It’s been a grueling year.
I wrote a book coming out this summer, called “Questions are the Answer”. I think that exhausted me more than I initially realized.
Even though I’ve done five books and have others in process, I have one in me that needs writing, and that’s my Z-Theory. It feels important to me. I need to imagine it, and I’ll do that on the beach.
I’ve been cartooning and campaigning for survivors of abuse, silencing, and shaming. I couldn’t have predicted how much silencing and shaming I myself would receive for that. It has been heartbreaking. But it has also made me realize where the root of the problem is: power and its privileges and abuses.
I facilitate an amazing online community called The Lasting Supper that requires, happily, a lot of my time and effort, and in order for me to be on my game, I could use a rest. It is meaningful, satisfying, but exhausting work. I know they’d want me to rest as well. Love you guys!
But, best of all, Lisa and I are celebrating our 35th anniversary on May 4. She got a student loan rebate, and rather than spend it on something sensible, like new siding for the house, she decided to take me on a vacation and make memories.
I’ll be back soon.
