Love of Writing

Writing is something I have always loved to do. As far as I can remember, the love of pen and paper in all it’s flow and permanence. I remember I wanted to be a teacher when I “grew up”.  A desk, books, pen and paper drew me in like a magnet. In a perfect world the “happily ever afters” and the “fulfilled” goals and dreams are subjects movies are famous for. I don’t think you can have a best seller without a happy ending…or can you? I guess it depends on the story.

Back to my reality…

Once upon a time I wrote what I thought was an honest and open letter. I felt that by writing my thoughts it would make it easier to express myself. Lets just say that the outcome was far from what I envisioned. The content and purpose of said letter was twisted and skewed. “It” became a weapon and further muzzled and destroyed “my voice”.

Walking in the valley of the shadow of death, somehow, is helping me find “my voice”. A deep mystery I have yet to understand.  And, so the journey continues…one step at a time.

The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!

“Ready Pen” – Listening deeply, writing freely.  I love to write (more on my next post).  Providence has placed me in the depth of grief and sorrow.  Somehow the depth of these waters rather than take me under are bringing me to a place of freedom I thought was mine.  This blog is part of my journey.  Ready to write and allow the deep inner pain (or humor or sarcasm or whatever) to flow freely through ink.
