Contrary to how it may seem, I've never left DA. I sometimes go days without visiting, and my activity is pretty light. But I'm still here.
My last submission was over two years ago. I've made noise about doing new stuff, and actually started on it more than once. It still hasn't happened. This bothers me, a lot.
There are actually a lot of feelings mixed in with my gallery, and a lot of sadness over friends lost. But it's time to move on from all of that and time to get back to work. It might not accomplish anything in the long run, but my own little world is what allows me to express myself in ways I can't do any other way.
