quality of life

at the end of the day

Something in me broke yesterday. I feel like a failure. I feel like a fool.

We’ll be okay. We have circled the wagons – we are supporting each other with deep kindness and compassion.

One way or another, grief is at the door. I cannot put off opening that door indefinitely.

    • Thank you, Katie. I wasn’t trying to be mysterious, we were just in the midst of it and it didn’t feel right making a public thing about it until we’d made a clear decision. Now I’m working on writing about it all.

      When I came here and posted just this one thing, I needed to say something, to feel seen, even though I’d been very quiet about what was going on. It’s amazing to feel the love and friendship that can travel through the internet, even with people I haven’t met and hugged in person. Those virtual hugs count, too. Thank you!

      (And even in this small way, it feels really good to put my fingers to the keyboard again. I’m coming back.)

      (And even in this small way, it feels really good to put my fingers to the keyboard again. I’m coming back. I am going to make that Instagram favourites post one of these days, too. I tried at the time, but was too overwhelmed with the details of the design – all brights? all bold colours? all black and white? all flowers? all textures? a mix? rearrange again. argh. It’s supposed to be a happy thing, yes? I’ll come back to it when it’s happy.)
