How are you? I hope you are well.
Six weeks have gone by since I last showed my face in these parts… Time melts away it seems.
I’m writing today to let you know that we are good. My three children, my husband and myself are all safe and unharmed by the things mentioned in my last post. But since I’m bringing it up, I just want to say that the story belongs to someone else, someone for whom I care deeply. It is a very personal, painful and private story, and out of respect, I will not be going into it here on the blog. I know you understand.
As you probably guessed, I kinda turned my back on the computer six weeks ago. I’ve mostly ignored it since then. In recent days, I’ve come back to it again. I’ve managed to read through each one of your heartfelt messages. I want you to know that I am so grateful for your kind and consoling notes, your many healing words, and your constant support. The ordeal has definitely changed something in me. It has left me more cautious, and sadly, more distant. But I am still here.
So I have decided to go on with the blog. I can’t walk away from it. I have invested too much of myself here and if I walked away it would feel like I was abandoning myself, let alone my work or you. So I will be continuing this journey but in a more limited way. What that will look like exactly, I’m not quite sure yet. But you know what they say, right? Only time will tell.
