Autumn, the new season has arrived -- for me, that means the thrill of new beginnings. Which is why I've been thinking about how I'd like to update and enhance my blog. I started three years ago by just 'jumping' into this cyberspace world of wonders. And like any skill, the more we learn and develop in it, we like taking on new projects to challenge us.
Over the past few months I've been pondering, dreaming and envisioning a look, format and theme that helps me to be more focused, yet allows me to develop in other writing areas of my heart. All still related to living a beautiful life -- because in essence that is the theme of my life.
In that light, I'd like to introduce one new segment on my blog I've chosen to call 'Postcards and Snippets'.
It's the place to share thoughts that are snippets -- a bit, a scrap, a morsel -- of thought and feeling, maybe a tiny jewel, yet unpolished.
But if I wait -- which I have done so often in the past -- the idea, which sometimes is as fleeting as a soap bubble, will vanish if I try to fashion it into something more substantial.
Besides sometimes we don't need -- or even desire -- it to be full-fledged. Our hearts know how to catch 'nuances' even if the thought isn't said perfectly!
For me, so often it's a passing remark in a book or conversation -- very often the proverbial rabbit trail -- that turns out to be a tiny jewel in uncut state that, upon catching its glint, changes my day or week into something beautiful and winsome.
So watch for these.... they may be posted often or not.... after all one never knows when such a snippet will show up!
Wishing you the joy of dreaming new things!
