Well actually Happy Birthday to ‘My thoughts on a page’, which has over the past two years become very much a part of me. I have laughed and cried out loud here and enormously enjoyed every post I’ve written.
Like New Year a birthday is a time to reflect, to look forward and back. When I look back I do so with tremdous grattitude that my brother introduced me to blogging. From my earliest days I have enjoyed the interactions of those I have met either here or elsewhere on wordpress. Lucky for me quite a number of you have been here for most of the two years. It has been one of the most difficult two years in my life, with Daniels diagnosis and battle taking it’s toll, not to mention the difficult road that is grief.
So many of you have helped me through. I really am hugely grateful.
As I look forward I think there is a change coming. At last I feel I know what I want to do. I want to write, and be published some day. I’ve tried to free up some time in the week to actively write and to give the time I should to the creative writing course assignments I’ve been set.
With that in mind I don’t think I’ll be able to post as much as I have to date, but I will never be too far away. I will try to check in regularly to catch up on what I’ve missed and I would love if I could get up to three posts a week done. I am also thinking of beginning another regular slot where you who read can contribute. I will hopefully have a better idea of what that will be when I clear some headspace and think it through, as I so enjoyed the ‘series of letters’ and ‘second chance repost’.
In time I may even pluck up the courage to post some of my creative writing here too.
So onward and upward. I’m away off to the pool again teaching, but when I return I hope you will be able to join me at about ten thirty Irish time to raise your glasses “To blogging and online friendships”.
Sláinte, even if you can’t join me you can be sure I’m enjoying one,(or two) myself.
