Getting Off The Ground
It seems like I've been trying to start a blog forever, waiting for takeoff. I started with ThoughtJamVillage, which never got off the ground. I neglected it totally despite good intentions, but this past year and a half has been just too busy and stressful, and my time too fragmented to be able to get it up and running. Family comes first and we've been through a lot....we're still going through a lot. I'm back now, however, and determined to establish a blog where I can regurgitate all the "stuff" I'm working through and all the new "stuff" I'm learning. RUMBLESTRIP came from a wonderful article by Martha Beck in a recent issue of "O" magazine. I like the magazine but I have to say I buy it primarily because I love Martha Beck. She has a way of getting down to the nitty gritty that speaks to me in a BIG way. Her advice is always dead on and I feel like she's written almost every article specifically for me. That makes her special in my book. We all hit the rumblestrip occasionally in life - some of us a lot more than others, and my life has been one continuous rumblestrip now for about six to ten years. I won't go into it, but I'm sure bits and pieces will come up here and there as time goes on. So Rumblestrip it is.
So here I go...off on a blogging journey which will take me....who knows where....? Please feel free to comment and share your rumblestrips and/or wild adventures if you should drop by.
