Great Lakes Greta Surfaces
I just wanted to thank you all for the outpouring of support and concern following my whine of a month ago. I was in a dark, dark place for a good month before that and I didn't know what to do other than post. Posting helped. Reading your responses helped--a lot. That specific darkness began to lift the moment I shared with you. This semester continues to be a struggle, professionally, but I have been able to put much of it in perspective and to forgive myself a little bit for my own inadequacies--and that is in large part because of the responses I read from you good folks here.
This is the first moment I've been able to steal to surface. I just wanted you all to know that I'm fine and that I remain grateful for this virtual community that has sustained me through so much.

P.S.-- I am working on new haiku.
