For those of you following this blog via RSS or just stopping by from time to time, I wanted to let you know I’m still about and quite near functional most of the time. The past, present and future has looked a bit daunting for some time. It’s still rather like that, but there is a bit of light now. I can’t say how valuable it is to talk to people who understand personally what you’re dealing with in your life. I can’t say how valuable it is, as well, to simply sit with people who haven’t shared your experience but are willing to stand beside you all the same. Sometimes just sitting quietly with someone who’s having a rough go of it can be incredibly comforting to that person. I’m bumbling about, but the people I’m referring to will no doubt understand.
