Yes, it HAS been a long time since my fingers have spoken here at TRN. The last... oh, decade has been challenging, enlightening, fulfilling... humbling. Now, at 49, I believe I am finally waking up to all that has happened with all the (sometimes overwhelming) feelings that go with this kind of awareness. Maybe it's mid-life crisis... maybe it is the nervous breakdown everyone seems to be waiting for me to have... it doesn't matter. Some VERY old demons have came back to bite me in the last two years and I've stared them down and continue to move forward in spite of them. I can't say they've gone away. I'm not sure they ever really will. What matters is that I'm here now, my feet are on the ground, and I bring what I've learned with me.
So... as I turn yet another page in the tome that is my life I return to The Rogue Nun. I can't imagine the fundamentals will change all that much but who knows? If you still follow after all this "quiet" time, thank you. If I have not returned an email or a comment and I've offended, upset, and/or disappointed you, I apologize. I make no promises. In truth, TRN is about me and my need for a space to express myself however selfish that may sound. And still, I do care about everyone. I mean that. I envision hugging the planet daily and one of my greatest joys is encouraging others and helping them find the beauty in themselves and in what they create. My name, Letitia, means "beloved" or "one who brings joy." In Old Spanish, it was the word for "happiness." I do my best to live up to the name I've been given even on my darkest days. What turns up in TRN isn't always happy or encouraging but the "me" behind it is always shining and wants nothing more than for you to shine too.
Again, thank you. Thank you for being here, for reading, for the connection. I am more grateful than I can say.
With much love,
