😀 However, this weekend I’m trying my best. It’s so kind of you to visit and encourage me. Hugs.
