Well, lately my life has been . . . interesting.
I will probably want to talk about it someday.
Perhaps even someday soon.
But not today.
Today I just want to say that I and all my family are well and fine.
In fact, I feel more peaceful and content than I have felt in a long time.
I have so very much missed being online, and missed my many dear online friends, more than words can say. Being absent has felt at times empty and lonely. Though I have a loving family around me, you, my online friends, have become important to me, too. I hope to reconnect with many of you.
I had reasons for my absence, interesting reasons. I'm still processing information and sorting through all my thoughts and feelings in my own slow, methodical way. I am generally a careful and cautious person, gathering my own evidence and coming to my own conclusions.
Interestingly, Wikipedia has this further to say about the referenced proverb:
It is reported that it was the first of three curses of increasing severity, the other two being:
May you come to the attention of those in authority
May you find what you are looking for
Here's hoping for a less interesting life!
