Sadhvi Sez “Adieu”!


While it’s been wonderful to share what’s  been going on in my world all these years, I don’t feel like sharing anything of me anymore.

So after more than 5 years and 210 posts, it’s time for me to leave Oops50.

Call it a coincidence, but The New York Times had an article recently on blogging burnout, and there is even a new word to describe it called “slog”.  Maybe that’s all it is; I’m just tired of sharing my world, myself…

I want to let all of you faithful fans know that it has been a pleasure to share with you things that mattered to me during this time of my life.  And to wish the women of Oops50 much success!

I’ll leave you with one last clip from a man named Vereesh (see below), and wishes for Peace, Love, And the Pursuit of Happiness to you all.

About Sadhvi

Sadhvi's trying to find the balance in life over 50 without having any surgery, taking any pills, or killing anyone. She doesn't want to look or feel the way she felt when she was 20 or 30. Trusting that everything is really OK unless you think about it helps her make it through each day. Also realizing that nothing can be done, and, that nothing matters really helps. Gardening (and weeding), poppies and flowers, painting on things, baking, and sharing on Oops50 helps to make it all right too.

  1. @Ronnie: @ everyone: thanks for your support and was touched by all your comments! Yes, I have enjoyed writing, but glad you all understand that I need to take a break at my age!

  2. Sadhvi, oh blessed wordsmith! I have enjoyed and relished your juicy, spicy , sweet and sometimes irreverent observations on the goings on here on twenty first century planet Earth, USA, for lo, these last 5 years and will miss the creativity and independent spirit behind the stories. Enjoy your freedom and the open space to come! Warmly, Ronnie

  3. Thank you, Sadhvi, for all you have shared these past years – your thoughtful and thought-provoking words of wisdom, your beautiful photos, your wonderful recipes, the eggs from your sweet hens, the bounty from your garden… So glad we are neighbors and friends! With love and gratitude, Pam

    I so much enjoyed reading your blog and seeing the beautiful pictures you have shared!
    I am sure many women have been blessed by the things you have shared……one being me!

  5. It is still a bit of a surprise & sense of loss knowing you reached this decision. But good for you since that is where you are with the blog!

  6. So sorry to hear you’re leaving Oops 50 because I’ve enjoyed your thoughts which almost always reflect mine and so nice to see them so eloquently written. Thanks for all your efforts with the blog and I wish you well.

  7. I have loved your thoughts and beautiful garden pictures over the years. Don’t know if you got my email or if it went to junk, but I am grateful that I was blessed to know you during my time in Asheville. All good things to you Sadhvi! MJ

  8. My hubby and I will miss your posts on Oops. We always awaited your post to wake us up somehow. Sometimes in life we have to take another path – whatever that may be. There is YOU that you must take care of – not try to be what other people want you to be. We love you – hugs

  9. Well now what am I to read when I clean out my e mail? You know all good things come to an end. Hmm seems I have an old underwood typewriter myself. Much like it I am getting a bit dated also. So now I wish you all the peace that I can send. Take care and may your garden grow as much as your soul.

  10. We will miss you, dear friend, but we get it! All the best to you in your future journeys. You have to still meet us for lunch, now and then!!!

  11. Thanks for all the great posts you’ve given us, Sadhvi! I wish you every blessing and hope this means you’ll be more available to be seen around Asheville! Good job!! ♥ Amana
