insert cup of something warm here
Whoosh! That was a lovely ride.
Sit down here with me a bit and let me tell you how grateful I am for you. Have I ever shared my dreams with you? Have I told how much I love to write and how hard and lonely it gets doing it, especially when your office is a couch with spit-up on it? I could write instead of eat, and that’s saying a lot for me.
When I was in the MFA program for Poetry, I whirled about in writerly fits trying to muster a voice by rubbing shoulders with the published scene kids, and it didn’t work no matter how unruly or unhappy I became. If someone had told me that a blog would cure my writerly ills (lack of voice), I would have died.
I think that when I held my first baby in my arms, I held my voice for the first time, too. But I wouldn’t have heard it had you not been one to revisit the run-a-muck. You have helped me find a voice by giving me the accountability I need to write. I feel like I meet God here, and I can’t be dramatic enough in saying that I LOVE YOU and Thank You.
I have this friend. She is absolutely gorgeous, one of those cool girls who walks in her own thing, her own style. She is godbeautiful and famous for endurance and heavenward perspective. Ginny has a bad-to-the-bone jewelry shop that I love to peruse, and you have to check it out: The Addition Shop. She has graciously offered these unique earrings to one of my readers today. They’re bronze and so chic.
Don’t you like them?
This is what I’m thinking. When someone in my bloglines moves to a new location, she is asking me to do some work. I have to update her little linky. Are you seeing where I’m going with this?
If you update my new blog TheRunaMuck.com in your bloglines (or if you’ve been meaning to add me to your bloglines (;wink;wink), today is the day (actually before tomorrow noon). Leave me a comment saying the job has been done, or you can leave a comment and let me know how you like the new design by Shauna (She is truly the coolest), and I’ll put your name in my mixer. After I stir the names up a bit, I’ll get my handsome hubby to do the honors. The winner will be announced Saturday morning!
I’ll try to have a new About page and my Bloglines completed this weekend, too. I do still have several boxes to unpack here. Thanks for coming, and I’ll see you tomorrow for a little giggle session.
