It’s with sadness that I say good-bye.
It’s taken me months of soul searching to finally allow myself to let go of Her Two Scents. Often when I vowed that this would be it I used several reasons to convince (force, threaten) myself to keep it going and the biggest reason was that I had invested so much time and benefitted from a certain amount of satisfaction in writing the articles so why stop now? And that’s what convinced me that I needed to let it go, the blog began feeling more like a “should” and life’s too precious to fill it with “shoulds”. Of course I realize that there are some “shoulds” that need to be followed through with and there in lies the rub of the wisdom of living, knowing, choosing, deciding which of those to keep and which to let go. That’s why it was so hard.
I will continue the scent journey as a personal exploration of the senses to enhance my other passions and simply for the love of perfume but I no longer feel the burning need to share my artistic journey with anyone else but myself. While it may not be true for everyone it is for me, I’ve learned, that one is either making art or talking about it. The more this truth washed over me the less I wrote because it takes an inordinate amount of time to evalute, put together and write the posts — time that could be better used learning and perfecting my art and just living life.
The blog will remain up and accessible until October when the hosting expires but the FaceBook account linked to H2S (which is the only FB account I have) will be closed by Friday.
It’s been a joy sharing my perfume journey with you, I hope it’s served you well in some way and I encourage you to continue your own scent explorations with a passion!
I thank each and every one of you who has supported this blog. So, this is me sending you a big, warm hug and wishing you all the very best in whatever you choose to do!
