Message in a bottle

Comments

I’m alive, and though it would be a stretch to say I’m feeling great, things are getting better. I know that the last entry was cryptic and worrisome to some folks, and as with many things, it looked worse on the internet.

It’s true, though, that a couple weeks ago, I was a complete wreck — hit a large number of low-karma points at the same time, and for awhile was dancing at the edge of scary places. It’s gotten better since then, but it’s been difficult getting back into the swing of things, this blog included.

One thing at a time, as they say.

It hasn’t been all bad, mind you. There’s been plenty to smile about in the meantime: family visiting, adventures on the ski slopes, good food, good friends. It’s all been part of the road from there to here. I’d meant to post about all that, but part of me felt guilty about having some fun when there was this cloud of bad things still hovering in the background, so it’s been slow in coming out. I’ll get around to that over the next few days. Promise.

So I’m okay. No April Fool’s. Smile!
