"And suddenly you know: It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of new beginnings".
I have had this domain name and blog space for months now. Today, Labor Day 2015, I finally sit down to create my first post. I have to admit facing the blank page is scaring me to death. I don't consider myself a gifted nor eloquent writer. I am not even sure what my exact intention for this blog will be. I consider myself to be on a creative journey. I love cooking and baking, exercise and health, nature and the changing seasons and in the last 20 months have started an artistic journey consisting of sketching and painting. I started that journey scared to death, too, so unsure of my abilities or even my worthiness to create. Who did I think I was trying to do art at my age? Never mind that all I ever did as a child was create something-music, drawings, crafts, food. So I began as a very tentative beginner. Now I am getting more and more comfortable trying new things and seeing where I get. It has been so much fun! When I am lucky enough to have something turn out well, I surely am filled with wonder and gratitude. Are you a beginner at something, too?
So just to introduce myself, my name is Lynda. I live in Northern Colorado where I live a pretty active life (except for right this moment as I am experiencing an "emerging" stress fracture in my left fibula-no fun!) And talk about wonder and gratitude, try feeling indifferent to life (not to mention quite small) at the summit of a peak that's over 14, 000 feet above sea level. Not possible!
Thank you for stopping by. I'm honored.
