Gathering something…is it courage?

Dear little fish in a big pond, there's always a shark luring deep down stream.

Dear little fish in the big pond, there’s always a shark luring down deep.


I’m sitting here writing my first blog post. I’m hoping to find some kind of outlet to engage my creative side, to explore past my boundaries, cast my self into the proverbial fire of endless anons sharing any and all experiences with the pounding of keys and the clicking of buttons. I want to rearrange some output that will allow my sense of longing “in the need of expression” to take precedent. I’m writing because, once there was a time when words flowed through me the way ice is carried on the arctic seas, through turbulent winds, always able to accumulate more mass, and dredge on, creating, thriving, gathering, exploring. I’m somewhere between longing and satisfied. I truly believe that if I press myself in this capacity,  I might actually gather my lost art form and thrive in something I can sustain easily, that is, truly just for me.

I want to feel secure in what I convey as real, it may be through the guises of a blog, anonymous as it is,  but I want to be able to share with anyone whom stumbles along these lines, and sees it for what it is…or is this even what I really want to accomplish? I’m not sure, I know I’ll be twiddling my thumbs before I hit the publish icon, contemplating if this is what I really wish to convey, or should I add a recipe, or a quaint antidote of some such nonsense about motherhood. I’m not really sure where I’ll be going with any of this; I know I have to try something, do something, write something, say something. Not to anyone, not to everyone, just here, where I can stop for a second and be Faux-Real…

  1. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it
    much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to
    create your theme? Outstanding work!
