I enjoy this other part of my life…it is so relaxing to just go with an idea even if I may not be the best painter. I like using my iPad to do digital painting and bringing things to life that are rolling around in my head. Maybe it will inspire a poem in the future.
Writing is like therapy, at least that is how I view it. I am able to get all these things that are swirling around in my brain out and spew them onto a page and feel like my head is cleared for a little bit. Sometimes it takes time to get them out like I want to but there they are.
I started doing writing prompts today; it was fun to have an idea, provided by someone else, to get started. I decided to write it like a scene, my first attempt at writing like that; and I think it is ok for first time attempt. Most of my thoughts are random and poems written on the fly about how I’m feeling in the moment; and this gave me a little more focused way to write.
As I get older I realize that writing is a great way to exercise your brain and really gives me the opportunity to do something I always enjoyed, but never took really serious…that’s not true…lol. I have had other pages before but never seemed really dedicated to the writing process…things have changed; and I look forward to sharing more of my writing in the future here and other places around the World Wide Web.
I wanted to share a little about myself in this first post. I’m a guy that just loves writing down his thoughts and sharing myself with the world. I find writing to be a very therapeutic and helps me deal with the world around me. I am married to a very beautiful woman and have a great step son, both I love with all my heart and would do anything for. I recently retired from one career and and working on my second one…very challenging to change to say the least when you are 49 years old.
My posts will not follow any set pattern and could range from just the mundane thoughts to the deepest poetry I can pull from my inner being.
