I offer my profuse thanks to friends and readers who in turn, offered their words of encouragement and consolation during a trying time. I contemplated on either stopping blogging or moving on to another. Then again, after a short hiatus and a refreshing out-of-town break, I'm eager to start again where I left off. honestly, I'm still a bit depressed and frustrated with my current lot in life but what the hey, knowing I'm able to bring a bit of cheer, a bit of the beauty of this corner of the world, to friends from all over give me the impetus to keep moving forward. God bless y'all!
