"It's been a long time. I shouldn't have left you without a dope beat to step to."

What is going on?! We have much to catch up on but this first communication is to say hi and do a [mental health] check in. How are you doing? How are you being? It is OKAY if you are not okay right now, trust me, I have not always been okay in this current time in world history! Taking it one day at a time, literally, has been my outlook to keep anxiety from consuming me. It is also OKAY if you are doing just fine in all this too or are somewhere in the middle of the two.

It has been at least 3 years since I wrote anything on here. A lot of life (there will be a post sharing what some of that life entailed) happened and somewhere in the midst of life going on, my desire to write packed up its belongings and went on strike. It often felt alien; a lot of my identity at the time was tied up in being a writer. This non writing season included a divine lesson in me being defined simply by me not in anything I did. I've learned that writing is creative expression of me, not THE essence of who I am. So a stillness, in regards to writing, settled in for a bit and I grew in some other areas which I am excited to share many of the ways I've grown.
