every heart is built to bend and break


Truth be told, this coloring took me over a month to complete. Usually they take about a week. I've been dealing with some personal stuff lately, and many sources of joy in my life have fallen by the wayside, including this blog and the things I like to post on it, like my art, pictures of my cat, and now and then, something worth reading.

I can't promise that things are going to get better any time soon.  I've got my doctor's appointment this week, and it could lead to a lot of changes in my life, changes I'm not sure I'll feel like sharing here, even if I want to.  Time will tell.  For now, Oz sends his furry love to you all.  Thanks for reading.

That is beautiful. So lovely.

Maryann, I am but one reader of your blog, but I know that I speak for many when I say you are cherished. Your site is a bright spot that we visit during our crazy lives, and you always give us something new to listen to, something to laugh at, something to marvel at, and something to think about. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Take as much time as you need. Say whatever you want to say, and hold whatever silences you wish to hold. If you don't want to post, or if you only want to post pictures of toothpicks for the rest of the year-- this is your space to express what feels best for you. There is no judgement here. This is YOUR place. There is no need to perform, or entertain, or be anything that you don't have the energy for. At the same time, if your posts here can offer you any sort of solace or respite, I hope you will continue to blog.

Much, much love, to both Oz and yourself.
