I don’t have much time to write; which is sad, because writing is so important to me! I will say: today not only did I have a wonderful swim with the children, and the grouchy YMCA lifeguard from days previous acted totally pleasant and did not chastize my kids in every way (seriously!), but I also met another lifeguard L. who corrected Nels’ behavior with the utmost respect. When I approached her to thank her for this, we had a lovely conversation – while my children stayed in the shallow end (which meant I didn’t have to be six inches away from them in the pool). Afterwards a hot shower, a sunny day, a not-so-pleasant and very long wait for the bus, some delicious sopes, and then etc. etc.
Family responsibilities present themselves. Let me say: thank you readers who have both stuck around and totally respected this new thing – password-protected entries at the blog. Although I am aware in a way “I owe my readers nothing”, I am also aware my blog has changed abruptly in this small way, and not everyone will enjoy the experience. I feel so incredibly grateful for the readers who stick around, who comment, who read, who support. And I will be writing more soon – trust!
take whatever time u need – glad u had a good Y experience this time!
Happily hanging around and sending good wishes.
Love for you Kelly, Josh. I would love to receive a password if you are willing to give one to me.
Thank you! I’m so glad to have had a better outlook, and a better experience.
Thank you so much!
I will give you (and others) a password when it’s safe to do so – it really comes down to protecting other people, for now. Thanks for still reading!
Every time I see that password thingy, the hacker in me wants to try and guess it, which always reminds me of that Spaceballs luggage combination scene.
I have only commented once before, on the issue of depression. Yes, it’s Annie from Australia again. I read your blog as often as you post, it’s always a lovely thing, even when it isn’t (if that makes a lick of sense?;-D).
I’m not sure I understand what is going on, I’ve re-read entries multiple times and all I can garner is busyness and some other unmentionable things. Not that I hold issue with not understanding, I’m not trying to and I’m not asking for an explanation at all. It is no business of mine. All I hope is that I will be able to continue to read what you write, because, in no small way, it gives me hope and leads to thoughts and good things and introspection that I might not otherwise come by. I’m not good at understanding what I am feeling, but when you put certain things to word, I almost shout out and say, “By George, that is it!!!” Thank you for that. I am a person who is mostly alone, and without being able to talk to someone about…things, I love this connection I feel with what you write.
Thanks for maybe my biggest smile of the day. You go ahead and try. You see my post titles are a bit obscure at times, my passwords are too. 🙂
Thank you so much for commenting again! I seriously hope to be delivering some more public posts soon! I’ve been blogging many years and sometimes my blog sucks (altho’ maybe those are the same periods that some OTHERS are finding it awesome). Times like this I wish I’d built a blogroll so those who like my writing, but are currently finding it lacking, could click away there!
