It's All Good In Joshland

So...I've been gone for a while. I haven't called. I haven't written. I've been off the grid for all intents and purposes for months and was slowly weaning myself off the internet over the past year...for that I apologize...sort of. Here's what I will tell you just in case you are concerned over my absence, as the CF Community has good reason to feel that way when someone disappears for an extended length of time:

1. My health is good. I'm not sick or in dire straights. While I have noticed some changes in my breathing and in my energy level (especially with the weird and prolonged fall weather this year), I'm addressing those changes everyday and with my healthcare team. Don't read anything into this other than it's normal progression/issues in the CF world. I'm not concerned, so you shouldn't be either. Promise.

2. The podcasts and Moganko are still in play, but are currently on the back burner until my collaborators and I are able to make them a reality. I don't like to produce content when I can't give it most of my undivided attention, otherwise it hurts everyone: podcast listeners, Moganko fans and me. I have high expectations of the things I do. When they happen they will be tremendous (I hope). Thank you for being patient(s).

3. I don't know when or if I'll be back on social media again as consistent vocal member of the CF Community. The loss of many friends, particularly in the last year, have taken their toll on my heart. Not to mention the bigger picture of violence within the real world is hard enough to stomach without constantly seeing it scroll across my feed and the negative energy that comes with it. My soul isn't built for that. Never has been and it never will be. Just know that I will never stop participating in CF awareness. I'm just happy to take a step back, let new leaders lead and focus on the gifts that can give to others while still protecting my heart.

Most importantly there are things in my real world that I needed to give all my energy to. All positive stuff, but demanding of attention. I know I'm being vague and that's intentional, but it's not meant to be malicious or selfish. I just want to be a little more private with my life going forward.

In closing, let me say that I do not miss social media, but I do miss talking to people and checking in from time to time. Write me an email at Let's keep in touch that way.

Thank you for keeping me and my family in your thoughts and prayers. They are welcomed and appreciated in good times and bad. Right now we are in very good times. :-)

Peaceful Things and Lots of Love,
