Hi, gather round, pull up a seat, how are you doing?
Hope you don't mind my getting carried away and inviting you to my blog before I had anything to say. Got a wee bit excited!
Well it's nice you are here, and before I begin, I want to thank you for being part of my life, past, present or future. I am who I am partly because of you. Yup, every single one of you. Without you, I mean nothing, am nobody. You've all helped shape me in some way. There's a fantastic quote I came across recently which reminded me of this fact:
"Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born" ~ Anais Nin.
I guess this swings in both directions, huh?
Each of you will know me in different ways. I embrace the different threads of the tapestry of my life and the many incarnations I have lived through. They make me who I am today. I have been through dark times. I have experienced absolute, pure unadulterated joy. Been mad, bad and dangerous to know. Been a low down scumbag and a born again christian. A petty thief. Generous benefactor. Lover. Carer. Seeker of truth. Mother. Wife. Funker. Wiper of poo. Hopeless. Shame-faced. Ecstatic. Ridiculous. Healer. Writer. Stony broke. Flush. Mover. Shaker. Screaming bore. A Joker, a smoker and midnight toker. Soother. Inspirer. Raver. True friend. Crap friend. Rock. Whinger. Sufferer. Teacher. Pupil. Bum!
I guess I share a lot of these things with you all, being, well, human.
But by far the greatest incantation of my life is the one I am living through right now. What could be more exciting? Here and now. Feeling pretty happy about the here and now I can tell you. I have my husband and children mostly to thank for that. Without them, well I really am nothing.
We've come a long, long way together. So here we go! Stay tuned for some more musings. No more boring you all going on about me, me, me. Just thought I should start out by showing you the real deal. I'll try not to stray into weaving a fantasy of my life, nor bore y'all to death with the banalities.
Take care and see you all soon. Bye-bye now.
