A Dark, Dark Place

I’m not sure if anyone still visits this space, but over the past few days, I have been feeling that I really need to explain my extremely long absence and silence on this blog.

It’s funny how blogging and social networking always brings out the happy in people.  All of the other stuff is usually shoved into the unspoken box.  I am guilty of the same thing.  Of course, life has its own bumps and curves mixed with the happy.  And, when the bumps and curves suddenly hurtled our family down a steep emotional cliff, it was like I didn’t have anything left to say because all that was left was an overwhelming void.  We are so grateful, that the worst has passed.  For the first time I really understood the true meaning of Life.Lemons.Lemonade.

Yesterday, I picked up my knitting again after weeks and the familiar movement of twisting yarn into a series of intertwined knots was like chicken soup :: warm, comforting, healing.

I can spy bright skies ahead
