thursday, september 15 marks my blogiversary. that's right, folks: 365 days of the larry lyons experience have come and gone.
it's been quite a year, and this blog has seen me through hell and high water... first-year grad school angst, losing rashawn brazell, uniting to honor his memory, interrogating organized religion, my maiden voyage into photography and more soul-bearing self-exploration than you can shake a stick at.
through it all, this blog has provided me with the space to heal and to mourn and to rant and to pose and to laugh more than i could have ever imagined. if i have any semblance of sanity after these 12 months, it's because you folks were kind enough to tolerate my ego, my exhibitionism, my insecurities and my blasphemy long enough to leave a few comments and make a brutha feel like someone cared. and i appreciate that. i do.
so, in celebration of my 1 year blogiversary, i give myself the gift of indefinite hiatus.
i'm not sure if or when i'll be back, or in what form, but i am sure that i could use some time alone with my thoughts. in the meantime, i invite you to peruse the archives. there are plenty of treasures there, if i do say so myself.
catch you on the flipside.
