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.
