A friend and her family visited me on the Cape today. It was a gray and sort of miserable weather day. We made the best of it. At one point during the day, and for a short time, we sat out by the chess board and enjoyed the perennial garden around us.
We talked about writing. We talked about how writing can have a cleansing effect. Sometimes, putting our experiences down in print allows us to be free from them. However, sitting down to write can be a daunting task. This blog has sometimes been daunting but I'm surprised at how far I've come. Writing one post after another has been possible because I've set some good ground rules for myself: I'll share them.
