Today I feel overwhelmingly grateful. I think it is a deep human need to simply be understood, you have fulfilled that for me completely. Do you remember when I wrote this post? I shared a drawing that I had been working on for several weeks prior, it was my companion through the unraveling of it all. Oh, those words. So precious to me.
I don't really know how to say thank you for all of the love and understanding that has poured through in the last day or so. Try as I might, words just aren't enough. I believe it is possible for a blog to be intimate and personal while remaining private, to share your heart and your process without revealing your entire story, it is what I strive for and I appreciate that you all understand that. There was no pressure to divulge more than I chose, no pressing questions. You are a graceful bunch, for sure. As a symbol of my gratitude, I'd like to share the most tangible, everlasting piece representing this chapter in my life. I had some prints made of this drawing and I'd love to sprinkle a few around. Would you care for one?
To everyone who visits here, quiet readers or regular commenters, you make this space more than I ever could on my own. If you'd like a chance to receive a print, please just leave a comment here. Simple. I will "draw" a few names early next week and announce the recipients on this post. Best of luck, and thank you. Each and every one of you.
Comments are now closed friends, thanks everyone. You are too kind.
anissa ljanta - i am one of those quiet appreciative regular readers of your blog...i only follow a few and yours is in the mix. as a blogger myself i understand the public/private dilemma and admire the dance of disclosure you do so gracefully (it seems from this end anyway!)...thanks for the quiet powerful inspiration your art brings me in my days walking the creative mama path.
Ladies, I will email you all shortly!
