Thank you

I’ve been sitting here for a long time trying to figure out how to describe what the last few days have been like.  What I write, regardless of topic, is always deeply personal and a authentic piece of myself.  The sweet joy of being understood, regardless of whether they agree with me or not, is incredible.  The sharp pain of being misunderstood, regardless of whether they agree with me or not, is intense.  It’s been amazing to see so much kindness and so much, well … not kindness, expressed by the reading of the same words interpreted in vastly different ways.  No matter what, each of the 50,000+ people who read my post are now a small part of me, just as I am now a small part of them.  For the majority of those 50,000, I will fade right back into the background of their lives, probably never to be thought of again, but I will remember and learn from all of you for a long time.  Thank you for giving me a piece of yourself.

A huge welcome to those who are new and have chosen to stick around!  I’ll be back with a new post soon!

  1. I was going to write a comment on your last post thanking you for inspiring me to write my own blog post, but you beat me to it! But thank you anyway. It really means a lot that you read my blog and commented.
