note to self: go outside

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." —  Henry David Thoreau credit My phone died recently. Not like died because of its charge — permanently died. I'm not the only one whom this has happened to, I'm sure, and this isn't a complaint. Rather, it's an observation on how different the landscape of my life has been without it. I've been reading more, watching more TV, doing less doomscrolling. I found that I've missed my phone a lot less and simultaneously a lot more than I expected. And I've been noticing a difference in my mental state. My mental health is, apparently, linked in part to the device I hold in my hand 99% of the time. Who knew?

Once upon a time, there was a blog called Further Up and Further In.

But it was not the Further Up and Further In that you are thinking of. No... it was a completely different blog, set in a completely different place in time. This blog was run by Narniagirl, a girl you may not think you know but whom you actually do.

That Further Up and Further In (FUFI) blog came into the world in 2006, and was faithfully upkept until the land that the blog lived in was destroyed, making way for new things. Narniagirl was destitute. She searched for a place to go, and found a place where many of her friends had relocated. She set up housekeeping there in a small private cottage, and then opened up to the world, naming it FUFI just like her old home. Narniagirl herself however wanted a somewhat fresh start, so she renamed herself. Her name is now Sky, and she is typing this post at this very moment.

Although Narniagirl and the old FUFI hold fond memories, Sky is now moving on to a future full of bright hopes and many dreams. Narniagirl is a thing of the past, and she will be missed. But do not think of her with sorrow. Think of her as a wonderful memory that will live on... in the form of Sky. We will miss Narniagirl, but she is not dead! She is still around, just by a different name. (Me, people, that would be me.)

So, with that thought, R.I.P., Narniagirl.

Thank you for stopping by! I read every single comment and love them all. Seriously, it makes my day. I do my best to comment back!

My only rule is basic respect and honor. Disagreement is accepted, but hate and trolling is not. Otherwise, say what you need to say, and have fun. And don't forget to grab a free complimentary mint on your way out.
