Bless me bloggers for I have sinned…

Digital Journal, week 2

…It has been two months since my last post. The biggest sin of all is that in that particular post I promised I’d be back soon! Obviously I was in an optimistic mood that evening. Said post was sincerely intended to be a preliminary, re-introductory set-up to my return to the blogosphere, just as this is now. Lessons have indeed been learned that post, however. 

Tonight I do not mean to make any more unfulfilled promises of regular postage – I’ve learned to accept the fact my free (i.e. blogging) time has been sucked into a vacuum of local intrigue and mundane mystery –  but I can tell you the compulsion to return to this weird and wonderful world of whimsy and marvel has been growing. 

The intention behind the last failed post was to rekindle the addiction which in the past had me dependent on my dashboard, and hooked on the hokum. (You’re all some craic!) Like an alcoholic sipping the nectar of the gods for the first time in a decade, I expected the lingering taste to consume me once again, filling me with the unquenchable desire to log in and cop out, just as in the glory days of old. 

Yet it came and waned, too easily ignored my liking. I have many friends in this little corner of cyberspace (you all know who you are), and just like my friends in whatever the non-cyberspace alternative is (some people call it real life, but personally I find that a tad philosophically contentious), I have neglected you all for the sake of everyday survival-esque pseudo-necessity.  

Sorry about that.

But you don’t want to read yet another guilt-ridden apology – I’ve already said sorry for not having called by to say hello so many times I’d imagine it’d be insulting to ask for forgiveness yet  again.  Instead I’d just like to say ‘hello’. ‘hope you are well’, and ‘promise I’ll be back tomorrow’. (Whoops, didn’t mean to do that!)

May I be the first to state the obvious, Roisin?

You come and go as you like. There's no apology needed, not even for saying 'be back soon.' And the need for forgiveness stands not within the prospect of belief. (I'm not keen on the concept of forgiveness anyway. There's something unacceptably presumptuous about it.)

So, welcome back (if you are back) and it's good to see you.

Everyone has their own blogging style, rhythm, riffs.
It's always a pleasure when you make an appearance, however long, short, often, rarely. Like the good folk, come and go as you please!

I'm in the same boat as you, lovely lady, but my typing skills aren't half as accurate as yours while inebriated. ;-)

Sometimes we just can't find the time in the hustle and bustle of every day living to spend the time on friends across the street, much less the globe. It happens, it's understood. No reason to apologize.

For my part, I still love ya! I hope that back's quit giving you issues.
