That word, by the way? I don’t want to use it anymore: the big B-word. Right now, I’m referring to this as a collection of chronicles. The collection itself is a chronicle. I am chronicling. You, of course, are free to refer to it however you wish.
Why the hiatus?
I’ll be back, and better than ever!
I’m going through some personal things right now and need a break.
Nonspecific family issues.
Honestly, I’m going on a break because I’m scattered. I’m figuring shit out. I’m figuring out whether or not I should redact the word “shit.” My heart is undergoing shifts that I could never have anticipated. I went blonde because I found out that I couldn’t get a tattoo. I fainted on a plane last month. I was just diagnosed with a vitamin toxicity, am going to a chronic pain specialist, might have to see a neurologist. When people ask me how I’m doing, I say, “Great,” or, “Okay,” or, “I’ve been crying a lot, but a lot of stuff has been going really well.” I’m helping my friends. I’m helping my community. I don’t know what art is. I’m putting together my copywriting packages and asking myself, a la Alexandra Franzen, “What could I make that would be even more helpful?” I’m assembling my 2014 business plan. I’m working with my fabulous designer on a 2014 website redesign that’s going be museum-worthy. I’m releasing The Radical Sincerity Manifesto book soon. My dog is in major need of cuddles.
Will I be on social media? Probably. Am I going to continue to write to the mailing list? Almost certainly.
I’ll be back on December 3, 2013, which is also going to be the New Moon — which is when the seeds are planted for things to come.
