I just wanted to thank all the #caradune artwork, cosplays, positive words and energy coming in from all over the place out there. I want you to know I feel it and it’s melted my heart and restored even more fire in my blood to keep going.. I am so grateful beyond words but I know if you have any sense of me you can imagine how incredibly full my heart is and how absolutely inspired I am by all you. I think there is a lot of hope to be had for all of us moving forward into a new decade.. hope you’re all smiling and breathing deep. We’ve made it this far and there are so many more adventures to come. We in this together. 🌹 (anyone know who this artist is so I can give them due credit)
