There was once a woman
who wrote a blog about her family.
She wrote it day by day through two long summers
and the year in between
and it was everything
that she hoped it would be when she started.

But her life changed and her family needed her
and she realised that she did not have enough time
to take photographs and write for the blog anymore.

And so she decided to stop.

It was the right thing to do
but she felt overwhelmed by sadness
because she had made so many friends
and she missed them.

And the woman thought
"I could start another blog.
Just a little one
where I can chat to my friends
when I have a spare moment.
Where's the harm in that?"

And so she did.
