Goodnight Moon

I have decided to stay.

Yet I have been so busy it has been hard to inform the 3 of you who still read me that I am staying. ;)

I dug up my old blog that I wrote from 2005-2008 when I was in the throws of defending my dissertation and trying to navigate the crazy new world as a fresh faced PhD. It was nice to go back and have that snapshot of who I was back then, and remember what I used to be like before the grief clouded up my vision. And part of reading that blog again was also like watching a movie that is based on a true story, and you are flinching as the entries get closer to January 2008.

When I was pregnant with Henry this last go round, I couldn't write to save my life. Not a blog or a short story. I am a writer by nature. I can't go a few days without a story or scene fleshing out in my mind. I have been this was for 30 years. When I lost that for 9 months, it really scared the crap out of me. I felt frozen in time with no dreams or ideas. I still don't know what caused the writer's block, but the fog has lifted, and I wish to embrace it.

So, I hope to be around a little more. I hope you will join me....
