Recording the moment

 So it's been a while.




Last night we had some sad news about a friend, someone whose smile and laughter we remember so clearly.  We hadn't seen him for several years but we can still pull from our memories so many shared moments.  Summer days in London parks, raucous evenings in noisy pubs, the strumming of a guitar and the mixtape he made us to take on our honeymoon.





It made me think of this space and how I missed recording life's moments.

The happy and the sad.



I floundered here.  As my business grew and the story of my days changed I lost my way to this space.  I was no longer sure what to write, I didn't want it all to be about work and my voice just stalled.  But now I think I would like to come back.




And record the moments, here and there.

Good. There's something about blogging that can feel quite freeing - recording the moments, here and there, seems like a good way forward.

So nice to hear your voice but sad to hear your news. I feel the same about 'coming back' to the blog and the voice after an absence. Your writing and photography are a warming presence online.
