I’ll make this brief.
When I started writing exactly one year ago, I sought to provide a bit of shine to the world for a few weeks over the holidays by sharing some heartwarming stories that mattered to me. I’d hoped I would create a record of some of my adventures in my Santa Hat. I had wondered what writing would be like and figured it was worth a go for the brief holiday season.
Who would have thought I’d discover a fresh and exciting passion! No, I never anticipated the deep fulfillment and thrilling rollercoaster ride of writing that had previously been offered only by my dancing. I never expected to hear back from readers from all over the world and from right next door. I never dreamed that I would find in writing this blog and her daughter blog, Sirena Tales, an outlet to express creativity and a vehicle to explore what’s enchanting and deeply meaningful to me.
Writing is a new friend that helps me focus my lens on the world, and fine tune how I wish to experience and make my contribution to it.
Funny. I didn’t expect magic, but I got it.
So, if you’re reading this or if you’ve ever read any of my posts, and especially if you’ve ever given me any feedback, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. This writing thing has been transformative and wondrous. I can’t wait to keep at it, as lonely and uncertain as it may feel sometimes. Because it’s enchanting. And I’m grateful.
