I finally blew off the layer of dust that’s been resting on my blog during my unplanned hiatus. I will be working my way back slowly and reliving some of my memories through a series of photographs and words. For most parts, I’ll be taming the butterflies in my stomach due to wanderlust tickling my feet again, but for some, I might find tears well up in my eyes.
This time last year, I was in the midst of things which all happened very suddenly, constantly and seemingly without warning. I was overcome with emotions I didn’t quite know how to digest and I just wanted to shut my eyes and disappear for a while. I remember my various attempts to create posts for this blog but deleting every single one of them at the end of the day because of this … feeling. It was occupying a significant space in my heart like an acquaintance who never knew when to leave. Now when I think about it, I realized that the question was never about when it was going to finally leave, but rather why I chose to let it stay.
I’m busier than I’ve ever been but I am in the process of reinterpreting the word ‘busy’ to encompass vital breaks. So although this post has had many false starts, it doesn’t matter anymore.
Happy third anniversary Anchor it down.
Thanks for reading and to all those who’ve stuck around.
