Thank you, thank you, a million times thank you for all the thoughtful responses I received to last week’s post about feeling lost. I can’t tell you how much every single message meant to me. It’s gratifying, of course, to know that my words touch people, even a few.
While I feel heartened and touched and deeply grateful, I’m still a little lost. I feel like I’m repeating myself. That argues for a break, clearly. At the same time, I know that the near-daily ritual of sitting down and writing something has become hugely important to me. I worry that stopping will be catastrophic because I’m so aware of the benefits of the practice. That argues against a break.
I’m going to split the difference which is either a happy hybrid or a total cop-out. I’m going to take the month of March off, with a plan to return in early April. The month of March also includes a week of family travel and some other stuff that is going on which I’ll write about soon. So the timing is good.
I’ll be reading and watching the sky and I look forward to returning here. Please know how much every single message means to me – both last week and in general. I mean that. Thank you.
See you soon.
