can you see me...

of course you can't
because
i'm hiding behind this old out building
feeling guilty
~
i've been a bad
blogger commenter
lately
and
i need to apologize
to all of you
~
everyday
so many of you take the time
to leave me the most wonderful and beautiful comments
that make me smile and laugh and feel grateful
and
i just want to thank all of you
and
apologize
for not doing the same thing to you
~
so
if you forgive me
i promise to get my act together
like
really
really
soon
and
be there for all of you
like you are for me
~

  2. Oh I know what that's like. Guilt is not necessary. I'm just venturing out after a couple of weeks of non-activity myself. :)

  5. I've just recently discovered your blog, being new to blogging myself. And I think you've been a really gracious responder. Sheesh! We comment a lot! You could spend your life commenting back, and then we wouldn't have your lovely photos and your unique words to brighten our days.

    But your apology just shows your spirit, which is why we like getting to know you better : )

  6. This is so sweet, the best, most creative apology I've ever seen! :D (Thank you for your kind words...I appreciate it so very much.)

  7. For me, I comment when I want to and I don't keep track if someone comments on mine. Just not into that. I am just glad you are able to post regularly because your writing and you photos are special.

  12. Oh gosh, life happens...we all know that, and we all love you. And that photo, it is like a dream, I want to walk into it and sit beneath that tree with a book and a glass of lemonade.

  13. I love how you weave what you want to say around a picture -- I haven't read others comments, but I am sure that most - if not all - are telling you to be easy on yourself -- I think that we all go through seasons -- sometimes we are very present in the blogging world and sometimes we are more behind the scenes. Bu that is o.k. -- because there are so many of us we kinda take turns -- it is part of the flow of life -- at least that is my view of it : )

  17. It's no big deal, Beth, we all have time constraints and you've got so many followers, I don't know how you ever keep up. I got so behind during my 5 days in the hospital! I found one blog with 18 comments to which none I've responded. Yikes.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Deal! And no big deal. We all go through spurts like that (like when I'm at home on dial up and it takes eons just to load the page, must less go to the comment engine!) But I love to have you stop by and always look forward to your visit!

    Come out from behind that building (and when you, show us some photos of what's back there!)

    always a pleasure visiting here.
    one love, my friend.

    enjoy your long weekend.

  20. Beth - you silly girl. I do this too. I hope everyone understands that sometimes it's just hard to say things, that sometimes you just need the comfort of knowing those other folks are still out there.

  21. Oh Beth, not to worry. I visit blogs that I enjoy whether they comment on mine or not. Your blog is a feast for my eyes every time I'm here. No apology necessary.

  22. Love the old out building.Please do not feel guilty and hide for not commenting on everyone's blog.I come here to see your great photo's and read your poetic writing. I fear if you spent time trying to comment on everyone's blog it would take away from your creative time.

  23. I see you were visited again by the Asian spammer. So sorry! And guilt is such a waste of time. Sometimes I visit a blog and read the comments and decide that I don't have anything more to say than others have already said. Why be redundant?

    ReplyDelete
  24. No excuses, but some days are just hard to get around to visit. Thanks for visiting me a little while ago. I hope it quieted (hushed) your soul.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I feel like that a lot, and I am a new reader.

    Sometimes blogging can be a lot of pressure, but it looks like you have a lot of friends and followers who love you.

    ReplyDelete
  26. My dear there is no need to apologize at all. I always feel your warmth and spirit no matter what. You are such an incredible soul!

    ReplyDelete
  27. You know just being able to visit you is enough, your heart shows through in your photography and your writings. hugs.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh I know the feeling... and that's ok. Thank you soooo much for the encouragement the other day- it is so very much appreciated! Happy Weekending! BTW- I am trying photoshop and am very frustrated...any suggestions of where to start? (like ther's an easy answer...lol)

  29. looks like all these bloggy people just love you anyway... its an unconditional thing with some people. :)
    Your posts lift us, so do your comments oftentimes, but who cares. Besides, it's summer... we're all in and out in the summer.
    If you are stressing over commenting it's time to take a long blogging break!!! haha.

  30. I love your style of photography.
    Stop by and visit.

  31. I know how completely difficult it is to keep up with commenting even on the few blogs that I do...so no apologies needed here! Stop by when you get a chance and comment only if you have time:)

  32. Oh sweet lady I can tell you're there. No matter were you hide. Thanks for this one, love the shed. Hugs D.

  33. Please, no guilt about coming or not coming to my blog. I come here because I love ya and want to see what you're up to.

    I can't imagine visiting everyone that leaves a comment. I just am not able to do so.

**I love reading the comments you leave, as they make me feel like we're sitting in my kitchen, having a cup of tea, discussing life and wondering where all the time has gone ...beth
