One year ago, today, I started my WordPress journey. It was my first ever attempt at blogging AND my first time sharing my words with more than one or two close friends. I wasn’t sure if anyone would even find me amoung the thousand of blogs out there… much less find my offerings of value. I wasn’t sure if this was the right avenue for me or if I would even continue more than a week or two. Now, here we are.
The support I’ve found here is amazing. Beyond the “follows” and the “likes” I have experienced some heartfelt, thoughtful comments, critique and encouragement. I have even made some connections that now extend outside of this blogging world; making friends I hope will be part of life for years to come. All of this is to say Thank You to all of you. Because of you I have not abandoned this journey and I am truly living in the land of the word that I so love for the first time in ages. In fact, I’m currently working on a book of poetry and a novel…something I have never had the courage to actually pursue before. It was always only a dream, until now, until you.
This WP community is full of talented people and I am happy to be one of them. 🙂
And because this is always all about the words, the art, the poetry…I leave you with a poem or 3.
I hear the rain
as it advances
you rush inside
I’ll take my chances
I’m not afraid
of getting wet
the pouring rain
helps me forget
away the shame
accumulated through years of pain
It’s raining here, the skies are grey
but I do not feel that way
I am not sad, I don’t feel blue
I close my eyes and think of you
with face upturned and arms outstretched
your love for me doesn’t seem farfetched
it’s raining here, I dance and sing
for in the rain, my heart takes wing
