I have been considering what I might write in this about section. From what I have read on the topic, ‘about’ is supposed to lead your readers to have a general idea of what the blog will be about. I must say that when the days of this blog are said and done.. it will have been about a great many things. I want to share my love of photography, and nature. I want to tell the stories of some of the events I have planned down to detail, the amazing people I have met, food prep, and add in some of my favorite recipes.

I will likely tell stories related to my children and my husband. They are my world. My heart longs for a place in the world that now only exists in my mind. This place was my childhood home, and holds such a peace for me and I want to share this with others. My mother, who has forever been a source of inspiration, has told me through the years to bottle the joy you feel as it comes to you, and tuck the bottle away for a time when it may be necessary dip into that joy to bring you back to center. Lately, I dream of my one time home. A place of nature, of peace, of absolute solitude, and a connection to the earth I have seldom felt anywhere else. I want to share this feeling and the memories from this place. My life has been marked with trials that have taught me a great deal, and I will likely get to the point where I am comfortable enough to tell those stories.

In addition to the personal aspect of this page I may write about things I am learning while I am at the University. There are so many things that I have learned over the last two years that have affected me, and my belief system. Some things have shaken me, and they hold a grip. Others have intrigued me and caused me to have a hunger for further knowledge in a given subject.

In closing, I want to say that I am a genuine person. The person I am in private is the person I am in public. I feel emotions very strongly, and when I love someone they have the ability to hurt me badly because of how thoroughly I love. There are those I have loved, those I love still, that prefer to believe I have an ulterior motive to anything I do. These people continue to want to tarnish my reputation with their stories. Keep in mind, there was a time when these same people loved me to. Ultimately, I have started this blog as a way to heal a place within myself that has needed to heal for a very long time. I have always loved to write, and have found that once it is on paper, or on the web as it is, and out of my mind in the expression of feeling, only then have I truly let it go, and can have peace. So here is to the beginning of my story, the beginning of a journey of healing, the first step to the joy of the rest of my life.
