I know, I know. But I’ve got a really good reason.
My marriage didn’t make it y’all.
It really is for the best. I’ve had to take the time to self-heal in not such a great environment. I’ve also had to reflect on the things I’ve seen, the things I shouldn’t have seen, and the work that needs to be done to rebuild. I’m looking for another teaching position for next year and, as always, trying to find more ways to incorporate creativity into my daily life.
Isn’t it amazing how neutral somehow looks even more colorless when a dream dies?
Don’t get me wrong. I know my future looks 100% brighter. But, sometimes, even knowing that doesn’t always make getting through the present any less sucky. Sometimes, it’s even a moment by moment thing. It’s just the way some things are.
In between time, I play catch and release with the Girl Child out back. It’s summertime, after all.
She’s really good at it.
Fortunately, during this time I have friends that understand and bring a little sunshine back into the picture every now and again.
It’s called life folks, and sometimes, it gets a little real.
