I wasn't going to do a "going away" post. I've done them before and always come back, and it seemed dumb to post and say "No, really. This time I mean it."
But it's done.
The Wylde Kingdom is no more.
It was soul crushing loneliness that drove me so deeply into the world of the dolls and fantasy, and I have truly relished hiding in that world. It was a crutch for me when I was wounded, and I needed it and depended on it to get me through.
My life is different now. It is amazing and fantastic and wonderful. The loneliness is gone. And where a crutch can help you when you're wounded, if you continue to lean on it after you've healed, then it starts to do harm.
So it's time to put aside my crutch and have my life back again. I have hidden behind Miranda for 7 years, and it's time to come out of her shadow.
I cannot thank you enough for reading my stories and loving my characters and enjoying my photography for all these years. I would've done all of this even if no one else ever saw it, I had to, but it made it so much more wonderful to have met so many amazing, creative, and kind people through this. Thank you for being there and for your help and support.
I record. I document. I observe. But I do not experience.
It has to stop.
I will post here when I know the date, with all of the information.
And I will post here how the yard sale goes. With pictures even!
After that, I will post our goodbyes.
And then I will post no more.
This blog will remain, I have no interest in taking it down. And I'll keep checking in on all the doll blogs I've come to enjoy reading.
I'm still around.
Just finally doing some of wandering of my own. :)
