I wish to each and everyone of you a wonderful new year. May your dreams and wishes come true.
Especially, keep safe and watch your health.
A friend just wrote me a message stating "you make plans, life makes the decision".
That pretty much sums up my last year.
Having started already quite shaky, it gave me at least the chance for a really wonderful trip to Spain with my Mom just before spiraling down again when my spouse fell ill for most of the second half of the year which forced us to refocus in life and work.
In the result, I cut down almost all of my online activities - without notice.
That's what I apologize for, especially since I neglected my responsabilities in the groups I'm in, but in the end, everyone of you has their own struggles so I didn't want to dump all of my crap on you and I really didn't feel up to log in on dA because I just didn't have the time to even delete message stacks.
To be honest, I had thought about deleting my account for good, but since this has been an important place to me for several years, I am not ready to quit, especially not the people I have known only here and who I really care of no matter how absent I may be.
Now, we're alright - almost -, but since I don't have much to share of any kind of art at the moment, I will stay away a little longer.
Anyone who wants to keep in touch is welcome to e-mail me.
I don't make any promises - life will make the decisions - I just wanted to leave a message to all of my friends here and wish you a good start into a new year that hopefully will be better and more peaceful.
