"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us." -Emerson

What lies within...

One of my all time favorite quotes is, "What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us." How true that is! Shortly, I will mark the first year of being a mother and while the experience has been perhaps the greatest joy and love I have ever known, I also realize that some of what lies within me has been lost amidst dirty diapers and sleep deprivation.

I am a writer. I have always been a writer and I have not been writing like I used to. I have pages that await to be filled and ideas that are wanting to be expressed, but I have not found the time nor the energy to do so...until now.

So, this is my new blog. My new way to muse on and on about all the things that lie within me with a certain amount of anonymity or not as the case may be. It has no theme, no main idea, nothing, but myself. It truly will probably be a stream of consciousness more than anything else, who knows? I guess we will just see where it takes me.

I guess the beginning of this all came from a simple question I was asked recently... "What do you like to do?" It stopped me in my tracks. I cook, I like to workout, I like my family. Wow, I sound dull and boring, like I have no creativity or interests besides the daily grind. Then, it hit me, I like to write, I love it in fact. So, here is to being more interesting and finding a new answer...

Until next time.
