Where do we start

Where do we start this journey? We are leaving behind so much of what we have been taught, what we have believed. We travel down new roads fraught with perceived danger. It is not so much danger, but fear. Fear of rejection, fear of ridicule, fear of the unknown that compresses us to the point where we can't breath.

Frank Herbert writes this beautifully in Dune
"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

To read and believe what Herbert was trying to say is easy, but to practice this is so much more diffucult. Change is hard. Fear of the unknown is powerfull. Beyond that unknown lies new and wonderful places and things.

I am alive. The knot in the pit of my stomach tells me I am alive. I can almost reach out and grasp what there is to offer.

Hi, welcome to blog!

Are you aware there is a new group created for bloggers and their readership to meet and frolic in the chat room? (A place for serious discussion as well)

A group where interesting blog posts will be “spot-lighted” along with the links of how to get there. A place where new kids on the block can actually get seen as well as the predominant “hierarchy”.

A place where ideas can flow--from suggested blog topics, to writing "critiques", to directions on how to better use the elements of color, photos, and font style/size to make your blog more eye appealing; as well as instructions on how to better use linking to other posts.

Being that this is an adult site, we will also have a group post running where writers and their followers can indicate where they're from so maybe you might actually be able to meet some folk "local" to you.

Flirtatious banter is encouraged--crude obscene assaults will not be tolerated and are subject to deletion.

So...Stop in and have a little fun over your cup o' joe!

Here is a link to the group Blog Cafe, look forward to meeting you there!
