the return

It has taken me far too long to write this post and even longer to publish it! Can you believe my Word document last revised date is May 4th.

I could go into all of the reasons (and there are many and some may even be valid) as to why I disappeared over the past two years. I may over time. But if I am being wholly honest and speaking the absolute truth, the fact of the matter is that I got scared!

I was afraid and I still am!

People I know and people I didn’t know were reading this thing, commenting, and saying how much they enjoyed it! Fortunately, I hadn’t come across anyone who said that it was awful and that would have scared me even more. I began to feel pressure, admitted entirely of my own making, to post something wonderful and witty and funny and insightful all the time.

And in my fear, I didn’t post a thing!

Instead, I read about fear, talked to my friends about fear, and attempted to analyze my fear, and quaking in my boots, I came to some conclusions.

One of my problems was I forgot why I started this blog in the first place: (1) To share my experiences and my thoughts (for what they are worth) on things that make me happy and, I believe, could make you, the reader, happy as well. (2) To make me happy, too!

 This blog did make me happy. Once! And then I became afraid. But, I have decided to write in spite of my fear. And, as it turns out, doing something in spite of fear is essential if you want to…

enjoy life…
