Desire like Dynamite, a new album from of a favorite artist, Sandra McCracken. Her point in the same titled cover song is that whatever we desire, in many cases, will feel like dynamite going off inside us. One example she uses is her toddler daughter’s strong will to get her way. Our desires can be like dynamite….except when they’re not.
Sandra’s song really has nothing to do with what I have to announce today unless you consider the objects of your affection or attention. Are the objects of your affection or attention desires like dynamite or are they desires at all? Are they just time suckers, chores, or objects of the mundane?
The Willing Cook has become a chore for me over the past few months. I have lost the drive, but I’ve continued on. I have lost the inspiration. The desire is certainly not there. I do have the desire to serve others, that part is true, but this medium is currently not my driving force to serve. So, what’s coming? Of course, you know. I’m stepping away….for now. I’m not closing the site down. In fact, I plan (at least for now) to continue with Allergy-Free Wednesdays every week. It is a great community that I want to continue to be a part of. I may even post the occasional recipe. And that’s that. I may be back in a month, in a few months, or perhaps not at all. We’ll see.
I cannot go away without my many thanks to you, my dear readers, for your continued support and encouragement throughout the last two years. I would never have launched The Willing Cook in the first place if I did not believe it had a presence in the lives of food allergy sufferers. I hope you will continue to share the site with others. There is tons of great information here as well as amazing recipes. None of that is going anywhere! I just won’t be adding anything new to it. If you are a regular linker to AFW, please continue to do so. Like I said, I intend to still post the weekly blog hop.
And there you have it. I bid you all adieu…..for now….
