I just wanted to let you know that although i'm not going to be posting anything here for a while I am updating my Tumblr several times a day it seems. Tumblr is perfect for how my brain is feeling at the moment- I am able to collect together images and ideas without having to do any writing to go with them- just a handy 'share on Tumblr' button on my toolbar and away I go.
One of the reasons for my little blog break is the fact that my birthday is coming up next week. I share my birthday with some horrible things ( I was born the same day a coup as that bought Pinochet to power and of course 9/11), but I also share my birthday with some pretty amazing people (my roller derby friend Ellie to name just one). One of my birthday twins died nearly 2 years ago and i've decided to spend 'our' birthday this year in her home town- hopefully seeing as many of her friends and family as I can. I think this is what I need to do this year and now i've booked my train tickets I feel much better about things.
Regular blogging will resume after my birthday (unless the Large Hadron Collider being switched on next week leads to the end of the world)
