Here I am: a single mother of two grown kids, a dog lover, a crafty girl, a cooking enthusiast, a neglectful gardener, an avid reader, an Orange County resident, a sister, daughter, girlfriend…
The hardest part of starting this here blog was narrowing down the focus. In fact, you could say that being unfocused is a big part of my focus. I’m trying to figure it all out. I’m defining the next chapter. And I’ve decided to do it publicly, as publicly as public interest allows, anyway. In other words, read along if you’re interested.
I had my kids young– one at 20, one at 23. I missed a lot of the experiences that young adults have, and I told myself that I’d just make it all up when the kids were grown. After all, I thought, I’ll still be young.
Well, it’s here. Both kids are in college, working on their own lives–it’s time for me to get my own. And yes, I guess I’m still relatively young, but I feel so unprepared! It’s my turn to explore and have fun, but the truth is that I don’t know where to start.
Sometimes when you don’t see a clear path, you can take some small steps and the direction will begin to reveal itself. I know that writing and creative pursuits are a big part of who I am. So I will use that to figure out the rest of who I am.
I think I feel a post coming on.
