Loki is back from retirement !!
I have to thank Ian at the "Blog With No Name" for this complete turn around as something he said to me this weekend rang true, I had contemplated giving this figure away his reaction was a definitive no its you and you should not be giving that away.
This caused me to think hard about my reasons behind retiring this figure. You see to my mind he was tarnished due to the identity theft. Something that I could not eradicate from my sometimes warped state of mind. However no matter what I used to replace that identity it never felt completely right either. Even the apology from the tin soldiers of Antwerp and suitable compensation for the breach did nothing to calm my mind about this. Though on reflection of Ian's comment it made me think about the wider audience obviously people saw him as me. It was a recognisable figure to many bloggers. Therefore I should rise above the nonsense side of things and put him back in his rightful place and resume his role as my online identity once more.
Sometimes my mental health issues get in the way of clear thought and reasoning. I suspect most people would not have worried over such trivial matters and just got on with it. They of course are right in a sense but for sufferers like me sometimes the smallest things can cause the biggest problems. This move has certainly made me feel a damn sight better as he is one of the miniatures I am rather proud to have painted. So far the year for me has been well beyond expectations and this turn around is another small step in the right direction for me personally.
I apologise for this ramble of a post but needed to get this off my chest so to speak, but at least it is a very open and honest one, so I thank you for stopping by even if there was not a great deal of content today!
