This is the place where I write to figure out this thing called “life”. If in the process of reading me you feel a greater sense of connection or just a little less lonely, then this is the cherry on top of my cake. I write because it allows me to gain clarity and granularity in my own thinking. It is how I make sense of the world around me, of the events that surprise me, and the ones that challenge me. In short, I write because I am.
My interests are mainly around the theme of learning and growth as I keep on stretching myself in many directions. To date I have worn many labels: some are ongoing, some have been filed away and some are teasing me in the distance. One string connects them all: curiosity. I put my energy and interest into the following areas: mainly sewing but also reading, traveling, writing photography and baking. Putting my energy and interest into something does not, by all means, translate into me being good at any of it. It means this is what speaks to me. Also, I have a ton of Admin to take care of. I so passionately hate it that I have become a fantastic procrastinator. That being said, there should be no posts about Admin., unless I ever manage to find its silver lining. In which case I promise to share it!
With this blog, I hope to create a memento for my family. It is in here that I will share the thoughts and learnings that I wish to commit to my memory wall..
Since I’m a great starter, less of a finisher... unsure how long I can keep up with this venture... knowing that I will only write now and then, about this and that; a bit in the manner of a patchwork. Let’s see...
Before i move any further, and for the purpose of my safety, it is kindly recommended that you crank-up the volume on your heart knob - this should instantly deactivate the judgement switch located in the top part of your brain. Now I feel safe ;) Welcome to my blog.
