Enter Title Here.

I am out of the habit of writing here and it pains me greatly. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve created a post (in my mind) only to get distracted three minutes later and blink and two weeks have gone by before I’ve thought about writing again.

And then there are the times I actually have sat down and started to write and I can’t figure out how to finagle it. How do you restart something you’ve let die, and do you acknowledge that fact that you have basically given up on it and almost closed it down — is that too melodramatic?

Anyway, all that aside, I was having a conversation with my baby brother last night, he who just moved across the street from me (and through the backyard)! We were chatting, just casually standing there as we said goodnight and at some point he said something about that need to write and get the words out. And I realized that for me, that’s been missing in my life and might have a lot to do with some struggles I have lately. I need to get the words out, regardless or who is reading or even whether or not I have a grand message to share.

A writer writes always. And not because of the need to produce as much as the need to just exhale. Verbally/mentally/emotionally speaking.

So here I am, making a pledge (to myself) for a new ten-minutes a day blogging approach. That’s all. Hopefully more will come in the future, but for now, here I am. I hope this helps.
