Old Bartley Place

The old Bartley place, painted by Carl Morris, was built by my great-grandparents in 1914(ish) and still stands

Heart in Hand's most recent blog entry lamented the loss of frequent posting by bloggers, and I have to agree. Facebook has taken the wind out of many writing sails, from what I can see. But whatever: it is what it is. The time for some things just passes, and this has to be accepted.

I return to regularly updated webpages; others fairly quickly fall off my radar.

It was late when I got to bed last night, and considerably later when I got to sleep. I didn't let the wakefulness make me anxious; after all, I told myself, I am resting. Bet I was snoozing three seconds after letting myself off the gotta-sleep hook.


  1. It breaks my heart when good writers (and friends) get sucked into the Facebook vortex. Lol!
    1914 is a hundred years ago, yet to a genealogist, it seems like yesterday.

    1. I do have one friend whose Facebook posts are fabulous. But I still miss her blogging.

  2. I read that post but even though I agree with everything about the Facebook vs blogging thing, I couldn't bring myself to write anything---not angst, not apathy, just lack of interesting material.

    1. It may not seem interesting to you, but I guarantee, I find every one of your entries interesting.
      Still, I understand not feeling inspired to write.
