And so it begins...
As if I don't already communicate by email enough, I have now joined the blogging community. This is my little spot to just tell it like it is...
"To really tell a story, I need to write it. It's then that I understand what it is that I'm really trying to say. I find the deeper meaning - and the deeper satisfaction."
- Elizabeth Berg
"If thou art a writer, write as if thy time were short, for it is indeed short at the longest."
I still have these notebooks on my shelves that I've kept since early adolescence where I would copy down poems I found, quotes, things that seemed to communicate what I was feeling or going through during that time. It's a little embarrassing to read some of those emotional twists I was putting myself through. My first attempts at poetry - ugh. But it's true. It's real. It's who I was, who I was growing to be.
I have always felt compelled to write it down. Writing validates the intangible. So, here we go. Thanks for coming over.
