Is there something that gives you joy, makes your heart sing? A talent, an interest that makes you look forward to waking up the next day?
One of mine is writing – finding the best word or phrase to express an emotion or capture a moment.
So in answer to a recent question from a good friend, “Why blog?” I say because the process excites even this timid woman, who has been reluctant to share her work. (Another reason – the one that pushed me into the blogging world – is that an online presence is now a basic requirement if you want to be published.)
The young woman in this artwork by “curly girl,” Leigh Standley, captured my joy when I made some long overdue life changes.
I bought it as a reminder to listen to song in my heart and embrace the joy of expressing it on paper. That’s at the heart of why I began to blog!
