Hello. I'm Sam. I live in London, ON and have been reading your blog regularly for almost a year. I never comment because I am shy and feel like I'll say something stupid and irrelevant. I see that other people have felt that way too. Silly, I know.
I decided to write to you today because I've been noticing that your entries have been sad again. I know you get 'those days' as you've named them. But they don't usually last this long. (I apologize for seeming like a crazy fan. I notice patterns.) I suppose I'm just curious and a bit concerned since I've grown to enjoy reading your stories. Is everything going alright in your world?
Please don't feel that you must respond. I am quite aware that it is not my business. Sometimes people just need to to talk and don't realize it. I'm just a concerned reader and admirer who hopes you are okay.
Thanks for the email, Sam. Strangely enough, this was not the only one like it.
I don't get TOO much mail from readers, but lately I have been. It's funny how strangers can be worried about someone they feel like they know. I do appreciate that concern.
To be perfectly honest, I'm just dealing with a lot of stress. It's been difficult, but I don't want to get into too many specifics on my blog. Some things I will absolutely allude to, but I tend to leave more personal information out. The reason being that it does not solely affect me, and I don't think readers will get any joy from reading about it.
Anyways, as the famous line goes "this, too, shall pass". And it will.
I apologize for making my posts depressy and annoying. Sometimes that can't be helped. I'll do my best to make them a bit more upbeat and positive. But please don't be angry if at times they just aren't. I'm human. And more flawed than I should be.
Thanks again for the kind words.
And Sam? Comment, damn you! My posts are irrelevant enough that nothing you say will make them any more so. :)
