another day...another blog.

sorry for the abrupt move, everyone. can you believe i didn't import any of my archives? so much of my life is gone, but rather than feeling nostalgic about it (well, maybe a little), i feel rather freed.

the story behind the abrupt move is this: a few months ago, when i was travelling, i accidentally left the address to my old blog on my aunt's computer. she found it, and started reading consistently what i was posting.
you can imagine family members didn't want to be reading the stuff that they were reading about me. i did, unthinkingly, air a lot of dirty laundry - some of which i don't regret airing at all, some of which i do, simply because it hurt people i love.

it all came to a head sunday night, when i had a conversation with my cousin, and i made a spontaneous decision to close the blog. with new digs, again, my family wouldn't be able to find me, and i would be able to once again freely speak my mind.

there is something to be said for continuity, but there is also something to be said for starting over.

Hey baby doll...this is a wonderful site. I totally agree with you. I would have packed up too. I'm sorry to hear others were hurt when they snooped though they shouldn't have. It's like finding a letter from someone I know that's addressed to another. I wouldn't have read it.

You are a huge talent, you write wonderfully. It's nice to see you back. Your blog rocks and you sweetie...rule.

Hey Pixie! I love your new name--and your new blog. Ok, maybe I just like all things *new* these days! :)

I'm sorry to hear that there was trouble in Bloggerville for you...but I'm VERY glad that you've resurfaced.

Pixie--dang, I love it! :)

the possibilities are endless.

Just the other day you wore a wig and were transformed and here you are, "tabula rasa".

I am excited, a new chapter is just unfurling, how will you fill up these blank spaces?

Wise decision. It can be a difficult thing. I have all kinds of stuff to say about people going through other people's things..and I just won't even touch on that right now. Probably because it's such a violation. Glad to see that your back. I would have been TERRIBLY missed.
