It won’t take me long to fill you in on what I’ve been doing in 2018. I got sick within hours of stepping off the plane on New Year’s Eve and spent the following week on my parents’ couch in the suburbs. I find it ironic that after months of saying I could not wait to close the door on 2017, I started the year in the least fresh way possible, dragging all of last year’s germs into 2018 with me.
I’m feeling better now, though my brain turns to mush in New Jersey and it seems like I have to wade through life force quicksand to get anything done.
Case in point, this post took me like six hours to write, over the course of two days. And it doesn’t even have a point, except to say hello after a few weeks of silence.
So… Hello! I hope your new years are off to wonderful starts.
I’ll be back when I remember how to string words together into sentences.

Poor Ruth! I hope you get well soon, and back to amazing writing!
Me, too! I’m trying to think of it as purging the toxicity of 2017. And welcome back to NYC! Look me up when you’re in the city!
I’ve heard from so many people who were sick last week. Perhaps it is all one collective symbolic purge. Hope you are feeling better soon! I’ll hit you up once I’m in the city…
Aww hope you feel better soon xo
