I’ve had this little blog for 12 years. Recently, I went through and made just about my entire archive private. It was time for some of those weird, incomprehensible early posts to stop living on the internet and it was time for other reasons. I’m all grown up and a different writer now than I was back then. I do, however, stand by everything I’ve written, even the really terribly overwrought stuff, maybe especially that. As far as diaries go, this one is the longest I’ve ever been able to keep consistently and I hope I’ll be able to keep writing here until we can use our mind writers and my grandchildren are telling me, “No, grandma, you just think it. NO, NOT THAT WAY.” All of this is to say, occasionally a post is going to pop here that is password protected. It’s not my favorite thing. I HATE having to ask for a password when I’m reading a blog and there’s a post that’s protected, so I get it. But I also need to be able to write somewhere that’s safe and that I can share with a limited audience. I hope you understand. Finally, I’ll leave you with this Anne Lamott quote that I find useful in times like this.
“You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories. If people wanted you to write warmly about them, they should have behaved better.” – ANNE LAMOTT
