Thanks to All You Freaky Bloggers, and Then Some

Yet another contraption. Check out the shag carpet seat. Sweet.

Steve built this motorbike out of a lawnmower and god knows what else. Check out the shag carpet seat. Sweet.

Hey, I just wanted to extend my thanks to everyone who read my post about the death of my brother, and special appreciation to all who left their thoughts and condolences.

It’s a strange and terrible life event, obviously, but your support has really helped me work my way through the emotional morass. This whole blogging thing is in many ways bizarre.

I know, but don’t really know, so many people who are wonderful, intelligent, and caring individuals, people I will probably never meet in person and whose virtual hugs can never substitute for the real thing, but when I read ‘hugs’ in a comment I immediately feel the embrace of people who share common thoughts, emotions, and life experiences.

The fact that you take the time to read my musings on travel, parenthood, marriage, and life in general is humbling, inspiring, and affirming. So I just wanted to say ‘Thank you, thank you so much.’

And as this is all getting pretty maudlin, I also promise to get back to the business of dishing out real-life scrutinies of this whole parenting thing, hopefully useful information on travel destinations, and bits and bobs about kids and how best to screw them up.

Despite the poor quality, you can perhaps see that I am sticking out my tongue in this photo. Punk. Ass.

Cheers, everyone! You are the ones who make it all worthwhile!

  1. I know exactly what you mean about the ‘know but don’t really know’ phenomenon. It’s weird, distant but sometimes amazing, warm and real at the same time. Thanks for sharing these extra thoughts with us. Definitely take time and feel like you’re posting for you, not out of obligation or expectancy. Thinking of you guys.

  2. Take all the time you need, I know it is a tough road to travel and everyone’s experience is different. Tonight is our 2nd year anniversary of the loss of a dear family member and I understand and empathize with your feelings.
