So first up, it’s that time of year: I’m heading to Playa Del Fuego from Thursday to Sunday. I have no cell reception and will be unreachable in pretty much every sense of the word. Thanks for being patient with waiting for responses, etc. till I return. Speaking of being patient, I also want to thank you for the past week. I went through a shitty med change that realllllly fucked with my head and it’s finally leaving my system, but I was in a bad way for a bit. So I apologize for being absent and quiet. I love you, I’m here for you, but I’ve gotta practice what I preach and take care of myself when I need it so I can be here for you in full as much as possible.
Are you feeling helpless after the Manchester tragedy? Here’s 50 ways to promote peace.
