I was absolutely beside myself as I tried to handle the situation from hundreds of miles away. We couldn't get a plane ride back until Sunday (robbery occurred on Friday night), and so we returned early yesterday morning to assess the situation. What we found completely broke my heart.
What's even worse is that I feel so incredibly violated. Some scumbag broke into my home, my safe haven, my refuge. They tracked their dirty footprints through our hallways, into our bedroom, my studio, even our bathroom. They touched my most private possessions and then decided to take them as their own. Who does such a thing? I hope there is a special circle in hell waiting for whoever violates another person in this way.
So today was my day to contribute to Sfgirlbybay's "Blog it Forward" and to talk about what inspires me. But I just can't. Not only do I not have a computer, no pictures...nothing, but I am feeling completely uninspired. Heartbroken. Full of despair. So I am sorry for my lack of participation.
I know that these are only material things...but how can you ever replace such a keepsake. My life on a chain, that I hoped to one day pass onto my children. How can I come to terms with this loss?
Needless to say...posting will be light this week. Thank you for your understanding.
