You know, that snake post on Friday never sat well with me. It's been hanging over my head; kind of a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach ever since then. I felt like it was portraying me as a pretty heartless person. A person who delights in killing or violence. If you know me and as I know myself, I am not that kind of person. Far from it. Yes, I do have a fear of snakes. They do infest my yard and it would be my desire that they weren't around. That is something I'm trying to deal with. However, it makes me feel bad if what I said about my delight in getting rid of these creatures by killing them would be offensive to anyone of you all. Reading what I wrote those three years ago, especially now, seems pretty cruel and uncompassionate.
I want this space to be one where people find peace and beauty. That post did not coincide with that intention and desire.
Specifically, Stephanie (if you ever do make your way back here) I extend my sincere, heart felt apology. I feel better, even if you hadn't written the comment you left this morning, by deleting that thoughtless, offensive, and disturbing post.
So very sorry.
