Dearest folks,

I’ll be taking a hiatus from this site for the time being. I lost someone very close to me today, and I need to spend time with my family.

(I have a backlog of little things I might post to my Tumblr to keep myself in lighter spirits, but I can’t promise anything.)

Whether or not you’re celebrating anything this time of year, hold your loved ones close. Tell them how you feel. Hug your family, your friends, your coworkers, your cat, dog, hamster, fish. (Well maybe not your fish. Just give it some extra food and whisper sweet nothings in it’s general direction.) Express your love as often and as honest as possible. Love is what got my dad through his roughest weeks, and it was what kept him going as long as he did.

He loved Charlie Brown, so here’s one I thought was relevant:

I love you, dad. I love you so fucking much.
