I'm sure by now you've noticed the lack of updates to the comic. Or the lack of any sort of message in my forum, or any update to the page. I'm not even sure where to start talking. By now everyone's well and ill of Sept. 11, I'm sure, so I'll just mention it in passing that yes, that's a major reason why I'm one straw from a basket case right now.<P>Physically, and even moreso emotionally, I'm a wreck. The flight instinct that I've been trying to suppress for nearly a month now did vanish temporarily, but only due to my emotions getting scrambled another way. (Since it seems almost my entire readership is male, I'll refrain from explanation of that and leave you to figure out for yourselves what I mean.) Classes? Hah. Two of them are nightmares that I wish I'd had some way out of. And I'm struggling in all of them. I'm slowly getting back on my feet.<P>Never mind that my whole life right now feels like a waking dream of the end of the world. I'd say nightmare, except that the connotations aren't quite that violent.<P>so...in sum...I guess what I'm trying to say is I'm still here, and if I manage to get a comic up, good, and if not (the more probable case right now), then know that I'm still here, just a nervous wreck.<P>I think maybe I'd just better stop trying to second-guess myself and declare hiatus again. I'm sorry to put you guys through this. But not everyone is strong enough to carry on with day-to-day life, or to pretend that everything's okay. I know I'm not.
