Dear Internet,

I love you. I really do. I have immensely enjoyed creating and updating this blog over the past four years. On days I feel lonely or unaccomplished, I cherish going through the archives, looking at photographs of my friends and realizing how much I have grown as an individual, a friend, an artist. I love the community you provide, however far removed. I love my blogroll and reading about my friends’ interesting lives, even when they think their lives are nothing but mundane. But Internet, I’m growing again. I’m changing. I need some space to figure things out quietly. I want to understand the part I’m supposed to play. That’s what it’s about, right?

Play. Our roles. The things that matter most to us.

Internet, I need a break. Some time away. I need to stop feeling guilty when I realize I’m not feeling guilty enough about not writing to you. That’s not to say I won’t come back; I still need you. You’re part of my life now. You’re family. I just need to do this on my own, OK?

My Undying Affection,

Judy

Happy Holidays, friends. From my house to yours. Talk to you in the new year.
