Creator of Snow Sez!
Thank you, Graham! I am touched! I love it <3
Wow! I feel like I’m having an ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ moment! It’s a bit surreal. I appreciate your outpouring of love and well wishes. I’m deeply moved. There are no words…. Thank you all for caring. Again, I am very grateful for each one of you and your overwhelming compassion! <3
That is why it has hurt me additionally that I haven’t been able to deliver comics to you that can provide a sense of comfort and hope, especially during these insane and truly challenging times for all. So, I was in denial about what I wanted to do (create/share comics) and what I was actually capable of doing. This is where my internal dilemma began and where the communication problems stem from. I tried to keep doing the best I could, but I kept faltering until I could go no more…thus the inconsistent comic output. By the time things got too bad, I couldn’t function properly, and didn’t know what to say to you or how to say it…and to be quite frank – staying alive had to become my focus. It’s hard to help others when you can’t help yourself. I hope you understand. However, I want to make it perfectly clear I still stand by the fact I was wrong in how I handled the situation, so this is not an excuse for my actions.
I want you to know, I have a stack of comics waiting to be completed and I am biting at the bit to create again. I look forward to sharing them with you. However, I am sure you’ve already guessed what I’m going to say next.
Due to the current circumstances I have no choice but to announce an ‘official’ hiatus. I know. Not what anyone wants to hear, including me. The truth is, I don’t know how long this road to recovery will be – no one does, so it’s hard to give a time-frame. I have no plans on giving up on Snow. I hope you won’t either because I do have so much to give creatively with the comic and I am eager continue with ‘Snow Sez 2.0’.
I want you to know I am working every second of every day to get better so I can not only get my life back, but so that I can deliver FRESH Snow comics to you…and I have a feeling that the comic is going to reach a new level, so I hope you’ll stay tuned.Thank you for caring. I look forward to returning for GOOD in the near future – God willing.
Where to begin?
First, an apology. I am deeply sorry for not touching base with you and simply “vanishing.” You deserve better than that and I am ashamed of my behavior. It was wrong. I don’t have any excuses in that regard. I want to apologize for letting you down, making you feel abandoned, worrying you, and/or hurting you in any way. It hurts me deeply to know that I have hurt you. Again, I am so, so very sorry.
With that said, I would like to hopefully shed some light about what has been going on behind the scenes.
I have been unwell for quite some time. Early this year, I had to undergo lifesaving surgery. I am currently in the process of an arduous recovery. It’s been a difficult time for me and my family for a number of reasons. I feel incredibly grateful to have another chance at life, and so deeply grateful for my family who have unconditional love for me and have been very supportive through thick and thin. I know how much that means and how so many people don’t have that. It’s an enormous ‘sin’ that anyone should suffer alone if you ask me. If I didn’t have them, there would be no comics…and I probably wouldn’t be here talking to you now. (1/2)
You can read my reply to GSD Mom, above, for an update on Serene. If anyone has inquiring minds about what breed she is, it appears she is a “Snow Tiger Siamese”…she’s not white colored, but that’s the name of her breed – which I thought was funny. :)
Serene has been very ill over the Christmas holiday. She had a high fever and had to go to the emergency vet until she could be seen by her normal vet during regular business hours. She currently has pneumonia. She’s made some solid improvement, and no longer has a fever. She is doing so much better, although it will take a while for her to fully recover. So, I’m very grateful that she is in the process of healing. (So far, in her short kitten life, she’s used up 3 of her 9 lives – that I know about – but she’s a fighter!) Thank you for your concern, GSD Mom!
I LOVE IT! Although, I think Snow might LOVE it more…(although – it’s a close one)! Thank you for always remembering, BaconBoyCamper! I appreciate it! I hope you and your loved ones had a safe and happy holiday!
Happy belated Christmas to everyone! (Or rather, Happy belated Fishmas, as Snow would say)! I hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday!
