The sun is out! Life is for the living and when it is this bright, it is hard not to smile and soak up what's being provided. I'm sitting in my boyfriends house (Andrew's) with the light pouring in through the window gently massaging my soul. If I were one of Jacks' beans that were hurled out the window into the dirt, I too would grow above the clouds and be dancing amongst the giants, trying not to get stomped on!
So this is my first blog, I'm a late starter but I have shown up to this party. I really did not know too much about blogging and now I've met the man of my dreams and I've been keeping a keen eye on his writing, and it made me consider having one all on my own. I have found Facebook a rather awful experience and one that became too consuming and addictive. Where as this platform seems to fit me a bit better like your favourite t-shirt, and I no longer have to look at people posting that they just bought something or that they are off to the gym or some such thing. It is interesting to see what people are doing at times and great to see that they are doing well, but it can become hard to muster up a conversation when you know everything!
In the end though, one good thing that did come from Facebook was the re-connection with the people from my past. Of two in particular is my girlfriend Emily and her sister Bez. Many years had flown by and we had not seen or heard from each other and Emily found my father in Malaysia through the web! It was one of lifes' precious gifts getting Em and Bez back and Facebook was fun for a while i admit, as it helped us in our communication and frequent chatting sessions. We even got engrossed in Cityville which was fun but WOW!, what a time-waster. Thanks Facebook! You did well for a bit but now it's time to start enjoying being my own journalist and reading from other people who are really thinking about what they are saying.
I look forward to sharing stories, posting pictures, music, articles, quotes and hopefully along the way meeting some kindred spirits.
