A posy of Roses
I have been incredibly touched by all your responses to my last post. Quite blown away in fact, and a little teary if i'm being totally honest. I sit at a desk and type away...thoughts......makes......then I press 'publish', and probably walk away to go make supper and not think about it again. I don't think about how it pops up in someones feed, or email......or that someone might just stumble across it and go through a years worth of postings. I guess I think of it as closing my diary and putting it back in a drawer until it's time to write in it again. I forget that it's a book that many can pick up and keep dipping back into whenever they please.
Although, I have not replied to any comments (would sort have defeated the whole object of getting away from it all for a bit!), I did read, each and every single word, both from your comments below and your private emails.
I felt comforted by the fact that so many of you got me......that so many of you felt the same or had felt it at some point. Yes, it was hugely comforting.
It was lovely to have a very simple summer. I needed it. Boy, it made me realise just HOW much I needed it.
I had a lot of 'quiet' time. It was fab. Just thinking about what I love, what I want more of, what I want less off.
I guess it's all been culminating over the past couple of years if I really think about it. Starting a new decade soon, I wanted to make sure that I started it the way I wanted it to carry on. I wanted to enter it with a clear vision of what path I was wanting to head down. So this summer has been good. I hit the crossroads, I took a step back from all the distractions to really think about what was good for me and I now have a clear head.
I also had time to think about my little space here. I really did think long and hard as to whether Coco Rose had anything else left to give?
I have come to the conclusion that I don't think that I am done yet.......but I just have to decide what part it is going to play in my life. I think i'm just going to have to be a bit more relaxed about it though.
So once again
