So I never came back

I think in my last post I said I was going to start writing here every day.  It is very obvious that did not happen.  I often disappoint people.

It has occurred to me that many, many people travel so as to maintain their sanity.  That just occurred to me right now, in this moment.  I thought it was only me who made that up.  And to have my Uncle Bill say to me, “I’m happy that you’re traveling all around,” well that was just amazing.

It takes courage for me to travel.  I’m not afraid of flying.  But it is all at once intimidating and exhilarating for me to change locations on the planet.  Can’t explain it more than that.

Next week is my friend Anne’s birthday.  It was in thinking of her that made me realize travel can maintain, or restore, or invigorate, one’s sanity.  I still haven’t gotten to the bottom of it quite yet, but I will.

The blog gods appear to be against me

Yesterday I vowed to really truly begin writing my blog.  I wrote some stuff which I thought was moderately profound.  I thought I saved it as a draft for further work.  Today it does not appear to be anywhere.

Yet I am undaunted.  I refuse to give up.  I am going to be a blogger.

My writing from yesterday was a precursor to a recent trip to Ireland.  I’m going to publish this right now, and get back to details later today.  See you then.

Blogging from the iPhone

Well this certainly is convenient. However this teeny tiny keyboard is for the birds.

Brand New Blogger

Okay.  This is my new blog.  I’m just learning to navigate the whole thing, so be patient with me.

What do I want to blog about?  Well my original thought was to blog about my struggle with autoimmune disease, thinking it might help other people.  But I’m sure I’ll stray into other topics.

I have a lot of interests.  I don’t know where this might take me.  But I’m excited to get started.  Excellent!
