Some year

This is going to be a weird blog post. I am going to attempt something that probably can’t be done. I will try to tell you something very important without saying anything much.

Seat belt buckled? Right. Here we go.

An entire year has gone by since my last update. And I have nothing much to show for it. I am still writing a book, but aside from that… You know.


Actually you don’t know the first of it.

This past year has been crazy.

I am not going to share the details. But I want you to know that I was not simply caught up in the easy life of no obligations and nothing to do. Nor did I lose it due to World of Warcraft and too much cola. Nothing of the sort.

What happened is that I stumbled over life.

And for a long time – many months – it was one big mess. Old stuff, new stuff, existential stuff. All jumbled up.

What I am trying to say is this: I have been working rather hard to untangle that knot. And I know you can’t see it. Sometimes it is like that.

So I ask you to simply trust me.

I had a rough year.

I had some help. I am so grateful for that. Sometimes words just don’t cut it.

Things are better. A lot better. I have learned quite a bit. I think I have changed.

And …the book? I am getting there. I really am.

I know this is all pretty last year.

Thank you for trusting me and sticking up with me. It means the world to me.

I wish you all a great 2016!
