The Search is On!

I am an avid reader. I enjoy every aspect of reading and especially enjoy the way what I read affects what and how I write. I pride myself on viewing the world through a writer’s eye—not that I am an accomplished writer, but I have this egocentric need for validation in this area. This fact was significant in my decision to begin to blog.

Though I enjoy the process of writing, I have come to the realization this practice of blogging has NOTHING to do with good writing and everything to do with searching for some meaning to what has happened in my life. With every stroke of the keyboard I find a new piece to the puzzle.

Words appear to have a universal connection. You see, pain is not exclusive to young widows. Working through life’s heartache is not limited to those who have lost a spouse.

So as I search for meaning through writing this blog, I drag the lot of you around with me. We climb to the heights of enlightenment and plunge to the depths of despair – collectively. I may not even know you, but we share the same journey to find meaning to the life we lead.

This I know for sure.

Thank you for commenting on my blog. I have been reading yours as well. I would be honored if you add a link to my page.

BTW... is there a reason you don't let people subscribe to your blog? I find, for me, that is the easiest way to keep up with a blog I really like.

Thanks so much. I have added your link. There is a very good reason I don't let people subscribe to my blog---I can't find where it is to enable it???? Can you help me with that?

Go to Settings, Site Feed, set Allow Blog Feed and then save.

I look forward to reading you in the mornings with my first cup of coffee. I think you are an excellent writer.
