I'm Sorry

I don't know really how many regular readers there are of this blog, but if you're one of them, I thank you, and I want to apologize for not posting much lately.

See, I'm in one of those crisis-of-faith slumps I so often write about. Somehow I've been avoiding the blog entirely rather than being honest about it. Maybe that wasn't the right choice, and maybe I should have just come out and talked about what's been on my mind. In any case, I just thought I'd break the silence to tell you that I've been having trouble thinking positive thoughts, and so I figured it might be hard to write positive posts.

Nothing's really wrong, either. It's just kind of a funk. I've been frustrated by my fellow human beings lately, and been frustrated with our society's general rejection of art. While I know I'll get out of it, I'm just a little down in the dumps for now.

Anyway, I appreciate your patience, and I'll start posting again soon.

Thank you,
The Management

Gimme Bliss is a gift you offer to your readers. Anything you choose to give us, on any schedule you want, is valued and appreciated. I have said it to you before, but I reiterate: it is brave to write as you do, for the public and to give freely what you have gained through pain and effort. You are brave and good, and if you need to hold those qualities close to yourself for the time being, there is not one of us who reads your blog with honest eyes that would begrudge you that. When you're ready, I'll be here.

Dear Management,

I'm sorry you're in a funk. I'm sure it will pass, but I can definitely sympathize with the frustration of the present. I'm having an awful week myself. I hope your fellow human beings come around in the end.

I can't speak for all your readers, but I don't hold it against you if you need a rest.

@ erzsebet: Thank you so much for your kind words. I really appreciate it. I don't often feel brave, but I certainly am glad that you get something good out of this writing!

@ Sara: You're not the first person to tell me this has been a bad week. Hmmm, maybe something in the heavens is messing with all of us. I'm sorry to hear that *you're* having a bad week, and I hope your funk breaks soon, too.

I feel like the shadowy edges of mine are beginning to retreat, and I see a little more sunshine and optimism coming through. In the meantime, I thank you all for your support and I'll be back in effect soon.

Thanks again for reading (and commenting.) You have no idea how much it means. Really.

Just want to let you know how much I appreciate your writings! Hope you feel better soon. (I always hate being in a funk.) Whenever you are feeling better I will be looking forward to reading more from you. I so enjoy your honesty and insights and more than once you've helped me work through my own issues. Thanks for what you do!
