A Beginning to start. Fresh slate. The other side of the pillow.

I had a blog once, actually twice. As has happened in the past life caught up to me and things became to busy for me to record what was going on. What was going on was important. A large step in my life that I would like to record. I miss having a blog, and so I start again. The past … 7 or 8 months have been a whirlwind of crazy since having that last blog and I’d like to start with a little something out of the mouth and mind of Mark Twain.
“Life is short, Break the Rules. Forgive quickly, Kiss SLOWLY. Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably. And never regret ANYTHING that makes you smile.”
It isn’t a direct quote but a compilation of great guidelines to follow. Though values in what I have and will experience may contradict others, and may be embarrassing to myself, I have to share somewhere, and I like it right here. I’m learning to live without regrets, speak honestly, Laugh at my stupidity and embarrassment, and above all Love truly.
