I know what I want this blog to be. It’s going to come out in short pieces, but I’ll get there.
As I start to recognize blogs and writing that I like, I’m noticing the articles are deeply personal and the writers are opening up completely. It’s like there is a direct link from brain to keyboard. You feel like you could share a few beers with that person.
I’m not sure how I’m going to get there. I have too many thoughts to share and don’t yet know how to translate them to public words, but it’s a place I need to get to.
I hope with each post I can learn to expose a little more, so I can connect with people who need to know they are not alone in whatever this is that makes us contemplate, feel anxious, and write.
There is a sensitivity in artists that others don’t experience. Even if you don’t create, you may have that sensitivity inside you. It needs to come out. You need to express it in some way. You need to throw it against the walls of the universe and see what comes back.
I don’t consider myself an artist but I have that sensitivity. I can feel it in my gut. I’m trying to see what that feeling is so I can rip it out — so others can see it to.
I’ll get there because I have to.
