Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song/and I'll try not to sing out of key

by Amy Turn Sharp


Most of my friends don't blog. I think they like to read my blog, but they kinda raise eyebrows about the particulars of why I am doing it. Some of them think it is odd to post mundane and sorta private things. Some of them prefer me to my doobleh-vay site and want my mouth to tell them things instead of reading about it at lunch. Some of them like to keep up...But when they ask I repeat robotically:
for daily practice
for my writing
Yet, I think it has become more than that really. It is really my place to go. It is what Virginia Woolf talked about; my room of my own. It is where sometimes I just spout off and sometimes I am Shakespeare's sister eloquently turning it all round in my mind. It is much more than I ever thought it would be. A really wonderful part of this blog is how I have forged connections and friendships through these keys. I think I understand now how people can find love on the Internet. I have found through this blog the lesson the world is trying to teach me
We are more alike than we are different
One of these people I have had the pleasure of connecting with is Piper.
She is an amazing mum far away from me, but if not for geographical fate..we would have been very close. Her boys would play with my boys. I don't just entertain fanciful thoughts, I know it would be that way. She tagged me for this meme...Here goes...
