Sometimes they should remain in 'our brain.' But not always. I don't consider myself to be a great thinker or even an awesome writer. Just an ordinary person...stepping lightly on her path. I often hop, and dance, and bump, and skip, and I've been known to do a cart wheel or two. Maybe a round-off here and there. And after giving it much consideration, I'm leaving this journal public. Period.
I'm not living in fear, anymore.
Sam and I had a very heartfelt talk about this very topic the other day. And regardless of what some people may think and say...and you know who you are...I will continue to write. I have something to share and say, about a lot of things. I will say them and here is where it will happen. While I had already made my mind up about this days before, I queried Sam about it; he always brings a different perspective to things and I wanted to know his thoughts. Bottom line is he supports my writing, but it was when he said, "You don't need to justify why you write to anyone, including me." Wham! Bam! Thank you Sam! He nailed it.
Justify. Just=properly due or merited; -ify=from.
He colored my world a different color. A color that reminded me that I love life. I love sharing. I love helping. I love writing. I love reading. I love communicating. I don't have to explain to anyone why. Yes, there are people I will interact with who just don't get it...or get me; maybe they never will. And while I do value them as individuals and may sometimes even value their opinions, when it comes to this journal...my place...they have no right to question what I write or think. I have survived many things...the wrath of humans and the natural world...things most people can't imagine. And here I am, still standing (thank you, Marc).
There's a reason I am. I'm going to find out what it is and this may be the very place where I find the answer.
PS. I've been without internet for the past week...hopefully tonight I will be back on-line.
