Though literally shaken today*, this was not the reason for my absence from the virtual world. We have been shaken over here by the somehow expected but nonetheless very painful loss of a family member. Time is spend mourning and being able to spend comfort takes a lot of my energy.
However, to sink in petrified grief will not do justice to the lively, amiable, energetic and always optimistic person we miss now. Therefore, I will be back tomorrow with a cheer- and colourful post.
I am looking forward to taking on my blog roll again, see you all...
*We experienced a little earthquake this afternoon. Luckily, with the epicentre being more than 15 km away and not very high on Richtersscale (4,6), it had the same impact as if an excavator would bump into the garden's wall (which happened not so long ago).
