The Buddha; Patience. Right.

I hope this quick post finds you Happy and Warm and Inspired!

I am longing to respond to all the beautiful, thoughtful and inspiring comments.

I had a plan: take a couple of days to myself and write, write, write and post, post, post.

As often happens, my plans have been foiled.

I am not able to get access to the internet consistently right now.


The Buddha.



Every time I am NOT looking for a lesson; one pops up.

I hate that; sort of.

I am very much looking forward to nominating others for the Kreative Blogger award

and the Versatile Blogger award.

I am honored to be in this position.

Thank you again, Paulann of


AZ of

This is fun and important.

I will attempt to find Wi-Fi.

In the meantime, my fingers are flying on the keys of my treasured Apple!

I am thinking of you all

and will soon get the opportunity to respond to all your comments.

These comments have gotten me through perhaps the hardest time in my life.

Funny how this works:

I start a blog, I write, we meet and talk and I learn and grow.

And then The Worst Time hits and there You Are.

Funny how things work out.

I miss connecting.

Happy New Year if I don’t get this Plan Back on Track Before then..

Peace,   Jen

  1. Wow I’m first here. On the phone that writes Egypt when I type get. That I hate!

    You, I love! Back sort of or taking care of you! Big Yay again for you blogging honors. Spellcheck or autocorrect is the devil: I’m convinced.,-)


  2. Jen, when you want to see God laugh, just make plans. 🙂
    Sorry you’re having internet troubles and thinking of you these days. As Steve Miller sang, “Time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping….into the future”. Let’s go head first, together, gracefully. Happy New Year


  3. Jen, we miss you greatly, but I, for one, know how it is to have sketchy Internet service. Just drop a line whenever you get air time and we will know you are okay, and that will make our hearts cheery again. 🙂
    Love you.


  4. Jen – I’m sure it makes the writer in you crazy not to be able to write at will. While we miss you, I’m pretty sure you know by now that you’ve taken up residence in our hearts and prayers.
    Our internet only works when it’s in the mood – which isn’t always when I’m awake. 🙂
    Happy New Year to you, too. I have a felling this new year will be full of gifts of grace for you.


  5. Time to think and write. A little slice of heaven. I know the absence of internet won’t slow you down, and I look forward to reading the poetic thoughts that come to you during this “down” time. Happy New Year to you and yours!


  6. Be in the ‘now’. It’s what we all are learning. Enjoy. The Muse will come.


  7. If you get the chance, you might try writing with pen and paper. Rocking it old school is good for the soul!


    • I MUCH prefer Paper and Pen. I love the ‘rocking it old school’ term. Are you calling me old?

      I need more sleep… OR more ADRENALIN from staying up REALLY LATE…

      oh. lord. give me some paper and pencil and a nap….


  8. I have found that while it is frustrating to be techonolgyless (word?), I kind of grow to like the peace and quiet!


    • Here here! I am still mostly a Paper and Pen Gal. I ONLY write in quiet too. I would be suited for the moors perhaps or a garrett….

      Peace and quiet is hard to come by. now where did I put that darn meditation bench…???

      Peace to you my Friend!
