To blog or not to blog. Some friends think it’s a good idea. I’m new at it. I can write four lines, carefully crafted and edited to death. Full of metaphors and clever turn arounds.
But the idea of writing full sentences, well, it’s a little intimidating, I have to admit. Well, I don't have to, but heck, isn’t that what blogging is all about? Getting to a piece of a person that might not come out otherwise.
Just me and a blank page. So. This is me, trying my hand at blogging.
Henry, my very new to me 1yo terrier/corgi mix seems to think it’s a good idea in theory, but when it comes down to me sitting with a computer in my lap instead of him, he’s less than thrilled about my new adventure.
That all being said, I’m excited to try my hand at a new experience. A new way of sounding. I think the creative process must have several outlets to stay fresh. When one is stuck or out of steam, perhaps another outlet can provide the drive to keep going and to not feel all dried up. I’ve been a songwriter for 15 years. It’s challenging to keep up a fresh muse.
I fancy myself a cyclist, and recently came across a potential (very cheap) new to me bike. It’s mauve. I’m not a big fan of mauve. My mind went instantly to stickers, and paint, and what I could do with it to make it so much my bike that no one would ever steal it, because it could never be mistaken for someone else’s bike. I literally can’t wait to get it in my hands on it and go crazy.
Do you know they have all sorts of different colored duct tape? This girl’s dream come true.
