Thanks to the lovely Kate I've learned about National Blog Posting Month. I've never been much of a journaler or blogger or, really, much of one for writing anything on a regular basis. But I'd like to be writing a bit if not actually blogging on a somewhat regular basis, and I'm hoping that by signing up to post every. single. day. I might actually do something with this space. No promises, but the act of signing up for something might be the kick start that I want for this.

Starting (and stopping...and starting...)

Why is it so hard to know where to start things? Or, to end them and figure out where to start, or how to start over again? I have lots of things I want to write about, and yet the task of writing an introduction to this space seems difficult if not overwhelming. So many interests, so many things to say, and yet so little comes out sometimes.

I've started writing this numerous times over, literally, the course of months as I thought about what to say, and how to say it, and when and how. But, it strikes me that maybe this is a process that can't be mapped right now. And, more than that, maybe it's not worth mapping, or maybe something is lost in the planning. And so I'm going to write. And maybe sometimes I'll delete too. But getting to wherever I'm going is half the fun, I think, and so here goes nothing.
