So, I’m guessing some of you have noticed by now that I appear to have wandered off. Well, I’ve been thinking about it a bit lately, especially in the last week or so, and I’ve finally decided that, at the very least, it’s time for an extended break. When I started this site one year and two days ago I was in a bad way and I needed somewhere that was my own to be creative and be heard. Having this site provided that outlet. It allowed me to be me again and it gave me the validation I was missing in other aspects of my life. Of course, it didn’t do it on it’s own. Each and every visitor, every comment inspired feelings of confidence and worth that I had all but lost. None of you will ever know how grateful I am for your support and kind words, but you’ll have to trust me when I say that very simply, you “fixed” me.
In the meantime, I don’t intend to disappear entirely. I will still be here if you want to reach me and I’ll still be checking in on you so I don’t fall behind on all your various goings on. Not to mention that the Sumi pictures will still be posted when I have them, but I’m going to give myself the license to stop trying to post and to only do so when I really have something to show or say. Once again, thank you for visiting, thank you for staying, and thank you for reminding me how to be me again.
