I'm starting on this project.. really starting on this project. I just looked over some previous blogs from a couple of years back and wow!! i have grown.
I see now ~ how necessary the journey really is ~ when I read some of my previous narratives I can feel how lost I felt, my true well of empathy.
Well.. I know it doesn't appear in this post but I actually just spent 3 hours putzn around this site to make it look at little more readable.
I am a great lover of all things written and created. I have a really hard time parting with my books and magazines. I keep my books, but mostly I save my magazines to use when I collage with my groups, but before they make it to that stack, they are in the stack by my bed, or my couch. Randomly - today - I picked one up to dream a little on ideas for home and heart. I got spurred by a short article out of Better Homes & Gardens (September 2009) featuring Women of Strength by Kathleen Parrish. Alexandra Stoddard, designer says that she woke up at 5am to have time to write for 2 hours before waking the kids for school. I probably won't write for 2 hours because I have to get ready for work myself, but I can certainly write for an hour.
I can make a place ~ a space for ideas and thoughts ~
