Hello? Is This Thing On?

So wow. Was my last post here really a year and a half ago? Hard to believe. Are any of my followers still signed up? I wouldn't wonder if they're not.

It's strange how life moves and grows and twists and turns and tumbles us about like laundry in a dryer. Misplacing some of us like the other sock. Or spiriting us away, if you believe in the sock fairy.

Ever feel like that? Like even though you're there in  your life, you're not really there in your life? Days bleed together and then weeks and months and before you know it, a year and a half has passed and you awake to find you've been checked out all this time? That somewhere along the way, you've lost your voice? Your platform? Your say-so?

Not that life hasn't been busy. Most likely, it's because it's been so busy that other things, things like this blog, for example, have fallen by the wayside. But I never forgot. Somewhere in the back of my mind, like the faded remembrance of a dream you once had, I knew this place was still here. Sitting quiet and still and patient, waiting for the day I'd need it again. Waiting for the day I'd find my voice.

So here I am. Ready to speak up and speak out about the one word that still most accurately describes who I am at my very core: WRITER.

If you've got a voice, I'd love to hear from you. If you're still searching for yours, like that missing sock, you're welcome to borrow mine until you find it. We'll make a colorful mismatched pair together.

I was hitting "Next Blog" for a change and after about 6 clicks landed here! It really is funny how life seems to take off on us sometimes, and how we leave pieces of ourselves at the back of the drawer until it's time to fish them out again and recreate the 'person' that we really are (if that makes any sense to you, I'm amazed!) I'm happy that you're finding your voice took me about 25 years to find mine, and daily I'm discovered what it really sounds like! Thanks for sharing. I needed that little tidbit tonight. :)
God bless!

Wow, Christina, I knew you were a talented crater but your writing, your voice, is...I'm struggling to find the right words... relatable, down to earth, insightful, calm. I look forward to reading more :)

Oh my goodness, wow! Thank you both so much. Honestly. I never expected to get any comments, considering how long it's been since I wrote the post previous to this one.

Your kind words have absolutely made my day, and encouraged me to keep writing, keep working to make myself heard.

Sincere and heartfelt thanks.
