I’m finished with this project for now.
In some ways it feels like I did what I set out to do. I looked at those experiences closely and lived them more thoroughly than I had previously and most certainly felt them more honestly than I was capable of at the time … and I let him in, even if only a few times and they were awkward and difficult but that will get easier.
I have started something and I think now it’s time for me to let it sit on it’s own for a moment. Some recovery is needed before I can come back to this. I feel like continuing would just be creating hurt for myself and that’s not at all what I want to do.
No, I did not make it until the end of April and I have feelings about that, but I have done so much more than I’d ever even considered before and I have learned so much and seen so much and felt so much these past few weeks … I need to stop now. But I’ll be back, to revise and revisit and hone.
