Blog Post #500


I started writing this blog way back in the summer of 2008. So much has happened during these four years. If you have been following me from the beginning, you know all the stories. There have been romance and heartbreak, comedy and tragedy, new beginnings and difficult endings, good times and hard times. I like to think that I have grown as a result of these experiences; in many ways, I am more sure of myself and my place in the world than I ever have been. Still, there are times I feel lost, frightened and alone. And although many things have changed, much has remained the same.

In this blog I will share many, many adventures. I am a single mom, a daughter and a sister; a music maker and piano teacher; a writer; a lover and a friend; a dog owner; a maker of things, including but not limited to collage art, knitting, crocheting, quilting, and beading. I cook and bake and clean and do laundry and all the other several hundred things it takes to keep a household running. To tell you the truth, I often have a hard time keeping up with everything and maintaining order and balance in my life. It might have something to do with that denial thing. I am hoping that writing about it will help.

Whether you are a new reader or an old friend, thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing this journey with me. Knowing you are out there, with your support and good wishes, means more to me than you can imagine. Keep those comments coming.

Here’s to the next five hundred blog posts.
