I cannot begin to explain what it is like to hold in my hands 5 years of my writing and pictures. I have no delusions that I am a great or even good writer or photographer...I read so many people who write exactly what I want to say and write it much better than I ever could. I look at blogs that have the most amazing photographs, photographs that need no words. BUT, this is me...this is my life, my thoughts...I write the way I speak, rambling and at times nonsensical, and I'm OK with that. I'm more than OK with that...I am thrilled beyond belief to be holding this book in my hands, it makes me smile and cry all at the same time. It brings me back to moments in time that would be lost without this blog and without my writing. I can hold the last five years in my hands...it is amazing!
