Hello Faisal:We shall miss you greatly, perhaps more than you can realise. Do not, please, lose touch altogether.In the meantime, take great care. We send our love.
Hello Jane and Lance, I'm touched that you should say that. I'm a little tired of the sound of my own voice and need to step back a little while to find one more alive. It's a diet, if you like. Even now I find it hard to write. I have no intention of losing touch with two of my favourite people!
Why?? I was really enjoying reading your blog! :-)
Matthew, I've been loving my blog immensely, and so many lovely people I've met I consider friends. But I've found myself obliged to keep coming up with posts even when I don't feel too inspired. I've sort of run out of puff a bit. I'm not shutting the blog down, just drawing breath, trying to find what matters more.
Dear Faisal,First the Holy Father announces his resignation and now you are taking a break!What next?!I enjoy reading your blog and so, selfishly, i hope that your interlude is not too long...With best wishes always,Kirk
Dear Kirk, I'm not sure if the Holy Father and I have too much in common, except, perhaps, a need for some space. I don't want to talk, unless I have something to say. I feel I've been saying things to fill a space for a little while. I want to come back with something worth reading/hearing. Thank you.
I'll miss you, too. I understand the need for space.
Whoever you are, Unknown, I appreciate and value your words.
I know exactly how you feel, and look forward to your return. God bless you Faisal.
Paul, we can't keep doing something if the feeling for it isn't there. You've hit the nail on the head - God's blessing means most of all to me.
Faisal,I await your return! Have a great blogcation.
A blogcation sounds full of encouraging possibility Michael!
You will be missed, Faisal! I understand completely. Have a break and come back rejuvenated. By the way, your posts haven't sounded as though you were at all jaded. Best wishes, Carol
Thankyou Carol, for your big heart. Let the un-jading begin!

All is good, Demie...I'd just run out of ideas and felt I was repeating myself. I might be back before you know it!
Take care Laddie.
That's what a gardener has to do, eh?
