The First Step

Stare at empty screen.  Struggle to think of something to write that is clever, funny or both.

Decide to just start writing something.  This is the first blog in what I hope will be an ongoing communication with the world around me.  I am a writer, a fiber artist, a cook, a seamstress, a “puller of rabbits out of hats,:” a fluent speaker of ‘database’ (if I could teach what I do, I could probably make a small fortune), a friend to talk to, sometimes shy, a Steampunk, and still struggling to figure out what I want to be when I ‘grow up.’

I like that paragraph.  Think I’ll keep it.  Provides many a jumping off point for things to write about as I begin to “re-invent” my life once again.

This morning as I woke up I realized that if I want my life to change, I have to change what I’m doing.

So I invite you to come along and share the progress on my journey of change and growth.  I’ll share my experiences, resources that have helped me, things that worked and things that didn’t.  You’ll see articles I’ve written, maybe a poem or two.

I may encounter stumbles and roadblocks along the way.  When that happens, I hope to use this space to share what I learned from them; perhaps provide some tips and tricks to help others going through similar things.

So that’s my starting point, I hope you enjoy being part of the journey with me.
