Of necessity this is going to be a short post right now. I am sure you have all heard about the devastating earthquake that rocked our city on Tuesday, and I am humbled more than I can say for all the kind thoughts and wishes that so many of you have sent me from around the world.
I am fortunate to be safe and unhurt, and have wonderful family taking care of me. You can see in this picture the state of my kitchen right now, so I hope you understand why I'm not cooking (no power either) and blogging right now.
Communication is not always easy either, so if you have sent me a message or comment and I haven't replied yet please forgive me, but please keep your messages coming - you cannot imagine how grateful I am for them right now and how much they mean to me. So I am getting your messages, but it is not always easy to respond.
Right now I am very much focussed on just trying to function and do the things that I absolutely have to get done. My whole future is completely uncertain right now, and I have no idea what lies ahead, but please know that I will eventually get back to you - it just might take me a few weeks.
There is really much more to say, but right at the moment it is all too raw - I will share more with you in the time ahead, but for now I just wanted to let you all know that I am safe and to say thanks. It may be a few weeks before I am back to any kind of regular posting, but I hope you will keep me in your hearts and keep coming back to my blog.
