"On my Way Home"

 
 
 
Several months ago, I was so busy that I stopped updating my previous blogs.
 
A few weeks ago, I deleted all of my blogs, in the middle of an emotional turmoil, feeling as if it would also delete my old self...
 
I'm not ready to write about the causes of the emotional turmoil yet, but at least I'm ready to start a new blog now.
 
I've decided to call it "On my Way Home."
 
I won't be able to spend so much time on blogging, but I hope to take part in some of my favorite "blog hopping" again.
 
Visiting Six Sentence Stories hosted at Uncharted, I've found that this week's cue happens to be "HOME."
