sometimes words are worth a thousand pictures...

[a poem I had written 5 yrs ago for my then-boyfriend now-husband]

I used to write.  A lot.  And for a long time, it was my one and only source of solace.  But in the past few years, the ink in my pen had dried up, and it pains me to say it to myself, but I don't even know where I've placed my journal.  I have to find it.  And I need to find time again to write... because I've slowly come to the realization that I'm not whole unless my words find a place... or should I say, their place.  This seems daunting to me at the moment, which is strange because writing used to come rather easily to me.  So I'll start chipping at it.. a little at a time.  We'll see what happens.

Recently, through my random meanderings online, I came across formspring.me -- and it just clicked.  This site can help get my pen moving again and offer a place for my words, even if it's only a 'virtual' place.  It'll be my daily writing exercise, and you are an integral part!  So go on.. spark something! ...a question...a thought...or just a word...

With everything that we do online it seems that there is enough writing, but isn't not they right type of writing...is it? It's not often from our imagination and heart. I also need to get back to it.

I think your blog is a new form of your writing because it connects you with others in the same way that writing on paper would allow you to share your ideas. :)

In any case, I enjoy reading your blog and hope you will find the spark for your personal writing as well. I'm sure it is still there just waiting for you to emote.

Have a fabulous day, sweetie!! xoxo

I understand completely what you mean. Sometimes the things we enjoy most are put aside for more pressing daily matters. Before we know it, years have gone by.

I feel it's important to nuture our creative side. I'm glad you've decided to rekindle your old passion. I hope it will become a new passion. Keep us posted :)
