Personal Update

I was quite surprised to notice recently that I did not make a single art update in all of 2017. Anyone who has followed me for any time, knows that I use my art and writing as a means of relaxing. It’s what I do for fun when I have free time. The fact that I hadn’t posted in over twelve months should tell you what kind of year it has been for me. Due to changes in government, I lost a long standing employment gig and had to scramble for work. I also found out that my partner of many years has cancer and is terminal. She doesn’t have anyone else, so I have been caring for her, and it has been perhaps the hardest thing I have ever done. The pain of having to watch someone you love wither away like that… I wouldn’t wish that on an enemy. The future is pretty bleak right now, and unfortunately, it probably means that my updates will be sporadic at best. I’m sorry, really. Thank you for sticking with me all these years. I look forward to a time when I can update regularly. – Marjorie
