Still Alive…

No, I’m not dead, and I haven’t abandoned my blog. Or rather, I don’t intend to abandon my blog. But I’ve definitely been scarce here, and expect to continue to be for the next month or two.

The short version of what’s going on is that I have a number of pretty huge transitions brewing in my personal life — an impending divorce, a move to another (nearby) city, a new job. Add to those the ordinary challenges of raising a teenager and…well, I don’t have a lot of spare bandwidth right now.

So, to all of my loyal readers, I wanted to say something: This too shall pass, but probably not right away. I’ll try to get back to semi-regular posting, but tending to these other priorities has to be my focus right now. Thank you for bearing with me.

What’s happening with you all? Anything you’d like to see me talk about in the next little while? Personal transition can be a lonely business, and I’d love to hear from you in the comments.

    After transitioning to a new life that involved a divorce and a move three states away, along with a new job – which turned out to be me starting my own business, because jobs were scarce… – I can tell you that yes, this too shall pass. Roll with it and take all the time you need… and know that you are not alone.
    A gentle hug to you, dear.

    In 1983 I was where you are today. No, you don’t have time to blog. Take all the time you need. I, and I expect most of your readers, will be here when you come out the other side and are ready to get back to us. As you say, this too shall pass. Please know you are not alone. Many of us have gone before you and many more shall follow. Best of luck in the meantime.

  3. Agreed, take care of yourself, and the personal stuff, first. Take time for yourself too.

    Here is an idea: Have you ever shot in the dark? How about using a light source? We have a couple of handgun night matches, and they can be a real eye opener. In a couple of weeks the boys (11 and 13) will be doing a night 3 Gun match; our first one. This should be interesting..

  4. Glad to see you back. Check in once in a while and write a sentence or two if you don’t have time for more. It can be therapeutic to share even that much. In any case, I’ll keep clicking in at least once a day, thinking of you and wishing you the best. šŸ™‚

  5. Glad to see you are still kicking! I thought maybe you being alive was an April Fools thing at first. Just kidding. Hope you are doing well. Sorry about the pending stuff. If you are lonely shoot me an email or give me a call. Sorry everything isn’t roses right now, but as they say, the sun will come out tomorrow (or was that a song?). Anyways, enjoy the new season of your life.

  6. Still checking in every day. šŸ™‚

  7. There is indeed life after divorce. I’ve been married the second time for 35 years now. Best years of my life. Take your time and give thanks for each new day and the good things in it.
