I'm feeling sad... I think maybe even sad enough to take a short blogging break.
There will be no Bookshelf Tuesday today - I have some lovely books, but I have lost my enthusiasm.
Why? Well this morning I was greeted by my first "bad" comment. It was left by someone about one of my Illustration Friday drawings - it just said "I think it's crap". Now I am not totally naive, I understand that by blogging I put myself out there for others to comment, however, I would think that if someone doesn't like something (and they are entitled to) and take the time to write, they could at least offer some constructive criticism. I also believe they could stand behind their words so I know who they are - maybe there is something to be learned from them? Instead, I have been left with a nasty taste in my mouth, and a sad gloom. You may think I am being too precious - maybe I am - maybe I need to have a tougher shell - but unfortunately I don't - never have really. So, to try and wipe away this nastiness I am going to go and enjoy the beautiful day we are having here. I'm not sure when I will be back, hopefully not long....
