This separation was far from forced. However, after some time away, it really has been for the best.
It's amazing how much can get done, how sharper one's focus can become when you remove yourself from the mix and focus. Sure, focusing can be done in the midst of the everyday hustle and bustle, but when you're able to eliminate simple things, others come to the light that were easy to miss before.
This separation wasn't even planned. Yet, I'm glad it's happening. Dare say, it wouldn't hurt to withdraw some more, give the time I'm giving to certain avenues to other avenues and see what happens.
In the grand scheme of things, this exile has proved something I already knew, especially after E. died: life goes on. When folks really wanna know what's going on, they'll find you. If not, they won't. They have lives to live, too. I wish I didn't have to have this lesson reinforced by what happened in September, but God doesn't make mistakes. Never has. Never will.
