Sharing the Journey

Jake turned 11 yesterday. I can't believe my baby is 11.

I've been gone a long time. I'm sorry. I've been trying to hold in all that has been going on for me. Sit with it. Consider it.

Jake is a beautiful little boy. Ooops, young man. He wants to shave. He could, mind you, but we've been trying to tell him to wait as long as possible.

Being young is so hard. You always want to be older than you are. When you're old, you simply want to be young. Is anyone satisfied?

I've come to realize I've replicated my youth in my adulthood. It is something I'm writing a great deal about.

Yes, I have been writing.

Blogging is an interesting outlet for me. I get to say my deepest feelings to people near and far. I am the most honest when I write in this space.

There are times, when I cannot be that honest.

Forgive me.

Obama is seeking re-election. Japan is a tragedy. Libya is stunning, as well as the whole Middle East. I will write about those things. As always, with a touch of my personal experience.

But I realize I must hold some things in. I must hold them till they hurt.

I have been. Eventually, I will share that journey. I simply cannot right now.

I'm so glad I found your blog - you're a lovely writer, and we've got a lot in common, as I'm a semi-suburban lesbian mom (I only wish for the housewife part!)...

the shaving comment reminded me of years ago when the boys were at my house with allan and walter for dad's camp week, and they insisted on shaving like we did. we would lather them up and take the blades out of the razors and let them play shave. too funny that he is about to start for real! i think there are pictures somewhere, will have to try and dig them out for you.

welcome back, i know it has been a long and hard journey for you!just know how much we care about you.

It's nice to have you back on your blog...(your peeps in the cloud tend to worry).

Glad to see you're back -- sometimes writing a blog helps, sometimes not. I totally get that. But we sure have missed you. :-)

saw an advertisement for the Chihuly exhibit at MFA and thought of you.

glad you're back, at least in part, stranger friend.
