New year, old hobby

I was never one to make many resolutions, much less stick to any of them. I figured January 1 of the new year was really just another new day, of the new week, of the new month. But new year resolutions work for a lot of people, which is great really. This year, I still don't have any and I kinda like it that way. No pressure. :-)

For many years during my teens I kept a diary. Of course during those days, the pages of my diary were filled with the usual teenage musings and angst which included but were not limited to boys and love. Every day and every night I wrote on my diary, with devotion. Long story short: Someone read my diary and told someone about what was in it! I will spare you the humiliating details of what transpired after that, but from that day forward I quit writing. Yes, it was quite traumatic.

So anyhoo, starting this blog is not really a new years resolution. Just something I have been wanting to do but have put off for one reason or another. Still, I don't know how long I will keep at it. Is it something I really want to do? Do I even have anything to contribute to the world via my words? Do I even want the world to read my ramblings? Who knows.... Look at that! Excuses already! :-)
