A good bye too soon

As everything beautiful has an end, as everything wonderful has a stop…this is something like a full stop.

Been here for some time and I have gained many friends, lost some too.
It is for some time that I have been thinking that blogging is becoming an addiction to me, interfering with my life and my work.

Many a times, I have tried at least to stay away partially, but in vain.Of late, I came to understand that blogging has become not only an addiction, but also domination.

I am leaving here with a handful of friends and a heartful of gratitude.
I thank one and all for all the encouragements you have showered on me, praises included.
I can point out each and every encouragement you have given me.

Knowingly, I haven’t hurt anyone in my posts except monica.

I deeply regret the incident that happened due to a misunderstanding.

For the first time, I won’t be replying to your comments.
But I will be right here, reading but not commenting.

I don’t intent to close this page as I am not sure if I will come back or not.

If I have hurt anyone in my replies to their comments, I want to apologise for that, though I don’t remember hurting any.

For some, who think that I am over-smart…a smile with out any reservations.

For some, who think that I have nothing more important than writing… another smile.

This is my good bye

This won’t be complete with out thanking some one, from the blogosphere who has written a post about me in her blog.I thank her for that

And lastly, thanks to a real poetess who encouraged me to publish my lines.

I will say hello to all, if I come back.

I do intend to come back, but I don't know when

Good bye.

Scrawl down please !


Many of you have asked me, how I look like.

It is time, at least when it is parting time to let me know who I am.
I tried to upload it here somehow it doesn't work well.

See, me on the video below


A video on me.


Put on your headphone.......... or turn on your sound.

Walker said...

You know Jac I'm not going to say goodbye to you because you wont leave something you love just as much as I didn't leave when I should have.
Take a break, go get laid and have some spicy food and then fart your way back to these pages.
I'll be here as will the rest of these nice people.
Oh and I saw your video, you are looking a little green so I suggest you take a holiday and get some sun man.

Take care

Monica said...

Okay, Jac, if this is actually a way of going on a retreat so you can FINALLY BLESS US with a book of poetry...I back you 100%. Just let me know before you post it so I can be first in line for the book!

Take care, friend. :)

I love Munich said...

Jaaaaaaaaaac!!! I was about to tag you ... and read THAT?? We all became sort of a HUGE family (that's at least the way I feel) .. and with you missing - there will be a big hole!

I'll miss ya buddy ... return quickly, Ok? :)
Watch yourself in the meantime!!

kat said...

Instead of going altogether why not cut it down to just a weekly or monthly post.

samuru999 said...

jac
I was going through your archives... such beautiful poems!

I have a quote to share with you:

"A good fiendship is unlike a
book: although it has a
beginning and a middle, it
should not have an ending.

Missing you!

jarvenpa said...

I hope you will find you are just taking a break for a while (and I did play the video: my, what nice large eyes you have!). These days so many of my favorite writers have decided to stop...it makes me a little sad.

Dotm said...

Jac, Sorry I have been so busy trying to get things done in the shop. Now that the tables are finished, I am trying to get the building better sealed up for winter so it will be cheaper to heat it.
I haven`t forgotten you and will surely miss you while you are off your blog. I pray you will be back before too long. I have always enjoyed reading your stories about places and people you have met in your travels. Looking forward to reading lots more in the future.
Enjoy your rest and then hurry back- you will be missed.
Today was my Birthday and the family kept me real busy. I thought of tagging you, but remembered you once wrote that you preferred not doing the tags.
Take care friend.

hellbunny said...

Hugs June xxx

November Rain said...

Jay said...

I'm very sad to see you go.

m.reza said...

Jac, I guess I know the feeling, for I wanted to do this as well, but you did it before me and I admire your strength. I know that you will come back, for I know that you are a sunflower and just can’t stop gazing at sun from dawn till dusk. So I will be patient till this cloud passes by. Cheers body, and all the best.

sophie said...

Colleen said...

jac, I hope that whatever happens in your life brings you joy.

I will miss you dearly. I don't always leave comments, and I'm not always around... but I do consider you a friend and I shall greatly miss your gorgeous pictures, your interesting stories, and your poetry.

I hope you will stay in touch! And I hope that with time, you may decide to come back and blog once again.

*Sending you Hugs* in my thoughts.

Srijith Unni said...

Hello Jac,

This is the first time, I am coming here and am deeply saddened that I have to be witness to you having stopped blogging. Shall read you older posts however.. especially since you write poetry.
You have made a conscious decision, I express my appreciation for that.
Someday when you come back, do let me know, my friend.

With Best Regards,
Srijith Unni.

Sreejith Kumar said...

Well, is that a permanent solution if you think blogging became an addiction and a domination so that you give it up? Why don't you decide to post at least once a month?

Dotm said...

Jac, I hope you are having a blast enjoying yourself and also resting up while you are away. Just don`t leave us, come back when your vacation is over. We will be waiting. :):)

esvee said...

Raggedy said...

I just get here and you are gone..
*sniffles....
Enjoy your life and if you come back give us a big shout!
Huge Hugs

Strictly for my friends said...

Hey...what happened? Do come back. I just tagged you. You were one of the first ones to encourage me when I started blogging. Dont leave just yet!

Dotm said...

Just leaving a note to let you know you are missed, but I wish you plenty of enjoyment during your off blog rest time. But, do hurry back as soon as you feel ready.

sAP said...

Jac, I'd probably be the only one here to appreciate your decision. You are giving up something that you really love for something that is worth far more -- your family. And for you to have realized that at *might I say* the peak of your blogging engagement, certainly says a lot about who you are. Congratulations.

moodsandcolors said...

Hi Jac
A pretty long hiatus...it's time now to come back.Looking forward to see you again...

Chaotic Serenity said...

Wow, I finally got back to blogging and you are gone!
I will miss you and I wish you enough. Your friends will all be here when and if you decide to come back. Until then, friend, you take care of you.

Dotm said...

Jac, Just checking to see if you were back yet. Hope your work is going well. I know work has to come first. Hope the weeks go by fast so your free vacation time to blog is back soon..

Saroj said...
