I will do a paperback version of the book as well, even if just so that I can hold my own book in my hand one day. But for the moment, I can’t say when I will be able to get this work done.
As some of you know, I have chronic fatigue syndrome, but I’m required to work as much as I can. So I have been trying to build up my work hours, and something has got to give. Currently, I’m struggling with severe mental and physical backlash from working. I’m no longer able to give as much effort to my creative practice.
I have to take a step back from my blog, my social media, all my lovely plans that I had made, and all you lovely people who pour so much creative joy into the world each day.
It may seem strange to just drop this book here, and then say goodbye, or see you later. But that’s the way it has to be for now. I’m completely overwhelmed. We are not free in this world. We have responsibilities that we can’t choose.
I hope my body and brain adjusts to the increase in activity, and that in the near future I will be able to both work and be here to share and read more poetry. In the mean time, take good care of yourselves, and don’t let the b’s grind you down!
