Sometimes I actually miss tumblr. It was like this little community that got me through a few really strange years - first, living in hotels and later, living in pieces.
I wonder sometimes how certain people are, the ones who had tumblrs that affected me. Once in awhile I’ll sign on and check and within a matter of minutes, I’ve read a thread of complaints on something that really doesn’t matter, or seen something involving animals that I do not want to see. Human beings who think they’re God or who are angry at God or who stopped reading this because I capitalized the word God.
But sometimes, I wonder about all of you and I can’t help but hope that all of the growing pains you were experiencing or the stuff you were sorting out, is all shaken and settled into a beautiful place. And if it isn’t, I hope there’s the knowledge that it will get there and then other growing pains will ache until someday there aren’t any except the kind that make flowers bloom. (This is such a tumblr post.)
For a long time, I used the same image of myself for all my social media: face titled downward, eyes closed, hiding. In case you’ve been wondering, the picture above should catch you up to where I am now: eyes wide open, smile bright and curiosity as alive as ever.
You can always keep up with me here, where I’m blogging now. Or here, where I tweet way too much. Or - maybe wait for the random posts on this ol’ thing. Might be more fun ;)
