So, I’m taking another first step. It’s a little like dipping one’s toes into the deep end of the pool; however, I would never do that if I could avoid it. I don’t like pools. I don’t like bodies of water contained or not contained, and the idea of dipping any part of my body into one of them results in an unwelcome anxiety attack. Hmm… why did I use that analogy? I don’t know. It was the first one that came to mind, and it works!
Anyway, here it is – my first authentic publication – Love and Lovers – a book of poems by yours truly…
Publishing this book has been enlightening, scary, humbling, a little painful here and there, but, overall, a sweet and freeing experience. These words that have been in hiding in boxes, journals, and pressed deep down in my soul have finally caused enough havoc for me to allow them to escape. I have lightened my load a little, so to speak, and it feels really good.
Maybe a few of these words will touch you or, perhaps, reach out and grab you. If so, I am even more pleased to have shared my feelings. If not, just accept them as one girl’s heartfelt experiences and leave it at that.
One of my personal mottos is, “Leap, and the net will appear!” After a long time of trying to balance on the edge, I leapt.
Still looking for the net…..
Just a thought …
