It's come to my attention that some of you might be wondering why you are here (since this is a topic that is being openly discussed). I just want to add my two cents to this conversation: if this place isn't bringing you joy, I encourage you to move on to somewhere else that might. It brings a lot of other people joy--and me--but it clearly isn't working for some of you. I promise you, if you're wondering why you're here, it's time to go. You will find somewhere better, somewhere more resonate. Phetasy gave you something for a time and perhaps that time has passed.
This was meant to be a place of joy, a place where we can check out of the culture wars and into our humanity. A place where I can connect to the people who consume my work and we can share a laugh, recipes, dog pictures, memes, and try to find the things that bring us together; to focus on the things we are for--not against. A place where we can debate lovingly and openly but not tear each other down and call each other names.
I only want everyone to find their bliss, get out of their own way, look for the love and joy in their life. If you aren't finding that here--it's time to move on. I'll still love you and wish you all the best. For as much as I joke about making me rich--I really just want to make people happy.
