PARIS STROLLS
MY SHORT STORIES AND OTHER CREATIVE WRITING ON OS

Please bear with me, OS pals!

Hi guys, I'm writing in a quick moment, just to apologize for not being on OS more, and reading and commenting on your posts.  Things in real life have gotten pretty much incessantly busy, in good and bad ways.

Ali perfectly captures my exhaustion. 
 
 
Now, they seem like they might be calming down a bit, and hopefully I'll be able to catch up.
 
I've wanted to write this for a while, because I miss you guys and your writing. I feel like a jerk for publishing my last post, and then not being able to stick around to read and comment.  And I also feel horrible about not being able to respond to comments you've left on some of my recent posts.
 
I hope you're all doing well, and I hope I'll be back in the OS saddle very soon.  I have a little time now and I'm going to start some reading!

Thanks for putting up with the drag time and error messages... in the mean time you're living your dream in Paris and you have a life - enjoy it.
there's nobody left to read you.

Ali just gave me a great idea zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz :)

Btw, no need to apologize; "everybody needs a little time away/I heard her say..."

no problem. hopefully when you come back, OS will be working smoothly. hmmmm...maybe you will bring back the magic.
Hi,waving my hand in your direction,from Freiburg.i.B. to Paris.
Please give your royal tiger a hug.

~r~
well, you are conditionally forgiven, dear Alysa.
we shall see if you make good on your promise to come back!
what the heck could be more imporant than OS?
"Real Life", eh? Pain in the ass, literally!
Arg sciatic nerve hurts so so bad.
Thanks for being here when you can. I'm glad things are getting a little bit easier. Maybe let Ali write a post? He must be sufficiently rested by now!

That adorable photo of Ali gets you off the hook, Alysa. Always good to see you here.
Do you remember when "Spinal Tap" said they were playing to "more select" audiences these days?

I've come to appreciate that my readers are giving me the luxury of not having to respond so much. That's it. Yes, a luxury, in that it gives me more OS time to read others, including them and to refine my next piece.

Your apology is so sweet, in that it was readily tendered, when others who really ought to, don't. I confess to looking in on the "Parisienne/Américaine" more times than I leave comments in the wake.

We all are under Malthusian pressures to find the time to create and be good "favorites" to one another.

Ali rules!
I'm amazed you have been able to get into OS at all. Do your thing, dear. We'll all be here or on OurS fighting the good fight until you can return.
