DECEMBER and AFTER

There are some things I can write about now that I once thought I'd never be able to, stories of loss and learning and growth and my own failures and successes. But, there remains one I cannot give words to and until I can, I am going to be taking a break from this online world. My whole life has shifted--high tide and hailstorms ever since September, but I am still navigating myself through the harsh currents. I don't pretend I have great skill with it, in fact, I am standing knee-deep in mistakes and bailing like hell to keep it all afloat. But, isn't that just a part of the journey sometimes? The horizon is still there--as steady as ever, and so is my impulse to keep rowing until I reach safe harbor. I'll be sure to drop a little note in a bottle on the sea--just as soon as I do.
Love,
D.

I wish you safe sailing and trust absolutely that when you find your way to shore it will be with strength and wisdom on your side.

I'm also about to take a break from the blog world so when/if I return I will look about for you.

Hope you don't ever get so tired of rowing that you stop-your tenacity is amazing and inspiring. Keep rowing.

Thinking of you in your hailstorms. When you're ready and if it's right, maybe you will write your story--or maybe you will just decide to hold it close.

Peace and love to you in the new year.

I've been a very sporadic visitor, and less frequent commenter on many blogs over the past months, so missed this word. I hope the turmoil is easing, that the new year is bringing new possibilities, and that you will be well in every way possible. Blessings to you.

I am new to your blog, but just have to say that although your journey likely has nothing in common with my own - I can relate in a very real way to what you wrote.
