It's been a while, yet again. I used to really enjoy blogging, that is until it became a huge contest to have the most professional website, win the most awards and look the most like a newspaper chock full of useful articles. Whatever happened to just real and raw writing? I have a few bloggy friends that do it, but it is rare. So I've taken to writing things in a personal journal and, if the mood strikes. I'll still throw things up here once in a while.
So about a week ago Moore, OK (in the Oklahoma City metro area) was devastated (yet again) by an EF-5 tornado. Moore is about two and a half hours away from us, but I have quite a bit of family and friends in that area, and have been out there countless times. I was just there less than a year ago and will actually be going back two months from now. It was a horrible tragedy that everyone has heard plenty about by now, but something about that storm has awakened something in me. It sort of activated or awakened a long sleeping Goddess archetype within... that being Artemis. Through this experience I realize I've been repressing some issues waaaaaaay down. But that being the case it will be a long time before I can really address them (much less work through them). On the outside things are going well, the kids are healthy, the family is blessed, and so for now I just sigh and hold up the umbrella to ward off the storm within.
