Why do I blog?
I honestly believe that my Dad is one of the main reasons I blog...
because I love to write...
and my Dad was a writer...
he enjoyed it - I enjoy it.
I saw a quote from Anais Nin which also sums up writing for me:
We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.
Another reason, but totally related, is that I absolutely love my family...I love to document our lives, to share what's going on since we are so scattered around the state...and the country. I love to share our lives with those people who are our friends.
I hear about people who read this blog ... people I had no idea about. That makes me happy... a friend of mine once apologized for reading it. She said she felt she was intruding... If I didn't want others to read it, I would make it private. You're not intruding...I enjoy blogging, and I love that others enjoy reading it!
My Dad would have been my biggest reader, I'm sure!
