I can’t tell you how long I sat staring at a blank computer screen before I finally got up the courage to type anything. When I finally did start writing, nothing seemed to fit. I felt like Tom Hanks in “You’ve Got Mail”, starting and deleting, starting and deleting. And in the end, I’ve decided to go with his character’s strategy: the truth.
I’m sorry I’ve been gone so long. I’ve had a rough year, full of death, but full of life, as well. It’s been… well… hard. Excruciatingly so. I lost myself, my creativity, my hope, my joy, for quite a long time. But more on that later, I promise.
Right now I want to focus on the positive. I woke up this morning for the first time in a long time with the smallest spark of excitement to create something, and I latched onto it like a lifeline. It was the first time I’d felt that in almost a year, and I have to admit: it felt wonderful.
