I’m heaving at least a slight sigh of relief as summer comes into view after a winter and spring of discontent.
For the most part, that discontent has little to do with the actual seasons and the weather they brought. I’m actually not a fan of hot, humid weather. Instead, I’m looking forward to pressing the reset button after several months of health problems culminating in some emergency surgery.
It’s the second time in two years that my rather uncooperative body has brought me to my knees and then some. I was still recovering from a previous life-threatening illness that required some reconstructive surgery when my health took a gradual turn for the worst over the winter.
It’s been a challenging process to say the least to keep The Thornbury Paper going as a two-day-a-week operation, along with the freelancing writing I do as well.
Add into that the challenge of severely limited resources, like many media companies face, and you have a recipe for some intriguing times for running a business.
I say that strictly factually, and without any expectation of sympathy. When you’re a one-person show, and you’re not healthy enough to work consistently, it causes problems.
While I’m still recovering from my latest medical misadventures, it’s given me chance to refocus and refresh my perspective.
I expect things will slowly return to a more normal schedule over the summer, with possibly some minor changes coming to the publication.
I’ve also started a Go-Fund-Me campaign for the paper to potentially relieve some of the resource issues. Feel free to have a peek at it at the following link
