I just wanted to thank everyone who sent good wishes concerning my recent meltdown on the blog.
I am really bad about responding individually to comments, but if you've been reading here long, you already know that, so don't take offense if I don't respond to your note.
I also received a few emailed private messages of support. Those were totally unexpected but are cherished just the same.
Being a woman of a certain age, I don't much care what anyone thinks of me or what I think or do.
Society in general can "KMFA" in regard to who and what I am and what I do. Basically, "my religion" is to be a good person who tries hard not to hurt anyone else and if that ain't good enough for some people then too too bad and here's the remote so you can change the channel.
All that superficial stuff that's so important to the majority of those in our culture concerns me not. I often feel so out of step with the rest of our society and the majority of womankind. My worth is not dependent on the latest fashion and hairstyle, how small my dress size or what celebrity or sports team I identify with(none of them).
I know who I am and what matters in my life.
But now and again when my psyche is low things said can get to me. I guess that's true of everyone. And last week I was having one of those times so things said that don't usually bother me did, and tunneled down into my soul and made a mess of me at my core.
I really didn't want to stop blogging nor did I want to take it private.
This particular blog of mine has been up and running since 20 Jan 2009.
6+ years at this point.
It's been continually changing as I have changed over the years and it has enriched my life in ways I couldn't have imagined back in 2009 it would.
I think I am back on an even keel now, with a sturdy rudder. My sails may be in tatters but we journey on into the great unknown.
Sea monsters and trolls need not apply.
There are still many adventures to partake in so come along on the voyage. ;-)
