An official farewell
by Esselle (esselle)
at February 2nd, 2008 (09:04 pm)

Though this has been inactive since November, I wanted to make an official farewell, and apologize that I was unable to keep up with things. I know it's no excuse, but I work two jobs, and what little time I have at home, I try to use spending with my husband since we work opposite schedules. When the holidays arrived, I was unable to handle all of the challenges, and I wanted to so terribly. I wanted to make sure that I was keeping things moving.

Unfortunately, this was not a task I could handle in the midst of life and all its dramas. In December, my schedule completely flip-flopped at work from week to week, and most of my spare time not spent at one of my two jobs was spent sleeping. And after the New Year, I hit a deep personal funk that I'm still struggling to pull out of.

I know it's probably too much information, but I want you guys to know that this place has not been forgotten. I keep trying to get back to it, but I've co-moded before on icon competitions, and when things got too hard, I had to pull out. Unfortunately, for this place, when I pull out, I'm not sure it will go on.

When I started the competition, people were angry, saying there did not need to be another Bones icon competition, but I proposed one with a single picture to work off of each week. No themes. No multiple entries. Just a single picture with which each person molded their own idea of what that icon would look like. It was challenging, and it was fun, and it was a pleasure.

I loved picking the next cap and tallying the votes. I really enjoyed getting to make the banners, since I have not made any of my own graphic art in quite some time.

The rhythm of life sometimes moves faster than we are able to keep up, and when that happens, we have to let some things fall to the wayside. Unfortunately, for me, this was one of the things that just sort of fell away. It was not because of lack of interest or desire to keep it moving, but only because I could not bear the load of my entire life, and had to let go of some things that were very dear to me in order to keep going.

So, I must say it has been a pleasure getting to work with you all, and play, and be silly and for a little wihle forget the dramas of life amidst the creativity of an invisible, intangible television show that compelled us to create arts and icons. To get to see all of the talent in this community, and to admire the art I could never dream of creating myself, was an honor.

Thank you all for participating. I'm sorry I could not keep up.

Sincerely,
Esselle
