A dear friend asked me why I want to start a blog, and I told her that it was because I had this creative impulse—this itch that needed to be scratched in my head and my heart, and I didn’t know exactly what form it was going to take, but I needed to do it.
And that was true, but what I thought of later that’s also true is that people whose blogs I read make me feel better about being myself. I read some really amazing, wonderful blogs, where ideas are shared that do everything from brightening my day to changing my life. And knowing that there are people out there that feel the same way I do and put those feelings into words so beautifully can really save my day sometimes. So I guess part of what I want to do with this blog is to give a little of that back. Because what's the point of all being here together if we can't help each other out?
