dear new friends and old
i felt it was important to let you know, because we share so much and you all are my extended family, that an urgent and immediate family issue requires my immediate and full attention. considering that the sun rises and falls with this person in my life, my complete devotion is required to understand, and hopefully make some decisions to resolve this.
there are moments in our lives when we need to be there for someone else, unconditionally, listen intently and when every word spoken and every reassuring gesture made is crucial. when time slows to a crawl, because it’s important to fully understand every detail and nuance.
and sometimes we just need to do what’s right, regardless of the rippling consequences to the rest of our lives; this is one of those moments.
so i’ll need to step away from my day to day writing for now, i’m not sure how long this will take to resolve or where this will eventually lead, this is all new territory for me and everyone else involved.
i did begin a poem, it’s an ongoing project, before i became aware of this situation and coincidently it’s about communication, the connections we have with one another. it has become more important to continue this poem as each day passes, and at least for now, will be the only writing i will do.
i will be around, i’m sure as i get a surer grip on what this all entails, i will need to get out of my head and into yours, so i will continue reading your wonderful poetry and be inspired as always. and to all my many new friends over the past few weeks, please accept this message as an acknowledgement and thank you for following my poetry, at least until i visit your blog and tell you in person.
thank you all so very much
