My Sabbatical

Though sabbaticals are technically two IMG_0768months or longer, I’ve decided to take a mini one, about four weeks off from my blog. I want time to reflect, research, write, and ruminate. I will miss writing my little blog, but know that I will have much to say when I return.

Like those in this photo outside the New York Public Library, I have a need to consider where I’ve been and where I’m going.



About Diana Stevan

Stayed a writer through all my incarnations - teacher, social worker, model and actress. Writing is my bliss and is infused with pieces of my life that I can't help but put in my stories and blog. When I'm not writing, I'm busy hanging out with my husband, traveling, and trying to be a good mother and grandmother.

    Time for reflection is a very good thing. Enjoy the sabbatical. (I seem to have been taking an unintentional sabbatical from blogging…I should really post something!) 😉

    • Diana Stevan says:

      Thanks, Shari. Every so often, I need to pull back and look at the whole. Sometimes, to keep doing the same thing, is like squinting in the mirror and seeing only part of the story.

  2. Have fun and learn lots. See you when you get back.

    We will miss you,Diana, but rest and regrouping is always a good thing. I am so grateful for your support with my manuscript. I worked on your suggestions all day yesterday:) Savour your time in NY.

  4. Sometimes we do need a short break to give our minds time to think and reflect on what we want to do and where we want to go with it.

    You’re a great writer Diana, and I have no doubt your renewed spirit will give us all something to think about. Enjoy your time but please make sure you come back soon. I’ll be waiting.

    Nothing wrong with a Sabbatical. I keep trying. We’ll be here when you get back.

  6. I wish that, instead of a “Like” button to click, there would be a button to click that says “Well I’m Not Thrilled That You’ll Be Gone, But I Totally Understand–and I Want To Do That, Too–But I’ll Settle For Waiting For Your Return With Wonderful New Posts.”
    Good for you, Diana, and wishes for a wonderful month!
