As some of you noticed, I’ve been largely absent from this blog and social media for the past 10 days. Sometimes something happens in your real life that completely obliterates everything else. The irony is that the day before I had been feeling so happy, and lucky; everything seemed to be as perfect as possible. And then, something happened, a complete shock, and suddenly, just for a brief while, my safe, happy world stopped spinning completely.
And for the first time in four years, I couldn’t bear to be on social media – twitter and facebook just seemed so trivial; status updates were white noise which I wanted to drown out. I largely ignored messages from friends (apologies). The events taking place in my actual life – not my virtual one – were much more important, and frankly, it was as much as I could do to get up and go to work.
But things have settled down now, and I’m back on social media, back blogging and trying to bring some semblance of normality to my life again; I’m back from the abyss.
