Growing Up and Coming Home

I’ve been gone a long time. It’s been a tough few years.

The writing illness has flared up again and I am powerless in it’s grip. So I’m back.

It is hard to pick up the pieces of a broken, abandoned blog and try to make it fresh and living again.

I’ve found a talent, almost a calling for making things grow. This was an accident. I spent hours, weeks, years digging and sweating. Alone with the songs of birds and the gurgle of water in the ditch I started to hear God again. I’ve started growing myself, trying to give my own soul the same care and kindness I’ve put into my kids, the stray animals and lost pets, the endless sad and sick plants I’ve taken in.

And slowly the vines of time have chipped at my walls and stone work until the Poetry started to seep out again. A new direction has come to me, to use this dusty old blog as a place to post poems and writing projects, maybe a bit about the garden or quick notes from the kitchen to break it up.

I hope my readers enjoy this new direction. I’m excited to be hatching.

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. I'm kinda-sorta busy being a student again; this time I signed myself up for a bizarre torture known as Graduate School. Theoretically in 4ish years I'll have earned some more nice letters to put with my name. Let's face it, I'm addicted to learning and probably need rehab to restore me to sanity and remove the obsession to read books. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
