Taking It Off
It’s time. Time to call off the recess and get back into the building. Time to let nature take its course now that I am done thinking, planning, rethinking and re-planning.
It’s been a thought provoking and enlightening 2-3 week experience that's brought me a fair share of peace of mind now that the clouds have cleared somewhat. I know I gave it my best shot & dealt with the issues the best way I could. I know I may still need to go back to the drawing board but nothing warranting (hopefully) another blog hiatus.
As I breathe easy now I know I shouldn’t overlook those times it felt like walking through life while groping in the dark because braving them make me value the many moments when it feels so good that the here & now needs to be stretched out into the future. So, like many of life’s surprises, this ride has been both amazingly fun & a harrowing pain but… ¿ Así es la Vida, no?, C’est la vie, non?, Ndio maisha, au sio?, lol! Am just glad I took it for what it is & came out with not so many bruises.
So, now it’s official: Am Taking It Off
Am taking off my thinking cap for 2 reasons:
a) To salute all you wonderful KB-Dubs for reaching out to me via comments, emails, phone calls...yes, all you wonderful folks that didn't care whether you were at work, in the metro, was past your bed time or even whether it was inter-state or across continents.
Asante for: the assurance that nothing is ever dull between friends, e-hugs, the rib-splitting jokes, teasing me about my name (grin!), reminding me I can make that trip to the metro-area when am ready, those wonderfully edited photos with the positive thoughts [had your name signed on it:)], wishing me a great day despite your uncertain work & life schedules, making sure I crack a smile despite your laptop crashing when you needed it most, helping me see through the clouds & assuring me mountains can be moved, checking in on me while you got clients saying 'aaaah' , lol!! To each & everybody, blogger, flickrati, fellow insomniacs... Next to my family & closest friends ... Nani kama nyinyi?! .
Many thanks everybody. It means the world to me ... yeah, the real world, not just the blog world:) ! You're proof that behind your mysterious blog names & closely guarded real personas lie very genuine caring souls!
b) To allow (insert my real name if u know it) the thinker to take a break & resume his normal life & bring in akiey the doer to keep on blogging…
**PS: The name is ‘akiey’, pronounced ‘akii’ and written in lower case---"If you don't know, now you know":)
And...now that am back with the family..."Who the hell took my chair, & where the heck is my favourite black t-shirt!?"
