Welcome to day one of my new blog!
I love beginnings.
I make New Years resolutions, which I later abandon, of course. I wander through bookstores reading first pages of novels. Mondays are my favorite day of the week. Turning the calendar page each month starts my heart beating wildly. Heck, opening a new jar of peanut butter is cause for celebration.
Oh, the possibilities!
Above all, I desire that this becomes a place to build friendships. One of my favorite authors, C.S. Lewis, once said, “We read to know we’re not alone.” Stories are a very human endeavor. We reveal parts of ourselves in the telling that we hope others will recognize in themselves. We complete the circle by saying, “Me too!”
Won’t you stop by often? You have lots of places to be in cyber space, so I promise to make your visit worth your while.
If I run across something delicious or beautiful, or read a fabulous story, or see afresh the love of Father God—you’ll be the first to know.
Above all, I promise to be honest. I understand how curious I am to some. I mean, really, a telephone call from the past? Huckleberry Finn in the flesh? A woman who travels by touching a map? This blog should shine a light on where all these ideas come from.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
And come back again soon.
