Well, my mom has been dying for me to get this going, so, finally, here I go!
I am really not sure where I will begin, what I will use this for exactly, but, as I have been constantly reminded, (hee hee hee, mom!) I MUST start somewhere!
I am not sure who will visit this page, what parts of it will they find intriguing? I love to write, it's just been so long since I utilized writing the way I used to...it's been almost cathartic(?) at times, a way to organize raging emotions and thoughts, sometimes just a need to express!
I am pretty certain that once I get organized, I want to include a spot (?) with my OLD writing... When I was a teenager, I carried around one of those HUGE binders, it's navy blue, writing all over it, just like we did in those days! I had it over full of writing...mostly pretty dark and depressing stuff...it was that work that began my desire to get my writing out there. I wanted to share it with people who were looking for something that would speak to them, "you are not alone"...
Crazy as those days may have been,they were vital in turning me into the woman I am still becoming today! No regrets allowed!
That desire to share my inner thoughts also comes with a fear...of what I cannot exactly find the words to describe...it's just a little overwhelming to imagine putting myself out there, in real time, the emotions that will sometimes come out...
I have to get my pictures organized, b/c I can't wait to add some to this as well...
I guess as the words bring the memories, I will be reminded of a photo that I will NEED to add!
This is guaranteed to be a journey and a half! I am so inspired by the growth that my mom has found by starting her own blog, it has helped take her totally back to her passion with writing, and she is taking an incredible road herself!
Well, it will be fun I am sure...Can't wait to see what happens with it all!
