Here is a message I got this morning that I’d like very much to share with you all. Somehow it brought me back on trails again, I guess, as far as my confidence in people is concerned. At least, so I felt it. Perhaps you’ll feel that way too.
I don't know why you apologise for the length of your messages; there is no need to, really. What you write is always interesting.
Hello, it is nice to hear from you again. Occasionally, I have visited your blog over the previous three, or so, years and I have wondered what happened to you. I have alternated from thinking the worst, to think all sorts of lovely out comes. I don't know why but both types of scenarios have often involved push bikes. I guess it is the product of my imagination.
I guess the reality is not quite so interesting. I hope you are feeling better now?
I hope life is progressing okay for you, your message seems to say the opposite, but I hope that is changing to something better for you.
Yes, you should travel, it is a wonderful thing. But, I guess, if you are not able to, we are lucky we have the internet, even if it is a somewhat second rate alternative. There is nothing like seeing places for oneself. I am always told by visitors to Australia that it is the Australian light that is so unique. I guess you don't get to see such detail through a computer screen.
I am well and happy. Well, happy in my personal life, even if I am not so happy in my professional life. I have a lovely new (going on two years) boyfriend who came along when I least expected him to, I guess, as boyfriends often do, who is smart and handsome and clever and funny and just so nice and normal that he has won my heart over completely. He makes me smile and laugh and happy on a daily basis.
So, good to hear from you. Here’s to a happy and healthy 2012.»
