notebooks

So I start this new world, this weblog, somewhat overwhelmed. I read my favorite writers and feel I have to be as eloquent. Ain't gonna happen, let me tell you. I have my moments, but for the most part I get too nervous when I *try* to be all that. My best work comes when I relax and just write, not trying to impress anyone or myself per se. It is one of the reasons why even though I have bought numerous beautiful journals to keep with me and write my deepest thoughts in, I end up writing in a spiral notebook. The notebook demands nothing from me. The notebook accepts me as I am, no matter what I say or how I say it. I can doodle, write my grocery list, make plans and poems in it. I am freer than if I were writing in a beautiful journal.

I guess I need to think of this as a spiral bound with college rules rather than a leather bound with gold edging.

asynchronicity

Ever have one of those mornings when you wake up and everything seems just a bit off? Like you are working two steps behind the rest of the world and tripping as you try to catch up? That has been what today has been like, but I am determined to get in synch. This was the first step, doing something creative.

For the grand tour of the place, as it is right now, just note all the super weblogs that I read daily. These people are incredibly literate and lovely to read. The right mix of politics, spirituality and fun. Click on them and enjoy.
