The Reason for the Silence

Many of you have seen that the posts here at Color Outside the Lines have dropped significantly.

In my non-blog world, my schedule has become too hectic to fit in time to blog. Additionally, at every corner something seems to be falling apart, and for at least the short term, it is necessary for the blog to suffer from my lack of attention so that I can try to repair the things laying broken at my feet.

Posts will be sporatic until I gain some solid ground, and the tasks that lay on the to do side of my list are complete.

I ask that you all remember me fondly, and that you take some time to look back through older posts for inspiration and ideas. I'll be back soon, until then ... peace!

    Speaking for myself I fully understand. One must do what must be done. Personally I do not know how you Bloggers do it.

    WILL MISS YOU!
