I struggle here with how to begin.
I want to say, “Hello” and “Welcome,” but somehow that makes me feel stiff and robotic, like a clean-cut stewardess greeting airline passengers. I am not any of that: not stiff (I hope), not robotic, and definitely not a stewardess. (I get too motion sick to even hope for such a high position. Pardon the pun.)
But here is who I am. I am a writer. I am a writer who loves to explore human relationships and experiences. I write nonfiction, essays, and poetry. I love photography. I love coffee. I love rain and mountains and campfires. I love Jesus. I am fiercely in love with my family – as an only child, a daughter, a wife, and a mother. While not new to blogging (I write about ‘Mamahood at www.sugarbeanscribbles.blogspot.com), I am new to WordPress. And I created this blog to talk about writing.
Writing. In all of its beauty and chaos. As a way of art making. As a way of communicating. As a way of understanding. Here I hope to be a vehicle through which creativity, expression and communication dance. Here I hope you will find inspiration, creativity, and perhaps even understanding. Whether it’s understanding of the writer’s life, of your own work, of yourself or of the chaotic world, I hope to build community here.
Take a look, give me feedback. Follow. Join. Communicate. Let’s see and make art together. Let’s see what happens.
It’s taken me a long time to get to this point. But here I am. So Hello. And welcome.
