Whew. I need some air!!!
The past year has been fairly traumatic for me, with moments of joy as well.
I feel rather wounded and beaten down by the events of the last half of December. First our fire with its infant victims, then our officer getting shot and paralyzed. Add it to a long list of tragedy this past year, and I do feel like the emotional Mack truck has been running over me, then throwing it in reverse to make sure the job got done right!!
WIth all of this, my writing has been a bit heavy. A BIT I say, knowing that it is more than a bit heavy.
I need some air!!!!
I need lightness... feather lightness and frolicking--in my life, and especially, in my writing. I'm getting out all these deep and dark feelings of just being so wounded, and world-weary.... but truly, even with these things, I know and acknowledge I am so very blessed.

I met Martina McBride in October. Maybe I'll write something about that. It could only be comical.

My best friend is getting married in a month and 10 days-- I won't delve too deep into my feelings on that, it gets into the morose and self-pity (so nevy you mind about that!)

Anyway, I need some air!! I need to revel, to jaunt about, to find the little imp's that seem to take to hiding when the more treacherous demons take up residence in my head, and get them out and performing mischief. huh. That in itself might be a good thought to start with.

OooooKAY.. enough ramblings the whole world will know I'm nuts!!! :-)

Hey JewelL,
I tip my hat off and "air's to you". . . sending some North Western Crispy wintry air.

I think you have a book of poetry to write, all that angst, worries, heart-ache are stories waiting to happen, let it all flow out, more room out than in.......Make room for the positive flows.

I enjoyed reading this........I too could write some heavy dark quicksand stuff........think I will just repost old things!!!

Good luck,
