One of my favorite tree bloggers, Aertimus, has been a bit down lately about some things going on in the blogosphere as of late. Some meaness, some departures, some unannounced silence from other bloggers. And just recently some very personal pains that she is feeling and that have caused her to leave her guild.
I think that Aertimus is fabulous. I love her posts, and the lovely comments that she leaves as she explores everyone’s blogs providing her thoughts and showing her support. She is just incredibly thoughtful and insightful, and a true asset to our community.
Now, if we could gather our barky branches up, cramp them into a car (mine has a sunroof! Great for getting that extra breeze into your leaves!), I’d call out to everyone else in our community for a tree’s night out! Dinner, dancing (lord help me!), drinks, and fun! But, as we can’t gather up in such a fashion, I thought I would show my support in the way a blogger knows how, by writing it out!
I have been following Aerti’s progress through Ulduar as she shares her frustrations and struggles, as well as her successes, just as she has followed all of ours. Whether she knows it or not, I root for her (no pun intended, honest!). I find my heart break at all of her struggles, and my emotions soar with her success!
I am very, very sorry for everything that has happened and everything that you have had to endure, Aertimus. I sincerely hope that you are able to pull up your roots and keep your branches swinging as you work through this.
I truly want you to know that you have all of my support, no matter what your decisions are. And although I cannot speak for everyone else, I can only imagine the community’s support also!
You are wonderful and fantastic, and I appreciate everything that you do for the resto druid community.
If you need anything at all, please let me know!
/big tree hug!
