Thailand...


I have really fallen down on the job here. At this site.

I can't remember the last time I wrote anything significant, anything idea-based or anything that is enriching or fulfilling for the people who come to read. It seems this site is barely worth the page load, let alone reading it.

This isn't going to be forever and it's not a permanent change. The site itself is designed for something specific and I just haven't had it to give for the past several weeks. I'm hollow and empty, understimulated, so consequently that is what is reflecting here.

I miss the interaction we had for so long, the exchange of ideas. And promise to bring it back.

Soon.

Next week, I am leaving for Thailand for almost eleven days. When I get back refreshed and renewed, I will have something to say.

So.. this.. an open plea. Stick with me just a bit longer.

You are doing well...and yes, we are still with you!

Wow, Thailand, Chani is coming!!! ;)

I'm also wanting to visit Thailand again...especially the hilltribe hillers in the northern part...I hope to do that this year.

We'll wait for your return...and we'd love to hear from your vacation!

I've been having the same problem. In fact, it seems to be a bit of an epidemic. I wish I could go on sabbatical to revive my spirit. I'm just a little envious, but how wonderful for you! I hope you have a fabulous time.

Carla said...

I am so excited that you are off to Thailand. Have a wonderful time. I look forward to hearing all about it when you get back.

Of course, Silly. You don't have to post something earthshaking every day. No one else does, either.

I am also feeling a bit understimulated, but hope to feel inspired soon. (Of course, I'll have to do it without a glorious visit to Thailand, so you see - it could be worse.)

Just enjoy your anticipation of this wonderful trip, and be prepared to spill all when you return. We'll be waiting.

Oh Chani - I hope this visit really fills your cup ~ and you come back refreshed and revived. I will be here, waiting, that is for sure!

Rima said...

Chani, I have no plans to leave! A very wise woman once told me you should blog when you want to about the things that you want to blog about, and the rest will follow.

I hope that your trip to Thailand is everything you want it to be. I can't wait to hear about your impressions!

Sober Briquette said...

Oh wow. It's so exciting. I can't wait to hear all about it.

You're too hard on yourself- we don't demand that every thought be a deep one. You should take a look at the crap I post (unapologetically!) on my site!

Have a great time overseas! And remember:

I'm so glad you're going back to Thailand for some breathing room! Breathe deep and enjoy. The blog and your readers will be here when you return. Everyone needs a break now and then.

newduck said...

I'm certainly going to hang in there - I like what you write! Have fun in Thailand - I absolutely can't wait to go back.

lunarmusings said...

I think that our blogging rhythm goes in waves... totally normal! Can't wait to you get back from your trip so we can hear all about it!

Thailand! That's so great. I'm happy for you. All us bloggers go up and down in energy for blogging. My own blog has periods of frenetic discussion and other periods where I think I'm talking to the wall and why even bother posting vs just writing in Microsoft Word. Actually, that's where I am now. You don't owe us anything Chani. Just be.

SUEB0B said...

Chani, just be yourself. That is good enough.

Enjoy Thailand!

anne said...

Enjoy your trip! Looking forward to reading all about it when you get back.

Anvilcloud said...

I'd rather hear about you than about your ideas. I'm just sayin.

Have a great trip.

hele said...

I enjoy everything you write. Together it adds up to knowing you in all your humanness.

Have a wonderful time and take care.

Apologies aren’t necessary. We bloggers understand—really we do.

slouching mom said...

Oh, Chani!

Thailand!

Fantastic.

JCK said...

We're here. Don't be so hard on yourself. Have a fantastic voyage!

Amy Y said...

Good for you!! Have a wonderful time...
You are worth the wait :)

Hello I just entered before I have to leave to the airport, it's been very nice to meet you, if you want here is the site I told you about where I type some stuff and make good money (I work from home): here it is

thailandchani said...

Barb, how dare you come to my site and take a big crap all over these lovely comments?

I don't often call up my sys admin skills but I have traced your IP and will report you to your ISP. I am going to follow up on this until you lose your account.

How DARE you? You creep!

People like you disgust me!

Get lost!

Thailand will surely fill you heart and soul with so much inspiration.

Have a wonderful time and a safe trip, Chani!
