Welcome back. I say that to both you, dear reader, and to myself.
It’s been a hundred emotional years and a couple lifetimes since we last met. I was looking at my last post and thinking of everything that has happened since then. The timing of that last post was incredibly the end of one season. I just didn’t know it yet.
I was a frog in a pot on the stove, happily flopping around. Someone had just turned on the heat, but I didn’t even notice.
And I wouldn’t for a while. Until, you know, I boiled alive.
Ew. Gross. What a terrible metaphor, especially from a vegetarian.
I’d delete it if it weren’t so accurate.
As I return to my keyboard, to this intimate and yet distant relationship I have with you, my readers, I want to make you a promise: No more platitudes. No more generic, unsolicited advice. No more people-pleasing or qualifying myself.
I want to bring you stories and inspiration every week. I hope to make you laugh. I hope to make you think. I hope to pique your interest in joining me on my ventures off this site and elsewhere on the internet (and maybe even in real life!).
Mostly I hope that this adds value to your life and mine.
For me, I need to create. Writing and creativity help me express myself, figure myself out, and synthesize any number of ongoing activities and input that are happening in my life. It’s part of my DNA. And I love when my words resonate with other people.
I’ll share as much of myself as I can, being as specific and as entertaining as is possible any given moment. I’ll also be brief. If you want to join me for other places where I get more thoughts out, I’ll provide those. But that won’t be here.
This is brain snacks. These posts are meant to be read quickly and digested easily. And they’re meant to be delicious.
So thanks for sticking with me. Thanks for reading. And thanks, especially, for subscribing to this blog or my newsletter.
Let’s get back after it, friends. I’m ready.
