tra la la.
this is a personal blog and i am happy to have the readership that i do. everything i write here is the truth and it comes from an honest place.
the things i enjoy writing here are mostly funny, silly, quirky bits about my life. they are personal. they are real. oh, and my voice? this one here? that's real, too.
so if you think, just from reading this blog, that you know me...you are right. you probably do.
but i have not, in any way, painted a complete picture of me and my life here. and i will never attempt to. frankly, neither of us has the patience for that. there is just too much to tell and, dear invisible internet friends, this is not my autobiography.
i DO carefully pick and choose what i write about here, and not because of my commenters (though that HAS become more prickly of late). i pick and choose because, well, that's what writers do.
so i feel disappointed when people are so judgmental of me, based solely on the limited information i provide.
and i likewise feel disappointed that some of you seem to feel like i'm "hiding" stuff from you. i'm not. i'm just omitting things i don't feel like sharing -- and those things are many and varied. depending on my readers, i'm sure some of those things would be considered sordid and scandalous, others just sad and boring. some would seem scintillating, some utterly shocking, some completely unrelateable.
so i'll just keep on doing what i do, writing what i write, and hope you'll play along.
