Five years ago today, Dreams, Deliriums, and Other Mind Talk went live. How quickly time passes! Yes, it’s been five years, and it’s also been a whirlwind.
During my five years on Dreams, a lot of change and growth has happened for me. I’ve written poetry and short stories to share with those who like to visit and read. People from across the globe have read my work and shared some of their thoughts with me and with other readers. Some of my poetry and short fiction has been published in print and/or online journals. I started the naked light, a blog that features some of my more visceral writings. I left teaching and launched a new career as a counselor / psychotherapist. My first professional peer-reviewed journal article was published. I started doctoral studies to become a counselor educator (I’m now at dissertation!). My husband and I celebrated ten years of joyful marriage. My first chapbook, From Darkness, Beatitudes, was recently published. And, the bountiful list goes on…
One thing has not changed. I’m still blogging. I, the Queen of I don’t like social networking, am still blogging! While my output has been greatly reduced since the early days of Dreams, I still enjoy posting a poem or a reflection every few weeks, and stopping in and visiting with you when time allows.
My deepest gratitude to all of you who have been, and continue to be, co-travelers on my journey. Thank you ever so much for your celebration of my creative spirit. I appreciate you, truly! I also hope you will continue to stop in for a rest—and a read—in my quiet space, whenever you are moved to do so. Dreams, Deliriums, and Other Mind Talk is here to stay!
With love and gratitude,
** NOTE: It’s that time of year for pulling away from all of the usual and routine, and getting in touch with the open, the wild, and the bright. I’ll be back, kissed by the magnificent beauty of life.
