There and Back Again or Something Like That

I was going through a drawer and happened upon a business card with the web address for this blog which I had long forgotten about.

Apparently, it's been more than three years since I blogged for myself.  Oops.  I was kind of afraid to read what I had written.  I tend to embarrass myself when I read my past writing but I was pleasantly surprised to find it all coherent and fairly well-written.  Yay, me!  Phew!

So, we're on the cusp of a historic election.  A good friend is dying.  My life has gone a bit haywire.  I've made a lot of art, made some music, made new friends (and lost a few).  I've started and quit two freelance writing gigs.  I've started two businesses which tend to give back as much as I manage to put into them.  My heart is heavy and my mind is chaotic so I was thinking maybe I'd revisit this space and talk to myself and whoever wants to listen a bit and maybe try to find and possibly share a little peace and clarity.

Initially, I had dedicated this thought-space to politics and religion because I'm just fun like that but I might just make it a "me" space.  Or I might forget about it for another three years.  Who knows?  But I'd be lying if I said the thought of getting back to writing wasn't getting me at all excited.
