It’s time to explain my long absence from the site, and why this work, which I love, isn’t being done.
I strive to post something at least every other day, and when things are going smoothly, daily. However, I do have a full-time job, a wife, and a daughter. Usually I’m able to jigger everything to allow me the time to read and then write. But for several weeks, almost a month now, I’ve been dealing with most everything in my life going wrong in some way, from the weather (I live in Minnesota, you wouldn’t believe the hours I’ve spent shoveling and snow blowing this month), to my personal life, and even my health.
Not long ago I was so ill that I ended up in the hospital after five days of total misery. As recently as 4 days ago I was struggling to make it through a full day of work without my strength giving out and falling down, I hardly ate or slept for 6 days whilst sick.
Immediately preceding my illness something occurred in my personal life that left me so disturbed, and out of whack, that the thought of even reading a comic book seemed harder than digging a ditch. I won’t discuss here what happened, it wouldn’t be right, but suffice to say I thought I knew what being sad felt like, I had no idea, truly. I’m working through it all, and I’ve decided I can’t let this keep me from doing what needs to be done. We can’t choose the things that will happen to us in life, but we can choose how we’ll deal with them. I’m not going to let this get in my way, not anymore.
I’m going to take another few days and get caught up on my reading, I haven’t even read a comic book since, I think, the Sixth of this month, then I’m getting back to my work here, on this site.
Next time you’re sick, instead of feeling sorry for yourself, or eating a bowl of Chicken Noodle Soup, you should go to adultspeakscomics.com and…
