“Scared/Sacred… Just move a few letters, and it all makes sense…”
That came to me from somewhere. Is it really that simple? It might be. This is where I’m starting: Not really knowing, but doing, anyway. Moving around the A, the Alpha, the beginning. And, right now, that’s all I know.
This blog began its birthing at the Blackwell Island RV Resort in northern Idaho – a long way from my home base in Connecticut – in mid-October, 2012. But its gestation period has been a long one, borne along by the urging of loved ones, and by my finally getting tired of my own excuses for not doing it. Those excuses have been many; some of them I’m sure you’d recognize. I’m good at finding or creating excuses for not doing all kinds of things. All those excuses are still quite near, looking over my shoulder, hoping they still mean something. They no longer do, and that makes all the difference.
So far, so good.
This is the beginning of this blog, but it is far from the beginning of my lifelong journey from being “scared” to knowing the “sacred.” Now that journey has brought me to this vast internet of unknown and untried opportunities, skills, possibilities, challenges, and whatever else might be out here… Of course, I’ve dabbled around in it a bit for years, but this is different. And it’s a little scary.
It’s also very much sacred. It’s my belief that we humans are charged with experiencing and sharing with each other at least two very important things: Community, and communication. Celebration and concern. Our parties, and our souls. This is the path of Spirit… On the web, as everywhere else.
I’m taking what I like to think of as the “Star Trek Approach” to blogging: “…to explore strange new worlds; to seek out new life and new civilizations; to boldly go where [only several million other bloggers have] gone before…”
A few things you may expect to find here as time goes by: more drawings (mine); photographs (also mine); demons and little monsters (mine – and maybe yours); opinions about everything from politics to spirituality and morality to being a woman to growing older to loving oneself and others (not only my opinions here, but those of others who move me, as well); travel stories; some funny stuff; links and books and other blogs I like, and hope you will, too; and whatever else may crop up as this blog gets its own life going.
Let’s see what happens – that’s the whole point, isn’t it?
