The Drought Continues

I'm sorry that blogging is so sparse here.

Part of the problem is that the world is so ugly and sad right now. I'm so horrified and distraught by all of the fighting, the constant threats of global destruction, and the horrible way that the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse (Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice) are running us straight into hell.

When I write here I want to write about important things. Things that I'm thinking or experiencing. But I don't want to constantly be writing about the things that make me angry or sad, because I really don't need that. I had to give up my daily reading of the political blogs. It just wasn't good for me as someone who already suffers from pretty intense depression. I have to really work at avoiding those things that I know are going to make me feel more hopeless and lost.

So right now it's all about knitting. Reading knitting blogs, and actually physically knitting. That is both my escape and my release. I enjoy it and it relaxes me. I love looking at what everyone else is doing. I've joined a new knitting group that meets a couple of times a month, and that has been good for me.

Maybe it's burying my head in the sand to avoid the fallout from a world gone mad, but I am really enjoying the creative outlets when I can do them. And it's what I need. Self-imposed therapy, I guess.

I guess what I'm saying in a horribly roundabout and disjointed way is, this blog is going on a hiatus. I don't know for how long. For now, I'm going to try to post a bit more frequently on my knitting blog, but even that will not be daily. I love keeping in touch with all of you. Someday I would like to have a single blog location where I can write about whatever I want, but you should know that it will likely be predominantly craft-related (sorry, guys).

For now, though, I'm officially taking a break. Thanks for your understanding. I love and will miss all two of my consistent readers! ;)
