dear beloved blog-friends:
i’m retiring from this space, effective today. i will always write. i will always want to share. but the time has come to wrap things up here at magnoliathoughts.com.
i came to this little corner of the world at a time when i was lost, confused, and needed to know that i wasn’t alone out there. and boy, was i ever not alone. reviewing my archives, i found all manner of places when people who used to be strangers reached out and made themselves friends. it’s been such a huge chunk of my life for so many really formative years.
but i’m kinda dried up on personal blogging. i really don’t have much to say anymore. my life has settled down – the man, the job, the life. the grand sweeping chaos that my life used to be was great fodder for storytelling. my current life? i’m sure y’all would just love to read 500+ words about our trip to whole foods saturday and our afternoon watching kids play with someone’s thrown-out furniture outside our front window yesterday. but it’s hard to squeeze material out of my quotidian existence these days. i’ve written less than a dozen times in 2015. that’s a pretty good sign that it’s time to hang up the keys and say goodbye to this space.
i’m taking my talents to tumblr, though, so i won’t be far. i’ll find fun things to share, have thoughts on things from time to time, and still be around to hang out.
so thank you to every single person who’s read these words, reached out a hand in friendship and solidarity, and been a buddy to me through the years. it’s been so fun. i’m so glad i took this chance.
take care of yourselves. it’s important.
