Begin Again

I think it's time to come back to this blog. Not because it's important, but because every so often I have something I want to discuss deeply with myself, and it works well for me to do it here. If I write something I know others might read, it forces me to take better care with my words and my thoughts. It helps me sort out that random blah blah blah that runs through most human heads most of the time. 

Some people meditate. I'd rather eat dirt. Some people journal. I find that an excuse to be too self-indulgent and whiney, and something that must be hidden from others. Too exhausting, on many levels.

So here I am, in Portland, in winter, thinking deep thoughts, or just going for a walk to see the Christmas lights downtown. Hang out here with me while I process some stuff, if you want, or not. This is actually all about me, and if it benefits you in some way, well I think that's just lovely.


  1. I am so glad I have remained subscribed to your blog. And isn't Portland grey during the winter.

  2. Hullo there!! Meditating and journalling are not for me, either. I have what I tag as "soapbox moments" on my blog if I have a sudden attack of the deep-and-meaningfuls. Nice to see you back! X

    P.S. I am wearing my Christmas Troll bangle today. One of my charms is a little yellow bird bought from you to help fund an Africa trip about 7 years ago - I was thinking about you as I put it on this morning!!

  3. Haha, I burned 35 years of daily journals in the most magnificent backyard bonfire just before we embarked on this full-time traveling journey. I have taken a vow of "No more journaling!" Blogging is more rewarding and paper free -- and as you said, I take more care with my words.

    So happy to have you back! xoxo

  4. How nice to know there are at least 3 of you out there! And you get it! I know you know how good it feels to be heard and understood, so thank you. xoxoxoxo

  5. Merry Christmas. I will enjoy news of Portland seen through your eyes.

  6. Hey! I'm here, too! Keep writing and I'll keep reading. <3
