It’s not a play on words. I missed this blog so much! It is a space where I can write about things that are important to me. That I believe are also important to you, my blog readers. It was gone for quite a while and I felt a true loss that is hard to put into words. For it to be back up now and be able to write here again, it is like reconnecting with a long lost friend. My Blog How I have missed you!
I took some time last year to get some stuff sorted, not fixed because nothing was broken, but improve because there is always room for that. I shifted more focus than I should have away from writing, publishing, and promoting. The intent to come back to this when it was all right was there, but then I got really sick. My kidney function dropped, I caught several infections, and it took me longer than expected to recover.
It was radio silence here the whole time and I have to be honest. Not having this space to write in when I had stuff to share was more than a little depressing. Being depressed didn’t help with my ability to heal. It took a really long time for me to get stable. Then I had to adjust to living with a new kind of normal. I will live, but it won’t be the same as it was.
Sure, I could write in a word document or a notebook easily enough. It doesn’t carry the same weight as writing here, though. I am talking to people here. It is a conversation rather than a one sided word vomit, and the ability to have and do that matters a lot to me.
So, I am saying it again. My blog how I have missed you and I am glad you are back. There are more literary adventures to go on. More experiences and information to share. More time in this space and I am so very grateful for that.
