I'm stressed out by things that have happened back stage this past week. I need some time off and Piper's real life is kind of nightmarish lately so I hate to dump any more responsibility on her. My other assistants are really not experienced enough to do what I do here.
I'm going to be gone to the San Diego Comicon from Wednesday the 11th to Sunday the 15th. I'm thinking of shutting the site down while I'm gone or maybe just Thursday to Saturday since I'll be able to work on it Wednesday and Sunday. But really, the place would have burned down if I had been gone three days this weekend.
If I really felt that a spirit of amiability and tolerance would prevail in mid-month, I'd plan on doing a little work in the evenings while I'm gone and not worry that much about it. People have been attacked for posting stories and for not posting stories. Friday, yesterday and this morning really proved to me that even underneath surface appearances of respect and friendship lurk hatred, intolerance and bigotry against anyone that can be identified as different.
I'm very sad today. Three days without BC isn't going to kill anyone, and I think I do need the break. I haven't made up my mind though.
Hugs to all,
And yes, I mean that, even to the people who have annoyed me a lot, hugs,
