Back from Sabbatical – At Least for Now!
I haven't posted here on Persona Paper in quite a while, and to be honest I haven't even been logging in lately. I'm feeling a little down about my online writing lately, particularly with two of my best sites going through tough times and talking about things like rate decreases and having to ban some countries because traffic from those regions isn't paying out.
There have been personal things to attend to, as well. I've been crocheting Easter gifts and trying to help the kids keep up with increasing demands at school. I've been doing a lot of research for MamaOzzy3881 as she prepares for her final year of high school , and trying to help her plan for her academic future. I remember things being a lot more cut and dried when I was her age!
The biggest preoccupation, though, is the hospitalization of a dear friend from back home in Montreal. It's not mine to make the details of his condition public, but what I can say is that he's been unconscious and has suffered what may be permanent damage to his brain and organs.
It's been tough to focus while I sit here waiting for the next update, knowing that I can't even go to him and hold his hand or make a casserole for his mother to take home so she doesn't have to cook. It's even tougher to focus on writing!
I won't say he's out of the woods yet, but I did get some good news yesterday that gives us reason to hope for the best. So today I feel a lot more centered, and able to focus on writing. I hope that will mean I can catch up with everyone on my writing sites.
