28 Days

Fri Feb 21, 2014, 5:31 AM
My mother passed away 4 weeks ago. It's so surreal how it feels like it was just yesterday, but also feels like a lifetime ago. I'm now to the point where I'm not having stress-episodes like before, which is a good thing. I still get depressed, and there are moments I'm perfectly okay and then just fall apart the next minute. But time is doing it's things and it is getting better.

I spent most of this morning answering many (literally 300+) messages from deviants with respect to my mother. I have to admit, I should have answered sooner, and did get a few done here and there. But I kept putting it off since I knew it would open some wounds. Nevertheless, again, I am just overwhelmed by the love and support shown. This community has some of the most amazing people. I cannot tell you all how much your kind words mean to me.

That said, I'm not done. I still have condolence messages to answer, regular comments, and there are quite a few notes to respond to. Now that I've managed to make a big dent in them (and I didn't fall apart too badly), I hope to get them finished off this weekend.

As for art, I have been pixelling. I hope to get a stamp up this weekend, and maybe an emote or two.

On a side note, I'm approaching 100,000 PVs on my mirz-alt account. Since there is a lot of fudging with kiribans, I am doing a kiriban raffle. You might want to check it out.

Kiriban Raffle - WinnerUPDATE: Well, to be quite honest, the kiriban came a bit quicker than I expected when dA changed their pageview rules. I wanted to make sure that the commission to ThreshTheSky was paid before drawing a number. Anyhow, now that's done, We have a winner.

The winner is nightshade-keyblade! Congratulations, dear. Thresh is away from his computer for a few days, but he'll contact you next week and arrange for your prize.
Thank you for joining in, everyone. I am hoping to do another special raffle soon, so stay tuned.
I am quickly approaching 100,000 pageviews, which is pretty amazing to me. This account was originally just a little "side-thing" I created to post my writing and other art. I never expected that it would get a following, not to mention be awarded Seniority. Anyhow, I am excited to be rolling over into the 6-digits, so I want to do something to celebrate.
I normally do kiribans with a follow-up drawing afterwards. Well, since there has been


Again, continued thanks for everything. I know I sound like a broken record sometimes, but it is worth repeating. :heart:

I've only just found your DeviantART page. 
But some of your stamps are so deep and wise, and you seem like an amazing person. I'm glad I found you.

I'm really sorry about the passing of your mother. I can't even begin to imagine how awful it must have been, how awful it must still be. I'm glad to know you're getting better and time will make everything easier even if it doesn't take away all of the pain.

I'm so glad you're doing somewhat better. Because I don't have a whole lot of support I don't know how I'd make it. much love to you as you continue to heal. Heart

I'm so sorry to hear that, but I'm glad to hear that you feel ready to come back and talk about it so soon.  The time aspect is a bit strange, when something that significant happens. When my dad passed, it was pretty surreal, and even though it's been well over a year it still doesn't quite seem like it. [My presence on dA has been spotty, sorry for not seeing the news earlier.] It's very very nice that you can acknowledge you're getting better. : )
