Blog-a-versary

Today is my 176th post

AND

One Year Blog-a-versary!

Never in my life have I ever come close to keeping a journal for even a few months.
I am amazed and mystified at blogland and what I have found here.

I have found friendship.  True friendship.

I have found sisters and brothers among you who I consider closer than my closest vanilla friends.

I have found support and kindness.

I have found some heartbreak with blog-friendships gone awry.

I have found release and freedom from being able to share a side of me that I've not been able to before.




I have not been around blog land for the past couple of weeks.
I have had a great deal of change in my personal life and found great sadness and loss.
(Sir Q and I are doing just fine as are our progeny)

I am currently feeling quite broken.
I hope to heal and to be back shortly.
I just need time to be sad and to morn.

My thanks to all of you who read.
My abundant appreciation to those who have commented over the past year.
My love to my friends here in blogland.

  14. Beloved friend, happy blogging anniversary. This corner of the blogosphere would have remained empty and lifeless had you not come along to fill it with your unique and sexy=hot voice. I'm glad to have "met" you...and look forward to more adventures. I'm so so sorry for your loss, and know that I am sending you a constant wave of blue healing light...I think of you often and bounce you a hug...
