out there

she was off on another adventure and was glad that she wasn’t alone this time

This is going to sound very peculiar – but i really thought i was the only person who thought like i did. Seriously.  I thought that perhaps it was a pathology, not quiet normal, but i didn’t mind, i quiet liked the fact that i was 'different'.

I’ve been blog hopping – visiting here and there, mostly the more ‘famous’ blogs, as my fourteen year old would say.  I thought about starting my own blog but was unsure, how do i begin, but then again have i ever known how to begin?  Eventually, i got the courage, sat down a few Sundays ago and took the plunge and just began, it wasn’t too tough to do.  

What a revelation, its as if a whole new dimension has opened up, i’m reading the most incredible blogs, discovering people that think just like i do!!! Seriously.  I’m so excited by this world that is unfolding, the discoveries i’m making, it makes me feel like a treasure hunter.  I’m discovering the most marvelous treasures, peoples’ art and words are like bright dazzling jewels, the energy of peoples’ creativity is uplifting, powerful, dynamic – live changing – and hooray i’m not alone!!!!
