A little about me:
I don’t profess to be a writer by any stretch of the imagination – in fact the rules of written English language have bedeviled me most of my life. I’ve always enjoyed writing, but throughout my many years of schooling I was consistently told I lacked the proper writing skills. Well, I’ve decided to toss that notion in the trash bin where it belongs.
I impressed myself that I got to the point where this blog could go live. My husband is encouraging of me in this endeavor. My sons are both admiring of my foray into social media, and apprehensive at how their mother might embarrass them.
I pull from my personal life for my writings. Whatever I’ve written is ultimately about me. That’s not an exercise in self-satisfaction, it’s an acknowledgment that whatever failings I find in those closest to me – the same and more is invariably within me. My family has so generously given me permission to use them as a means of uncovering my own flaws and opportunities for enlightenment. Time will tell if I do their gift justice.
I have no answers – just questions, thoughts and musings. I’ve found in my life that if something resonates with me I try to take it in. If it doesn’t I let it go or tuck it into my back pocket until I’m ready to revisit it.
The name for this blog came from a saying by Ram Daas “We’re all just walking each other home.” Thank you for walking with me.
