Gone Private

Well, I changed to private. Thank you for those who emailed me with their addresses to ask to come along. I went ahead and sent some invites to others that I had addresses for who I know read here occassionally.

I know there has been speculation about why I'm going private and some concerns. It really wasn't that big of a deal ...except on a personal level. Family issues have made it necessary. I was censoring everything I wrote out of concern over who was reading my blog (from my family) and how they were A) interpreting the information and B) how they'd use that information.

When family fueds begin ... nothing is sacred, so it seems. Respect goes out the window. I'd have to admit the lack of respect goes both ways, I've lost all respect for those I'm no longer on speaking terms with, and I seriously doubt that it will ever be reconcilled, but ... it must be that way for me to be the healthiest person I can be.
I would never be able to look myself in the eye if I did not stand up for right when such blatant battle of right and wrong was at stake.

I may blog more in detail about this, if I need some catharcis, I may stay to myself on it, just depends on what the writer in me needs to do. I will answer questions though as I realize this is a bit cryptic.


  1. Hang in there, PK. We may not be able to do much because of distance, but we can listen.

  2. So glad I got an invite to continue visiting your blog. Sorry to hear family matters pressed on your decision to privatize things. I understand though.

  3. Ramona, thank you so much.

    Deb,I'm glad you accepted. Family stuff can be crazy, no?

  4. thanks for the invite, and the trust implied, Pk. Your blog was in the must-read folder on my rss reader, so I definitely would have missed hearing your voice. You know you have my prayers!

  5. Thanks for the invite, Pk...I definitely understand the privacy concerns. Like Ramona said, we may not be able to do much, but we are here to listen.

  6. Thanks PK for inviting me. I have read you since the beginning, I don't know what I would have done without your blog. I certainly understand why you did this.

  7. Patti thanks for coming along!

    Purplesque, good to see you here as well.

    Cathy .. ahh, but what would I do without you? You were the first person to request more poetry!
