Ahhh…I remember the old days of blogging when I did Creativespiritfaery. My life was busy with family and teaching and I needed a creative outlet. I tried on art. I was okay at art. I was better at blogging. I created a whole world of new friends, a place to escape and learn and grow. What was the coolest about that blogging experience was the fact that I had friends from all around the world, all ages, all ethnicities, all religions, and they were never barriers. It was never brought up. What was brought up were our common “human experiences,” our love of life, our dis.appointments, our hopes and dreams. I reveled in this world. The characters were real and supportive and encouraging and got me through some dark spots. I learned to be a better person and a better mom, and I learned to be enough.
I miss this world. I know that I will have it again as I slowly begin to rebuild my new writing community. For my friends, we have more in common than we don’t have in common, and I love learning all about you. I’m on a quest for gold, and the gold is in you…each and every one of you. I can’t wait to discover it! Won’t you send me a treasure map to find you?
