Thanks to those of you who stopped by and left comments wishing me well. It's time to close comments on this blog until such time as I'm up to writing once again. I don't know if/when that will happen. Before I do so, however, I have to mention my wonderful friend, Jason Lockhart. About six months ago, when I began to lose emotional stamina, he agreed to take charge of my blog as far as comments and publications are concerned. He has faithfully read and posted for me since that time. As I've seen nothing but wonderful, supportive words from those who have visited during that time, I'm assuming there were no visits or comments from those cyber-bullies who have left their pointless words here in the past (although, Jason has let me know about a number of spam comments linking to porn sites--dutifully deleted), but I appreciate Jason's willingness to screen everything for me. Should I begin blogging again at some point, I may ask him to continue in that role if he has the time. It's wonderful to have good friends one can trust and lean on occasionally. You're awesome, Jason, and I thank you.
My plan was to close comments after one month of announcing my intent to cease blogging for awhile. That day will come in about a week. Should anyone still be reading and have anything more to say--speak now or...well...you know the rest.
