I don’t know how to re-enter this space. And the last time I wrote feels like a lifetime ago, when we were all different people. I won’t go into too much detail here because it doesn’t feel like my story to tell and it’s just such a deeply personal and devastatingly story, that I don’t have any claim over. I will just say that Joey’s cousin and his wife, two people I love and adore, lost their 3-year-old daughter in an accident and none of our lives will ever be the same. Not all of the moments since have been bad, but mostly, there is just this deep pit of sadness in all our hearts. And it catches you off guard and stops you in your tracks and it really really hurts.
Mostly, I just wanted to explain my absence here and I didn’t want to leave this life-defining moment unspoken of, because Elliott deserves better than that, even if it is extremely painful to write these words.
I have happy words to share, but now does not feel like the time and I’m not really sure when it will feel like the time. So for now, please take care of yourselves and I hope to be back sometime in the future.
