I shall miss your words but my heart is full for you and your family. All the love for you, my dear, and I look forward to more nerdly adventures in the future.

Even if I can't agree with you about Cadbury Eggs.

I'm going to miss your words, kiddo. Rarely have I seen such a talented, inspiring, and supportive writer, and while I'm incredibly happy for you and your family, this place is going to be just a little drabber until you make it back.

Cadbury Eggs rock, for real.

I've always fangirled over so much of your brilliance and writing, I am so sorry to see you go (for now) but it's for such an awesome reason. Best of luck to you and yours in this adventure and may you get plenty of sleep in the coming days!

^Yesssss. Maybe Lucy needs to get Fin high, take him to a drum circle where he can jam, and then there should be hugging. Lots and lots of hugging.

There's a quote that I like by Anais Nin, "We write to taste life twice, in the moment, and in retrospect," and I think that sometimes we write to dilute the harsher flavors that get mixed in throughout the course of our time on earth.

My father passed away Friday. It was an unexpected series of hopeful moments and setbacks over the course of 6 weeks that ended with a drive deep into the countryside of East Tennessee yesterday to bury him next to his mother, an English teacher, and his father, a preacher who traveled the church circuit in thirties and forties.

The past few months have been a whirlwind of life stresses, from my father's sudden illness to the birth of my twins and trying to wrangle them along with a four-year-old while remaining sane (a task I fail daily). This forum has been a haven and an escape, and as I watched soft green hills roll by out the passenger window the other day, I thought I might finally have to throw in the towel and check out for good. I had no words left in me, nor the desire to try to stir them up again. Then I got home, and I sat out on my back porch listening to the crickets chirp and the neighbors swim and I thought about all the stories I've written here, and the ones I still want to write, and even though I'm not very active writing-wise at the moment, I decided I'd like to keep posting the logs of months past as I've been doing. It gives me something to look forward to and reminds me that things carry on.

I'm grateful for this small corner of the internet where I can toss my own flavors, be they bitter or sweet or some amalgam of both, into the mix.

There are no perfect words of condolence for such moments of loss, and the ones that come most naturally never feel like enough. Still, I'm sorry, dear.

Your message was, although written from mourning, beautiful to read, as are most of the things you write. We are richer for your presence, even if just in the echoes while your heart is heavy. We are grateful for those too.

Hug your babies, we'll be here. As always, miss you.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss and the curveballs that life is throwing your way.

Take whatever time you need and when you are ready or when you need an ear or just need a distraction, there are a lot of us who will be here.

I wish your family the very best and hope to be able to continue reading your beautiful words.

Hey all. I am leaving the country for a wee vacation. Going to Scotland to soak up some Fin vibes and otherwise have a grand time.

I will be back in the first week of October, wherein Fin's sad psychodrama will continue. There will be tons of pics for any that want to see them.

Bon Voyage! Until tomorrow and tomorrow.

Just dropping a line in here to say...I'm still around. Lurking mostly behind the scenes and reading all the good stuff that goes up on the various boards around here.

In particular, I've been enjoying Fin's journey at Hamilton House. Enjoy is not really the right word, but yanno. The juxtaposition of Cris and Fin is always fascinating to me.

Also, Cris's post A Thousand Words, which of course did a number on my feelings. I believe my initial response to the writer was something along the lines of, "*** you, you *** jerk."

I've got a loose deadline in my head for Ketch's return, provided life maintains a more balanced keel. I look forward to him coming back. He's missed so very much in his absence.
