>”One day you finally knew what you had to do, and began” – Mary Oliver
I think I’ve been waiting for that day to arrive, the magical one where I’d know exactly what this space is supposed to be (mommy blog? gardening blog? food blog? introspective space? creative writing?) and so I’ve been hesitant to make it anything. And now, with all due respect to Mary Oliver, I am thumbing my nose at that day. Thpppppptht. Come, don’t come. Whatever. I’m just gonna start posting whatever. We’ll see what emerges.
I don’t know why anyone reads this, anyway – why they come here, what they’re hoping to see, to read, to hear. So who am I trying to please? the mysterious writing gods who are telling me I’m not doing it right? Oh, wait – those aren’t writing gods – they’re my stinking inner critics. Well, we’re going out for coffee together and talk this out. Because if I don’t know what I’m doing, then there’s no way to do it right… or wrong.
So here I am, just doing it.
