I didn't think I would ever do this, but here I am! And why not? I am not doing this for anyone but myself. I have been jotting my thoughts and feelings down on paper for years, and that is quite apparent when one views all of the stacks and stacks of journals all over the house. It has always been a very private matter. So easy to close the book -- a blank and unimaginative cover that seals in the thoughts and heartbeats within. Writing here on this screen is like an invasion of my inner self, open, exposed, for all of the world's prying eyes to see. Now, I know that is not the case, it is only in my mind that I should feel that way. I'm going to try this; I am going to dig and delve into the soul of me and perhaps discover a portion of me that I never knew to exist, and it will be here on this blank and unwritten page. It will be an adventure! And I do love adventure!
