I have officially started a blog. Why? Well, I would like to tell you it is because I have a lot of life-changing, earth-shaking information to share with you or even that it's because I have some incredible talent for expressing myself through the beauty of the written word. But really it's because I would like to think that having a blog will elevate me to a certain level of importance. Interesting and important people have blogs. You know: Deepak Chopra, presidential hopefuls and Paris Hilton.
Truthfully, I'm not really sure why I feel the need to blog. I have always documented my life in one medium or another whether it be painting, scrapbooking or writing. I have boxes overflowing with memorabilia from my life and journals full of useless facts about myself that I can only hope that one day when I am long gone, my family and friends will stumble upon and cry over and say "I can't believe what an incredibly talented and beautiful (grandmother, aunt, sister, friend...)we had. It's really so tragic that we never realized before. And now, alas, all we can do is publish her very unique life story to share with others".
I guess there is a part of me that believes my life is fabulous and enthralling enough that the general public will be entertained by my random musings, vacation photos, and various tales of debauchery that seem to occur for me on a regular basis. Really, who wouldn't want access to the inner workings of my brain and the link to my favorite site to buy pet toys from?
This will be a place for me to play, to vent and to share. My hope is that I will be forced to rediscover my creative side as I dig for even the most mildly amusing tidbit to post. I don't want to make any promises for the future but I can tell you that I metamorphosis more frequently than Madonna so I'll keep you on your toes. Hope you enjoy and visit often!
