Weebly has overcome its problems with support and I was able to publish this site after many weeks of waiting. I have a lot of work to do on my various long-languishing writing projects, but I feel renewed; my energy, creative force, and muses have come back to me. I am so thankful.
I've also realized that Facebook makes it possible to reconnect with kindred spirits, both long-lost and newly discovered, and express oneself in a stream of consciousness that, while self-indulgent to be sure, is a lot less expensive and, I imagine, much more interactive than psychotherapy. It's fascinating to see which comments, quotes, songs, articles - whatever interests me - is, in turn, interesting to which friends, and to find out what they are doing, thinking, feeling, appreciating. That interaction has woken me up from a long dull sleep, and I'm so grateful.
I am embarking on an unexpected, exhilarating, and, yes, terrifying adventure. I just hope my inspiration and courage can withstand the lures of familiarity and comfort. I know my loved ones will be with me wherever I may go. I am undeservedly blessed with their presence in my life. And when I am old, I don't want to remember my wonderful daydreams; I want to tell stories about what I did, win or lose, to make them come true.
