Not sure of the best place to begin after four months away from writing here. Beginnings are always the most challenging part of any writing piece for me. So many possible directions to take or excuses to make about why I haven’t written. I could also just jump right in, like so ..
It just feels like the right time to be back. To begin. Again.
Hopefully, I’ll be getting some technical help in the not-too-distant future so this blog-o-mine can shift to WordPress and get some spiffy updates. I realized awhile ago that I’ve been using that lack of techno-savvy as an excuse for not writing. Also? I’ve been playing around on Instagram much to my great satisfaction and delight. No DSLR camera though until the new laptop’s paid off. Yep. I’m full of reasons for not writing. No technical skill. No camera. No time. No energy. No voice. No purpose .. what’s this blog supposed to be ABOUT anyway?
No. More. Excuses.
I write in my head all the time, so might as well make the time and just empty it all out. Maybe I’ll write about school one day and a really good granola recipe the next. I might share a new book I’ve read or some ideas about spreading hope in this world of ours. It makes sense to me to share the bits and pieces of my life and the hope I find along the way. Being hopeful is sorta synonymous with new beginnings .. so here’s mine. And you’ll wait me out with the Iphone pics, right?
So, like some thousands of folks world-wide, I’ve been thinking about declaring a Word of the Year since the big ball dropped introducing 2015. And I’ve decided I really can’t commit. Since each day has its own flavor, and my thoughts, moods, needs, and feelings shift around a bit, it makes more sense to work around a word of the day – or so. Lo and behold … believe it or not … today’s word was WRITE. No time like NOW to get started then. I don’t like breaking promises to myself.
