i simply couldn't stay away for long...

oh hai. i'm back. for the month of may i think. its my birthday month. yes, the whole month. and i wanted to indulge/experiment. i'm going to give myself over to le blog for just 15 minutes a day. because i miss this little part of my day....but i don't miss its filtering into the rest of my life. so i'm going to hold it at arm's length.

i have been wrestling with these thoughts since i took a break from this page in february...i am the first to believe in the power of the online world to connect us, i didn't work at facebook for nothing...
but i also feel so strongly that by giving so much to our online presence we are taking away from our real, everyday, baba ram dass, be here now, selves. so with my 2 1/2 months of blog silence stored up i want to see if i can't reconcile the two.

and also, because i want to show you all, what a helluva place the carolinas are in the spring. especially on this little farm of ours. i want to tell you how much i'm enjoying bossypants and how slow going little dorrit is for my fried farm brain. how i thought my favorite running loop was 6 miles but ITS BARELY 3. i want to show you how much little piglet rose has grown and how her favorite food is strawberries. i want to share more of it all this month. so hello again....for now.

and please become acquainted with our summer dining room. we'll be spending a lot of the upcoming months in these chairs and on that hammock behind me. the weather is full summer here now.

o.k. its been more than 15 minutes. damnit. trying to make a graceful re-entry.


  1. Not to be over eager and all, but I am happy your back:)

    Think you've reached a wonderful compramise.

    Happy happiest of birthday months.


    P.S Think I have my first birth in July:)

  2. I'm so glad you're back, love! When are you on the island next? Come to the barn!... let's grill pizzas and drink wine. xoxoxo Miss your face!

  7. I am so glad your back! I love living vicariously through you :)

  8. I think you've got the right idea--devote a samll slice of time to the interworld, then go on living your real life.

    and it took me around 6 months (on and off) to read little dorrit. trudge through, it's worth it!
