I hate to do this, especially for the readers who tune in every day or even more frequently... but my blog is going dark. Not permanently, but for a week or so. I'm taking a small "Blog-Holiday". I've been promising myself a vacation from the internet for months. I think this week is a good week to do it. I can think and clean... settle back in and pray for this world. I insulate myself from the news because every time I see reports of child molesters or animal cruelty or nuclear meltdowns or ecological disasters... it breaks my heart. I know people who say, "it breaks my heart" at the drop of a pencil or the spill of some salt, but when I see entire countries devastated or ecosystems reduced to piles of black sludge... it truly and most profoundly breaks my heart. I spiral away into dark moods and deep sadness.
So, I'm going to go away for awhile. It'll be good to reconnect to my home and spend time snuggling the cats. It'll be a treat to play with them until their pink paw-pads are rosy red, and most splendidly – to make things. I've already arranged for some posts to appear in my absence... so it'll be like I'm not completely gone.
As far as my shop goes... orders will still go out. (Don't forget that there's a St. Patrick's Day sale still going on!) But I'm also taking a break from my email. So all correspondence will stop until I "go live" again. If you really need me, text me and alert me to your query. I'll respond back shortly.
