My Very First Post

Today I finally took my son’s and my friends’ advice and created my very own blog. I have always enjoyed writing but got away from it for a while, distracted by other not so positive or rewarding distractions. I have been fortunate that I haven’t had a major fly-me-to-the-moon manic episode in a while, but I do miss the very early stages of one; the rush of ideas, Technicolor in their brilliance, sharp as an ice pick in their intensity. The absolute certainty that I was an extremely vivacious genius who was going to save the world – right after I organize my closet by color, texture and/or season. The flood of ideas soon turns into a tsunami of incomplete thoughts, slamming into each other, crashing to the front of my mind, yelling and screaming to be heard above the din of the other dying thoughts. This is the part where I always wish there was an “off” switch. “OK – I’ve enjoyed the ride thus far, but I’d like to get off before we get to The Land of Holy Crap We’ve Gone Too Far. Unfortunately, there is no off switch, unless you count walking into a mental health facility and/or having your family take you there. But, as I get older I believe that the early stages of brilliance are within me and aren’t only accessible through a manic episode. So, I’m turning on the faucet and letting some of my thoughts come out slowly, in the hopes that I will be able to access the brilliance without the ride on the freight train of Mania. If you’ve read this far, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You are now my friend. I know this will be an interesting journey into my inner thoughts and hopefully we will laugh along the way, knowing that in retrospect, even the most insane events in my life have an element of humor.

Until next time!

  1. Yay! Can’t wait to read your stuff. I honestly had no idea it was like that. My ex is starting to make more sense to me now. Thanks for the insight girl! Keep it up!

  2. your journey itself will be a beautiful thing, and I have seen the brilliance and know it’s presence and worth, so will watch you tap it with great joy! Keep writing!

  3. The word that came to mind when I started reading was, “Beautiful”. The blog’s name, the photos, the concept. By the time I neared the end, my eyes had teared… your voice is so clear in your writing, it carried me there, to understanding and to feeling. We don’t understand why nature places that blazing and incorrigible spark of creative genius in some, or how one is reasonably supposed to contain it to survive in today’s world. That you are able to look at it at all is courage… that you have learned to touch the tap with cautious and knowing hands is brilliance of the stable kind. I look forward to your posts and to sharing your journey with you. Much love.
