Journey to 100

2013 11 20 PB thinking Coffe Shop Singer Icon Fair 2

Expect nothing ….


Appreciate everything.

I wasn’t sure the road I was going to travel or how long the journey would be when I hit “publish” back in February on my first post. At the time having felt unsatisfied for months about the direction or lack thereof within my SecondLife, I decided to return to something which always had bought me joy; the art of writing.

From the early days at school writing short stories to those years in high school which found me secretly writing amongst my assignments and study, a series of six books for my friends to enjoy. Writing was the one act that released the imagination and let the mind sleep.  Today those A4 manually typed books sit buried at the bottom of a drawer in my office. Storylines which as an adult I’m now embarrassed to share with others yet at the same time quietly proud of the teenager who achieved such a complex feat.

Adulthood has seen the start of a novel here and a novel there, storylines formed yet nothing completed as attention and inspiration drift onto other matters. I like to blame the demands of being mum to two active boys but in reality its the fear of failure or criticism which keeps the words hidden from view.

This blog has encouraged me to write and share my words with those who gaze upon its pages. Starting as a place for an over active mind to spill thoughts and ideas into, having blog followers wasn’t something I had thought about. I honestly doubted that even friends would want to read each post let alone strangers. So to actually have followers, comments posted and “likes” amazes me each time. I appreciate the time taken out of your day as you read over my words.

      OMG I had forgotten about those crazy yahoo pages hahahaha. Loved doing those just as much as this blog too. Although from memory they did share much more music clips. Thanks for always being along for the ride sis, regardless what format it takes.
