I'm back, and it feels wonderful.

Not just back to blogging, but back to life. I'm not sure what it was about this past month or so, but I just felt stuck. I tried multiple times to express my feelings through writing and blogging, but I got nowhere. I felt disillusioned, anxious, and uncreative. It just wouldn't go away.

To borrow a phrase from my beloved Oskar Schell, I had "very heavy boots indeed."

Thankfully, the fog lifted, and I feel like I can breath again. I feel like I can emerge from my self-induced hibernation. As with anything, it's still a work in progress, but getting out of bed each day is no longer something I dread, and for right now, that's reason enough to celebrate.

Maybe one day I'll be able to put exactly how I felt into words. Maybe I'll share it here. Maybe I won't. But it's good to know that I have this outlet, and it's good to know that I have supportive friends here who are always willing to listen.

So, thank you for sticking with me. Thank you for writing blogs that helped inspire me to write again. And most of all, thank you for being there.

And, because I don't really have a picture to go with this post, Liz Lemon.


Sending each and every one of you love from the Mitten.
