i feel like, even though we

i feel like, even though we talk all the time and i've known you for so long, your blog allows me to know you in ways i never would have been able to without it. and that, to me, is invaluable. and not only has it helped me get to know you, it's helped me understand myself better by seeing my unformed and unarticulated thoughts and feelings about life and love and friendship and family reflected back at me through your writing.
i understand wanting and needing to take a break, or even stopping if that's what you need to do, but i would miss this very much. i'd get over it, but i'm betting i'm not the only person who feels some of these things about your writing. so whatever you decide to do, i hope you get that this is and/or was important to people.

Come on Megan....I know

Come on Megan....I know (well, at least knew) you, and you're better than that. You have a passion, and are fantastic at what you do.

We all go through the "blah" phases of life, but they pass. As Lynard Skynard once said:

"Take your time... dont live too fast,
Troubles will come and they will pass."

I understand that sometimes to really appreacite what we have, we have to leave it, and then come back to it later. You've been busy...take a break, and then you'll be led back to what you truly enjoy, and if it happens not to be writing, then life will go on.

You're a talented individual, and will be successful in what ever it is that you do.

If you need to chat with an ole' friend, you know where to find me.

BTW do you still have that copy of Stephen King's Silver Bullet that I bought you? Don't worry if not...just curious.

megan, i love reading your

megan,
i love reading your blog and look forward to it every day. Even though reading blogs of people with whom I am not in touch makes me feel a bit like a stalker (uhm... not a CRAZY stalker, the GOOD kind....), I also know that there is a reason the writing is posted publicly in the first place.
I believe that you have a special gift when it comes to writing and I am grateful when you share it with the world. This is especially true since I can really relate to your points of view and values, because it in turn makes me feel more connected to the world (or at least part of it) somehow.
I hope you will continue to write this blog, if not right now, then hopefully eventually.

cheers
p

I'll miss it if you stop.

Do what you got to do

Do what you got to do Butcher.
Take the summer off. Take the year off. Borrow my hammock.

I'm a sailor. I love sailing. Except I haven't done it in 3 years.
Maybe one day I'll pick it up again. Maybe it will take me time to get in the grove, and maybe I won't.

I'm also an artist. Except I only make art like once every 3-4 heartbreaks.
Maybe if I had a studio, or had a canada council grant, or less supportive friends I would make more. but I don't.

write if you want to write and don't if you don't want to.

Sure I love reading your writing. But it's not what makes you special and wonderful and fantastic and lovely. It's not what makes you a great communicator and a great friend.

Those things barely require any words at all.

So don't worry about us, if you go we will miss you, and if you come back, we'll all trickle back too, don't you worry.

Thank you, all of you. I'm

Thank you, all of you. I'm feeling better. I'll probably be back sooner than later.

GC - I purged 90% of my books when I moved to Ottawa, and that was one of them. But I do still have the lapis ring you gave me the night before I was performing something, and the dime you flattened on the tracks behind the high school.

Ahh the gold ole' days. Do

Ahh the gold ole' days.

Do you still talk with either Edith or Karen, or anyone else from Stouffville for that matter? The only ones I kept in touch with is Mike D, and Alan S. We still get together a couple times a year and share a bevy or two.

What ever you decide to do is probably best for you; we'll all still be there if you take a break, but I hope you choose to follow your heart...it always leads you to the right place!

Don't go...but go if you

Don't go...but go if you have to. If you truly love something you have to let it go to see if it'll come back to you. I'll miss reading...'cause like Shelly said it's not just about you but about "us" the readers and how we learn through what you write.
