Sorry for the vanishing act, Innmates. Not really sure exactly how to explain this one other than to say I've been in a bad place for a while and, as such, have been unfit for human consumption...I'm finally feeling better all around, though, and should be showing my goofy face hereabouts once more.
Again, my apologies for leaving you all hanging while my "Eolness" got darkened over... See you very soon.
As I've noted in PMs to more than one of you fantabulous and much beloved Innmates; due to a series of events and circumstances, I found myself in a seriously miserable state of depression that I had a hard time getting out of - I won't bore you all with the details (and it's probably better that I don't try and revisit too much of it, anyway) but, suffice it to say, I've never felt that miserable and it just about got the best of me...
Just about... but, of course, in the end, I was reminded of my "indestructibility" and managed to get myself sorted out. Thanks to all of you Innmates who were putting out the love and good vibes for me. I'm sure it was a major factor in getting me back on my feet and making me realize that the hole I was in wasn't quite as deep as it felt and helped me drag myself out.
Now, I just need to dust some things off down here in the basement, brew up an extra strong pot of that greenish coffee I'm so fond of, and I'll be back to posting in a jiffy.
Hugs and love all around, Innmates! You're all amazing to me and I appreciate each and every one of you more than you can possibly know.
