Taking A Breather

I thank all of you for visiting my blog over the last year, but Blast-Off will be taking a little break. You regular readers know that I suffered the loss of my mother in February. Bad luck has struck again as my father passed away from a broken heart on Father’s Day. At this point I need to mend and refocus. It is a bit difficult for me to make a funny point or compose a parody right now. To lose both parents in four months is an emotional wound that must take some time to heal. For those of you that stick around and check back time and again, I promise to return in the not to distant future with some hopefully substantive posts. Until then, I wish you all the best. Keep up the good fight for what we believe in.

Signing off,

    You have brought so many laughs into the mix – I remember when I first giggled and giggled as you strung your verbal magic through the post of the day. Like me, you refuse to see only the dark side of current events. These, too, shall pass.

    I am so sorry to hear of the loss of both of your parents in such a short time. I’m not usually at a loss for words, but here I am at a loss for the right words. Please take care of lynnrockets.

    My beloved Dad passed away at the end of February. I promised him I would take care of my quadriplegic mother – I think that helped him go in peace. She has bravely moved here (Alaska from Washington) to start a whole new life. Wow.

    in fact, this is the first time i’ve visited your website. i landed here because I clicked on a link from twitter re: Glenn Beck – but I wanted to offer my condolences, because I can’t quite imagine the emotional shift you’re experiencing.

    just know that among the many that know and love you, there’s a random someon who is holding a compassionate space for you as you mend, and heal.

    i wish you well, and I’m so sorry for your loss.
