So this is the obligatory “why am I writing this blog” post.
Well, I love reading blogs, and have always thought it would be fun to have one of my own. And right now I have a lot on my mind that I want to share.
Past – I’ve been through a rather painful break-up, which has taught me an incredible amount, some of which is starting to come out as poems or prose.
Present – I’m in a very reflective mood, doing a lot of reading which sets off a lot of thinking… and it’s nice to have somewhere to collect my thoughts.
Future – I’m in a real time of change. By the end of this year I plan to be doing something completely new and different – possibly being a professional singer. It’s scary, but I’m also full of ideas about where I want to go and I’d like to have a record of the year.
And it seems fun to write all these down and launch the occasional message in a bottle onto the wild waters of the web. I have no idea if the bottle will ever wash up on anyone’s beach… but no harm in trying!
