it's been a while, a long while. i guess the chaotic pace of my work and other distractions - didn't help either.
i was also going through a writer's block. i stared for hours on this screen, trying to pen my thoughts but i couldn't.
not too long ago, i typed in Blogger's URL, but i was blocked. couldn't figure out why. since i have nothing i wanted to update, i gave up trying to log in.
then came one mail. then two. then a couple more.
friends of this blog started writing me, asking me if i am ever going to blog again. people i don't know emailed me telling me how my blog has impacted them in ways i cannot understand. long lost readers messaged me to say they missed my posts. everywhere i turn, someone will remind me of Hotel Solace.
and i have to say -- i am indeed very touched. i am sorry i have been gone for so long. i do want so much to touch lives again, and i hope i can still remember how to do it.
i have retreated into a space that doesn't need me to feel that much -- and that helped brought some stability and sanity back into my otherwise dysfunctional life. for a while, this blog has been that hotel solace for me, and many others. but the emotions that checked in here daily were mostly raw, and very, very real. i needed a solace of my own and i found it interestingly, by not blogging.
but it feels good ...to be back.
it feels wonderful to know u guys are still checking in.
and it feels liberating to be able to crack the stupid privacy code that's preventing me from logging into blogger.
and yes, i do miss you too.
