One Bold Step For Me

So ... blogging. It's like a conversation or party I've been dying to join (for over a year now) but just like at parties I'm the one listening to multiple conversations and always to shy to say anything or I'm afraid that if I throw a party no one would come. So this here paragraph that's the bold step. I have a blog. I blog. I don't just want to, or mean to but I really do. For the moment it doesn't even matter that no one is here but me. (why would there be?) But it's one less thing to procrastinate about and to just try rather than waiting till I have the most profound thoughts or gorgeous handmade stuff to share. Here it is a place for all those stray notions. At the very least a way to commit my ideas to writing (with a date attached) and appropriate action to hold myself accountable -- be it for finishing a project, speaking out on an issue or sharing some of the beauty i find in the world.

Tommorrow I'll pretend I have and actual audience and introduce myself properly, how's that?
