Life Lately.

I had to pull out the Swiffer and use some good ol' fashioned elbow grease to get the dust off of this thing.

It's been seemingly forever since I've written a word, and man, I sure have missed it.

Writing is hard work though. It's hard enough when you feel you have nothing to say. But, it's darn near impossible when you feel you have everything to say, and just no energy to do so.

The climate of our world is changing, and getting nastier by the moment. Facebook friend lists are diminishing by the second (I'm guilty of purging of few myself). And everyone is pointing their finger at someone else.

It has been the single most overwhelming time of my life. I'm overly sensitive, you see. I cry at commercials, books, movies, songs, memes on the internet, cute kids in the grocery store, homeless people on the street, basically EVERYTHING. So sometimes my heart feels like it's being broken every second of every day.

Sometimes I can step back and guard myself from the crushing weight of it all, and sometimes it sneaks up on me too quickly. Lately it's been much more of the latter, so I've had to take a step back to do some self reflection. That self reflection, has led me back here. This is a safe place for me. A retreat. So I intend to be back more regularly. And I do hope you all will join me.
