Throw Back

Events of the last year threw me back. In fact, events of last year may have even thrown my back back. I thought that I was coping with the news (old and new), but this has not been my best year of my 69 years. Losing my mom and my confidante two years ago was difficult, but I am sure that the last 366 days have been more so.

Without dwelling more on what has been, I am moving forward. We finally put Facebook away as we should have done last December when we first discussed that break. There was a good reason that I never joined it personally, since I knew it wasn't right for me. 

I am a blogger, and I like to take photos. If I can just puzzle out how to get my photos on my blogposts again, I will be all set. Plus my Wetcreek Instagram is working out okay. 

Now, since I have that under control, can't someone figure out how to solve the other problems of the world?

Oh! To be able to solve the problems of the world. Sounds like you have had quite a year, my friend. Let's hope the next one is a whole lot better. xo Diana

I look at Facebook; it's where my friends and family hang out, and they don't annoy me there. I have a visual picture of Facebook as a series of boxes of varying heights. People move from one to the next, step up with varying degrees of difficulty, have they say, or spiel, or rant, step down and move on to the next box. Strange continuity and little action.
I wonder if you need to tinker with your settings? Mine are destroyed beyond repair, but nothing important is gone, yet.

To solve the problem to get your pictures on your blog again is only a tiny problem, but solving problems of the world is an impossible task I think. I wish you get better days, I'm looking forward to a better year too, pffft.

Hi Linda, this is my first visit to your blog (I stopped in from JP’s blog, A Quiet Corner) as I enjoy coming across blogs new to me. And, after reading this short post, I had to say that I am not a Facebook fan and have resisted the urge to get on the bandwagon because I too am a diehard blogger. I like the freedom and space it affords me to ramble and to share what I am doing and to see what so manynothers are doing both in the US and beyond. Its also allowed me to personally meet some fellow bloggers.
Sorry to read about your mom’s passing, my mother died nearly 3 years ago in December and I miss her as well and the holidays are a bit sadder. Also Hope your photo blog posing problem is resolved.
Please feel free to visit our blog too as we always enjoy visits and comments, Linda.
