Absence Explained, 2012 Embraced

I did not take an intentional hiatus from blogging, but rather had a Fall season fraught with emotional and physical difficulties.  I continued as usual with my visual journal, but unfortunately my blog dropped off the map.

My Nana died just before my 50th birthday.  Her ashes are now sealed inside her favourite English teapot.

I’m still sorting out my own health issue and will be having a surgical procedure sometime over the next couple of months.

Our dog Chica was diagnosed with Cushing’s Disease and now has a plethora of health issues, although she remains a spry 13 year old with no idea that she’s sick.

There’s more – much more – but why dwell on it?  Despite a few months of grief and upset, I remain extremely fortunate and privileged.  And I threw myself an amazing 50th birthday party that was a Facebook phenomenon (although since I’m not a Facebooker, I cannot independently verify this fact).

Here’s hoping 2012 is bright and promising.
