I missed you so. I am so glad to be back.
I owe you all such gratitude and love for supporting me when I was unable to support myself.
I am forever grateful. So many wonderful words of encouragement and love.
It is all very bleak when you are suffering through a depressive stage. So many of you shared your wisdom and compassion and your own journeys. I carried those words with me.
First, not feeling I deserved them.
Then when I was ready, drawing comfort from them and knowing I was not alone.
And now feeling such amazement at this wonderful, supportive and loving community of artists and friends. We have created a haven here in blog land. A safe harbor where we are allowed and encouraged to speak from our hearts. Thank you so very much. Thank you for listening and supporting and loving. Love, Jamie

"Whenever someone sorrows, I do not say, "forget it," or "it will pass," or "it could be worse" -- all of which deny the integrity of the painful experience. But I say, to the contrary, "It is worse than you may allow yourself to think. Delve into the depth. Stay with the feeling. Think of it as a precious source of knowledge and guidance. Then and only then will you be ready to face it and be transformed in the process."
