The only thing I can really count on around here is that things are always changing rapidly. There’s always a lot going on internally (and externally, no doubt), so all the moving parts of my life make for a wild ride. 😎
You guys, things are looking up. I’ve had some massive integration recently, and the healing process is in an upward shift for me – FINALLY! I know my last post or two was a little grim, and February and March were extremely stressful for me. But now, at last, a lot of key pieces have been falling into place with my healing. Things I’d been working for 2+ years to accomplish in my system are DONE. Done, you guys!!
Speaking of time, I don’t have a ton of it lately, because there are several things happening in the outside world that demand a lot more of me for the time being. I’ve taken on additional tasks at work due to a co-worker being gone for a few months, I’m moving to a new house (or apartment…TBD) in a month or two, and I’ve been spending more time communicating one-on-one with people than I used to. These are good things, but it doesn’t leave a lot of time left for the banal things, like, you know…sleeping, thinking, and writing. 😉 Haha! But if anyone has burning questions that need privacy, I’ll do what I can to make the time.
Also, as a point of interest: I have an outline for book #2! That was my big secret from the other day. I really wanted to wait until Dear Little Ones is out before I focus on this next thing. I’m getting rather frustrated with the illustrator at this point, but still trying to believe the best.
Trust me, I want this book out there as badly as you do! But anyhow, I’ve got book #2 already in the works – slightly different subject matter, but I’ll tell you more at a later date. Also, this one will be somewhat longer, but if I can somehow miraculously carve out the time, I may just illustrate this one myself, as even though the length will be greater, there may be fewer illustrations. Maybe just a few grand ones.
And sometimes, I just want to stop and enjoy the newness of freedom and unity and joy I’ve been finding lately. In our social-media-driven world, where everything is picture- or Facebook-worthy, sometimes I just want to experience things for awhile. Drink it all in. Soak it up. Think about it. Process.
Then I’ll write about it.
I do have some upcoming posts, though. Stay tuned.
