sayonara now

for a while

These latest sunset images are from two nights ago when the sun bade its glorious daily farewell to us at Ricketts Point. I have to bid a temporary farewell to you my blogging friends who have been sharing such creative and educational haiku plus poetry, photos and stories with me during these 3 years I have been blogging.

I have to stop procrastinating about completing the initial draft of my first novel. That means I have to seriously rationalise my time and that in turn means minimising my time spent on the internet. Thus  a halt to blogs and blogging and all those other fascinating things the internet throws up daily.

So its Sayonara, a longer goodbye as the Japanese would say until we meet again in WordPress space towards the end of our HOT Australian Summer in 2018.

    Gorgeous photos as ever Denis. We will miss you, especially those of us in the One-a-week Photo Challenge. I completely understand your need to focus and wish you well with your writing. I’m looking forward to hearing more about your novel in due course. Have a wonderfully productive time. Sayonara.

    Best of luck getting your book done. I will miss your gorgeous photos of a part of the world I will probably never see and the words you so eloquently put together.
