Here we are five days into the new year, and already this will be my fourth 'journal entry'. Why that's almost an entry a day! Now if I could just keep this up. Like most bloggers, I go into long lapses in writing because I think to myself that my writing could not possibly be of interest to anyone. I guess I need to remind myself of one the reasons why I began to blog: as a form of expression. Like the artist who picks up the brushes and starts painting on a blank canvas, I pick up my keyboard and begin to type about the things which stir within me. Slowly I begin to see the portrait I am trying to depict with words. It's like looking through a window into a faraway horizon, and with each stroke seeing details of that horizon more clearly.
I realize my last post was almost cryptic, and it really was not my intention to sound mysterious. I think it was just an exercise in writing honestly and from the heart. It was certainly an exercise in writing outside of my comfort zone. I may decide to pursue the topic in a future post, but I have a feeling I won't. Quite simply because some things are better left unsaid. Besides, it's time to move on, turn a new leaf and let go of old baggage. And on to better and bigger things!
