It's been a long, painful few months, physically and mentally, one malady feeding into the other in a vicious cycle. Several times, I've seen the light at the end of the tunnel, only to get plowed into by a bullet train, and the metaphorical scraping myself off the rails? Not good times. But I see the light at the end of the tunnel again and this time I think it's blue sky and not a bullet train head light. So I hope to get this channel up and running again with the new year. Thanks to all of you who have stuck with me and have sent me well wishes in spite of my road-kill (train-kill?) induced silence. I love and appreciate you all. <3
