Last Post

This will be my last post as I'm giving up blogging to pursue other creative outlets.  Perhaps I'll get serious about that comic caper I've always been wanting to write.  Maybe I'll dig out my old manuscript and attempt to make it more palatable for publishers.  Or maybe I'll start a career in Graphic Design.  Or . . . I might start my own home-made soap business.  Or maybe I'll become an organic gardener, and buy a hobby farm and sell 20 different varieties of garlic at the local market.  Or maybe I'll buy a loom and some angora goats and weave my own clothing while living in a log cabin in the forest with only a wood stove and a wine fridge.  You see, the possibilities are endless...

So, for my last post, I want to share with you an old poem that occasionally still makes it's rounds on the email circuit so I'm sure you are all familiar with it.  Still...  I love it and think it's a fitting final piece for a blog that that was all about sharing joys.

Farewell friends!

  1. Desiderata! It is one of my favourites! You will be missed.

    Perhaps you will come back one day? xxxx

  2. Best wishes Kara! I will miss your well written posts. I know you will do well in whatever you pursue. I'll keep your blog on my feed just in case you post again. It's been wonderful knowing you.

    Let me know when you publish... I'd love to read your work!!!

  3. I've never read that poem before; thanks for sharing it.

    I hope you enjoy whatever you put your hand to next. It's been lovely to be able to take part in this hobby with you.

    Good luck and best wishes.

  4. I admire what you're gonna do; but at the same time will miss you. Best of luck with whatever you decide to do.

    Please pop by and let me know what you're up to from time to time.

  5. Desiderata is one of my faves as well. I have a small poster of it up in my office.

    Best wishes to you, Kara! :)

  6. Dear Kara,
    I'm sorry that you're retiring the blog. I've really enjoyed your posts.

    Good luck in whatever endeavor you should pursue.

    It's been my pleasure to have corresponded with you.

    And, if you do end up farming and selling 20 different varieties of garlic at a market in the Antler River area, let me know. I'd love to visit and to buy some of your wares.

    1. Do not be surprised if I take you up on that offer!

  7. A Most excellent piece to be sure!
    Farewell, I have very much enjoyed the joy that you have shared! I am sure you will enjoy and do well at whatever adventure is next! Be it soap, goats or wine making. Although I don't recommend combining the 3 necessarily. take care!

  8. OH NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! I took a break and now you're gone, gone, gone. Well not gone. Just not on the computer. You're here, or rather there. . just organic gardening whilst graphic designing in your soap making room while reading poetry. Ufff. Well, I totes agree. As with everything, a break is good. I'll be waiting if ever you decide to come back. I'll be waiting on you best seller to come out.

  9. Aw no! Gutted. I can't believe I won't get to read any more of your posts. Such a shame Kara, and I'll miss you. Please continue to stop by and let me know what you are up to .... and hopefully one day you will change your mind and come back.

    Best of luck my friend.

  10. We'll miss you Kara. Good luck with whatever you decide to do. And if you get the urge to blog again, I hope you'll let me know. Best regards, Susan
