Here's a rarity! An apology
An ambitious sub-theme, never mastered, was cut and that seemed to help. This bit seemed encouraging:
Adopting a cloche, an urchin or a bob would have been an admission of defeat. She was – always had been - a woman with long hair. Hair defined her and she was satisfied with that definition. She consulted an elderly stylist who was said to distrust scissors. Redeployment was the answer. “Bring it together, gather it up from the nape of your neck, coil it on your head and create a chignon. No one will say you have short hair.”
I plunged on, often on auto-pilot, blogging, emails, commenting sloppily (ie, writing too much). Breaking off to attend to VR's laptop. Careless about techie stuff too. It seems Blogger allows you - at a single keystroke - to create a post consisting of precisely nothing. This I did but without realising. Three faithfuls in effect chided me (very mildly).
Angry at being such an asshole I inserted a line in the empty post - the first thing that came into my head - and returned to Blest.
In the circumstances the line I inserted not only meant nothing, it was open to grievous misinterpretation. I pondered deleting the post but that meant killing the comments - which I have to say I deserved.
Best to apologise. I AM ABJECTLY SORRY! Back to the Blest comfort blanket.
