It bites. It stings. 

Clearly it’s been ages since I posted here. Anywhere, really… There’s a reason for that but I don’t want to get into it right now. 

For now I’ll stick with current events rather than rehash all that’s happened in the last few months (although I can easily sum that up with this short quote, too). It’s been a few weeks of rereading favorite Stephen King novels. This is one of my favorite quotes…

Pretty simple and realistic, I think…and that’s how I’m enjoying keeping things for myself and my life these days. Not much else to say for now besides that.

I hope that this post finds you doing well. I hope it finds any readers at all at this point – I fear most of you may have wandered away by now, though I hope not. It’s encouraging to receive the odd email every now and again from you. Maybe we’ll keep in touch more consistently – at least for the time being? I hope so.

Lots of love to all,

  1. Hey friend! Good to see you. That is a powerful quote. And from one of my favorite books of not only King’s but of all time! Such a good story! I had to take some time off from social media because of my own demons. I’ll spare you all that but it’s good to see you! And I hope you’re okay.

    1. AGREED! It’s my favorite work of his and probably in my top 3 favorite books of all time, along with his Dr. Sleep.

      Yep – me, too, as far as social media. That’s why it was such a serendipitous thing when I saw that my art accounts were gone and not by my own hand. 😂 I felt…almost relief, like a pressure valve had been opened. I’d lost the joy in sharing my images because of the judgment and pressure. That’s gone now. There was so much negative energy associated with all those accounts, because of where I’d been and come to whilst using them. So much grief dumped into them from deaths and losses. Creating the cg_mextures one, that is not there. It’s clean. There none of that leftover grief energy – I still grieve but it’s not deep-seeded and absorbed into that space now, if that makes sense.

      It’s good to hear from you – glad to still be connected with you here. You’re a good friend. I hope things are going well for you now. 🙏🏼🙏🏼


      1. I loved Doctor Sleep too! One of the best sequels I could have imagined for The Shining. I didn’t get as much into his Mr. Mercedes series, but I am looking forward to the Dark Tower movie adaptation. Those books were my favorite from him (also 11/22/63). The series is pretty good too on Hulu. Some of it I didn’t care for but James Franco was great for that role.

        I made the decision to completely get off of social media as I began to realize that it was somewhere at the root of every pain and anxious moment I had felt. There were things that happened TO me, but as far as social media went, it just felt like I was either doomed to self-destruction or caught up in drama I didn’t need. Coming off of it has been a relief. I think of blogging again but so far I don’t have it in me. But I hope you will keep on. Because you have great content.

        I’m doing much better and hope you’re doing well these days! And finding some zen.
