First blog post

Really? Really, Life?

Life, are you really motivating me to write a blog to comment on your idiosyncrasies, foibles, and serendipity?  Understanding you at times is like placing a piece into a jigsaw puzzle:  the piece looks right, but it’s not the correct fit.  Other times understanding you is like confidently running down stairs, inexplicably missing the final step, and sprawling skinned and bruised on the pavement. Understanding you can also be like expecting a blind date to be Brad Pitt and finding Ramsey Bolton at the front door instead.  Brad may melt a heart, but Ramsey much prefers to pierce a heart–literally–into pieces. Then when I am at the pinnacle of my confusion, running in a dark forest, tripping on roots, and failing to find the correct trail to escape your bogeyman,  I stumble upon a clearing.  Overhead, a brilliant shaft of sunlight points to the path of safety.

Really, Life?  Really!

  1. Welcome! I started my blog reluctantly as a bit of a dare from a friend and I’m still here three years later. Just warning you. 😉

  2. And … “You’re off!” on a blogging adventure. A good start and I loved your comparison of Brad Pitt versus Ramsey Bolton. IMO, it’s all about enjoying the writing and creative process. Good luck! Anita

  3. You are so right on with this blog! I think that everyone has felt this at some point in their lives and you have found a great way to explain it. Great job! I look forward to more posts for you.

  4. I certainly have felt the same way lately. I feel like life has thrown so many curve balls lately that I myself needed to start a blog as well. Good luck on your new adventure!
