Unbelievably, as of next month, the Feminist Peace Network marks its 8th year. Looking back, I am truly awed by the growth in the scope of vision that has been represented in this effort and I want to take this moment to express my deep gratitude to all the readers of this blog and those of you who have participated in and supported this work in so many ways, I am truly, truly grateful.
And, as I have realized over the course of the last few months, I am exhausted. This work is on many levels deeply empowering, but it also takes an enormous amount of time and takes a toll emotionally. While I have every intention of continuing in this effort, from now until the first of the year, I am going to take a break from regular blogging. While there will be far less posts on the blog, I fully intend to continue to write longer more substantive posts, just on fewer topics, and I won’t be sending out updates on a weekly basis, so please do check the blog for new posts.
And yes, I’m going to take some time to smell the roses, re-introduce myself to my family and friends and clean the dust bunnies.
With gratitude to you for your support and for all that you do,
–Lucinda Marshall, Director
Feminist Peace Network
