There comes a time in all journeys when a person needs to take a moment to access, reevaluate, or maybe just clarify. That is where I find myself. It has been brought to my attention that I am not a writer and lack the skill and discipline the craft requires. I would not, nor do I argue with this assessment. So what am I ? and what am I trying to do? I am a delivery driver, I spend a lot of time by myself, I prefer natural landscapes to cities, I will choose a friend over a party every time. What I am I trying to do is not so easy to explain on one hand and very clear on the other. I can not honestly tell you why someone like me would choose to expose himself, especially on social media, which he had always avoided with a great deal of success. I would like to think it is because it might help someone going through a problem of their own and give a voice to my thoughts. Perhaps, this is true or maybe on some level I am motivated by fear and this is my confessional. Whatever, that is not the topic for today.
Today, I want to tell anyone kind enough to read what I am attempting to do with this blog. You have no idea how hard it is for me to call it a blog, although if you just listen to the sound of the word, it is a good representation of my writing style. From this point on, my blog will consist of two type of posts; my regular unedited, mistake riddle posts and on occasion feature articles, where I go into more depth with help of an editor and produce a much more polish piece. My regular posts are not meant to be literary compositions, but conversations. My talent lies more in the realm of heart to heart. I have heard people use the phrase I want to start a dialogue, but seldom thought they understood the concept. A conversation is like a dance in many ways, in a conversation you suspend judgement not morals, your first effort is to understand, it has a rhythm and movement that goes beyond the technical skill of the dancers and when you can anticipate your partner’s next move with only a look, there is a connection that goes beyond words, semicolons or periods. At least, I hope so, since I don’t know how to use any of that stuff. I will attempt to do a better job of proofreading, although the treatments and medications do not help this endeavor.
Other times I will try to produce a much more polished piece, I really would like to get better at this. Hopefully, this combination will provide not only a meaningful outlet for me and a way to improve, but will be enjoyable for those who read. I have a really bad headache so I think I will take some more of their drugs. Good-bye for now thanks
