last light burning

one-two-one-two - we're through - we're through...

Farewell ( for now ) -

For the past two months I've been posting mostly archival images that I could put up quickly. And I've not been taking the time to view your work and to share thoughts with you. This isn't in the spirit of A Minus 3. The simple truth is that my life has taken many twists this year and my attention has been elsewhere - of necessity.

This week I'm moving and then dealing with some other changes. This is all to the better and I'm grateful to a lot of good friends for the support I've had in navigating some rough spots recently. I look forward to the time ahead.

After 1,211 consecutive images - it is time for a break. With today's post as number twelve twelve (as in one-two-one-two) - I am taking a break for awhile. I'll be back as soon as I can fully participate in our wonderful community.

My warmest regards to you all. Hopefully - I'll see you back here in the fall.

Joyous light...

@Ronnie 2¢: Thanks so much Ronnie. Your conversations with Lilly along with the ongoing saga of Arlo and Bebe and their assorted friends and adversaries - are a constant source of fun and joy. (The pretty good beginnings of a run-on sentence there !) - - - I hope to re-join you all soon!!!

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Your personal life and how it is organised must always come first Stephen and if a new direction is called for then it must be carefully planned and put in place. I'll miss your postings and your humour for a while but look forward to your return. Hoping that everything goes well for you in the immediate future.
