I’m sitting here looking at a recent notification on my blog. I’ve officially written one hundred pieces on it. To some, this is a drop in the bucket. But, to me it means so much more. The inner writer that has struggled to return for many years after he stopped back in high school-is back. Everyone here in this community of writers, knows that there is nothing more exhilarating than making your ideas into a tangible piece that can be savored by another.
Part of my recent “resurrection” back into writing has been in meeting a certain poet that inspired me to start again. I’m not going to embarrass her here, but I will be eternally grateful for her presence in my life. She always refutes my gratitude claiming she did nothing, but that couldn’t be any further from what I feel.
I’ve enjoyed my time here in this community and will continue to contribute whatever ideas pop into my head.
Thanks for listening, dear reader.
