Well, you might have noticed a little bloggy madness going on here yesterday evening. Late last night I deleted my post from Wednesday (Remembering) and the post that I put up in a hurry yesterday to try and clarify Wednesday's post.
I want to explain what my original post on Wednesday was about, and what has happened since then.
My post on Wednesday (Remembering) was my way of thinking about the events of 9/11. I used to live in America, and I still feel very close to America because of my friends who live there and the time that I spent there. I didn't want to mention 9/11 in my post, just prompt my lovely readers to spend a little time in thought as I do myself on this day every year.
The poem that I had posted is, as I understand, a love poem, and the meaning of posting was love. Nothing else. I spent many hours trying to decide which poem to post, whether to post, if I should include an explanation. All sorts, I agonised and was almost in tears about this.
In the end I decided on my poem, decided not to say why I had posted it, but just put it up. My blog providers stats tell me that it was read, and I had one lovely comment, and then another also lovely comment on the second post that I made in a hurry yesterday.
I did however, make reference to something which I wish I had not. I will not repeat it because that will make it horrible all over again. However, I was very worried yesterday when I realised that what I said could have been misunderstood. If it had been misunderstood by anyone they would have done so in the most caring of ways, but it was not a misunderstanding that I wanted anyone to have.
There is no other reason for me making this change than a possible misunderstanding. No misunderstanding took place as far as I know, but I wanted to make sure that none could happen once I became aware of the situation.
So as soon as I realised I posted an amended post in the interim and then removed both the original and amended posts.
Please know that you can trust me always to post honestly and truthfully and that I will always speak from my heart, but never nastily, rudely or with any malice. We might not always agree, but I will always be honest - as I am sure you will too.
I made a mistake, which I have tried to rectify, and which affected, I hope, no one but me. I have been reassured that I have not caused any problems, but I wanted to stop things before I did. When I make a mistake I apologise and try very very hard not to do it again. My mistake, but I need to explain to you all.
Thank you for your visits here, I hope this will not put you off coming back. I look forward to seeing you in the future.
Normal service with crochet and cakes and flowers and all things nice will resume tomorrow - I promise!
p.s. I can never promise not to ramble on!
