I have lost my voice.
My writing voice.
I have not posted in a while because I cannot wrap my mind around how to explain the place I'm in. There is a lot going on that I'm not sure should be shared with the world. There are good things happening, sad things, angering things, exciting things, and even some scary and anxiety provoking things.

There are things I literally cannot write about- expressly forbidden actually.
There are things I want to write about, but out of respect for those involved will not.
And there are things I simply am choosing not to write about to protect myself...I need to not be so bare to the world right now.

I'm not sure if I will ever come back to writing like I used to. It served a wonderful purpose in allowing me to cathartically release my grief and emotions for a long time. But I don't know if that is necessary any more.

Maybe my voice will find it's way back to me in time...


  1. i've missed your voice- but i think i understand- i too find myself a little less willing to bare my soul now that the shock has worn off a bit more. i may be wrong, but i think it's a good, healing sign to not write as often or even at all.

  2. I miss your voice, and will miss your honesty.

  3. I miss your voice but respect that you are finding other ways of healing more effective. I just hope that you stand strong to what you need and deserve, don't let others opinions rock YOUR are the one living it, you do what you need to move forward on this journey. I have enjoyed "getting to know you" although it would have been nice to do it under different circumstances, but respect this step needed for your privacy and perhaps sanity in making decisions.
    All the best and I do hope to see you come back and give a little update as to where you and the girls are...although we haven't met I am inspired by you.
    Love Em

  4. Wow. It's a bit hard to understand what's going on, but I suppose that's the point. You don't owe us an explanation, obviously. And yet I wonder what's going on? I hope you all are well.

  5. Dear Brooke,
    I miss your voice. I check your blog daily to see how you & your precious girls are doing. Hope all is well.

    You & your girls will always be in my prayers.

  6. Brooke - You don't know me, but I too check your blog daily to see how you and your beautiful girls are doing. I will be praying for you. You're writing is truly inspiring.

  7. I wish I had some encouraging words for you right now, just know that you and your little girls are in my prayers. I too, will miss your voice. I wish you all the best as you continue on in this journey.

  8. Praying you find your voice soon;no matter what you are going thru, there is always light at the end of the tunnel. Hang in there:)

  9. I love the pictures of your adorable twins. I was born one of identical twins but sadly my twin Janine died in 2008 shortly before our 47th birthday. I have also found writing to be therapeutic and have a blog where I share pictures, articles, poems etc. about being twins, becoming twinless, coping with loss and grief and the many interests my twin and I shared.
