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.
