movement


movement, originally uploaded by NessieNoodle.

Sometimes it is good to keep moving... I think it is important to realize when something starts to take over, and at this point in time- the blog has. That said I am saying good bye. And moving on from the blog world. Back to pen and paper and face to face communication....

I love what blogging has done for me, dont get me wrong.
I have begun to write again, to take more photos than I have ever imagined, found the patience to sew and to knit.
The people that I have found out here (you all know who you are) are top notch. You all make me laugh and cry. I feel like I know you even though I have never heard your voice or given you a hug.
....this is the part that I love and that bothers me as well. You know how they say that we start to recognize tv sitcom characters as part of our reality? that freaks me out- it is all so virtual and strange and a little bit of how I feel about all of you (not that you guys freak me out, it is the idea that I am tied to you all in such a virtual way).
The NEED I have to check in with your blogs is stronger than the need I seem to have to check in with those people that live in the same town as me, those people that are my immediate support system. I am more apt to sit infront of the screen on a Friday night then call a girlfriend up to go catch a beer and a flick.... this is why I must say goodbye..... I think that I need to focus on what is happening off the screen.

Thank you all for your comments, your laughter and for sharing a bit of your world with me for the past few years...

I am going to continue to post on Flickr (however, this too has become all consuming and I question the amount of time I spend on that site as well...)
If you want to email me feel free (leave a comment if you don't have my addy) and if any of you wonderful bloggvillians are in the Biggest Little City make sure to let me know!

Good night moon~~~~~~

Oh.. I'm so sad to see you go! I added you to my Flickr contacts (I'm MsMousieB over there) so that I can keep up with your awesome photos.. but you'll definitely be missed!

You do what you have to, but know that you'll be missed. I'll be checkin' in with you on flickr. And if you're ever in Austin, look me up and I'll buy you a beverage!

Becky said...

Bye! It's been great getting to know you. Your photos are awesome and your blog has been fun to visit. Look me up when you come to the coast. And have fun!

Will miss you Nessie but someday, sometime, don't be surprised when I walk up to you (in Jimmy Beans or Deluxe, or at Wingfield, or Cal Ave or perhaps the Gelena PO) and say "Hello, aren't you Nessie Noodle?"

I'll miss you too, though I only found your blog a little while ago, I have enjoyed how the world looks from where you are. Your creativity and kind words will be missed! I will keep up with your flickr--I actually just started my own on Friday. I completely understand where you're coming from here...
Love and light on your journey,
Love,
Delia

A wise choice, Nessie. I've thought about it myself, and totally applaud you. Enjoy 'The Real World' and may all your adventures be blessed!

when i come out west to see my brother i am looking you up for a round of scrabble, a beverage, and photo date :)
have fun nessie, i'll miss you so!

Ani said...

I'll certainly miss your blog world presence but hopefully we can make some real-life time in the near future. I'll email you!

LeS said...

Oh, Ness, I do SO understand what you are saying. Someday I believe my presence online will evolve to a much less interactive one.

You will certainly be missed in this space but I will keep up with you at Flickr (thanks for the love there by the way!) and we still have to have that photobooth date one of these days!!

Promise?

kathyb said...

oh...that makes me sad...I do understand and hope that life continues to go well for you, and I of course will see you on flickr and will continue to enjoy your photos.

Stacie said...

Ok, how freaky is it that I am having a cry! Will miss you, Nessie!

I have really enjoyed reading your blog. Thank you for sharing with us ALL of the beauty in your world. Best of luck to you and your family in all you do.

Kathleen said...

sigh...
i was not expecting to see these words...
i am sad to see you leave
however...
i completely understand.
sometimes i feel the same and
have to walk away from the light...

looking forward to still being able to see your rad photos on flickr. : )

peace. xo

i'm a little behind on my blog checkin'-ins, and just had the chance to read your post...you'll be missed nessie. i think of you every time i cozy into those popsicle colored sockies of mine. thank you for being here, and then leaving when you knew you had to. i, too, have many of the same feelings about blogging that you expressed here, and i imagine that we would have much to talk about over a beer or two. xx
