I’ve been dreaming of starting a blog for years. I’ve been thinking about starting this particular blog for weeks and yet, here it is a half-hour before bed-time on the one particular day that I absolutely, positively MUST start this blog and I find myself unprepared. I’m going to dive in anyway, because I promised myself I would start a blog today.
Why today? Today is my 59th birthday. Today, I begin my 60th year. There are some things I want to do this year. Creative things. I’ve been wanting to do them for years, but I have been just dreaming about doing them and reading about doing them instead of actually doing them. I need the motivation to start making things and I want this blog to be that motivation.
There’s more to it than that, of course, but I’ve been typing and revising this little bit of an entry for a half-hour and now it’s bed time. I’m technologically challenged and I will have to learn as I go, but I’m starting now.
Today, on the first day of my sixtieth year, it begins.
