Well, shucks! Break out the Scooby snacks. WordPress sent me a Congratulations on Two Years just now.
I laughed a little when I got the message. I’ve not posted much lately, but have a ton of half-written drafts awaiting publish.
My voice inside has been unusually calm and not because I haven’t had anything useful to say. Most of my energy lately has been consumed by precocious third-graders. I’ve really enjoyed volunteering in a reading group, watching them grow in phases. Helping children learn seemed to foster a sense of recovery my own methods of recovery fell short of. Recovery writing can turn (me) into a hermit crab. It was hard to get out of my PTSD shell, but I did it, and it felt great.
And now it’s over (until next year), but I truly enjoyed this year’s teacher, who was such an inspirational woman and glued me back together on my birthday with such care. I haven’t posted about that, yet.
For anyone who noticed.. yes, my archives only go back to October of 2012, here. I’ve been a WordPress member since June of 2012 and ran an anonymous blog about the daily life of me. It was blunt, and raw, a documentation journal, and probably the second most terrifying and liberating experience I’ve ever had.
