Turning around

I feel as though I am in a waltz with God, sometimes. I had spun out, so wide (did he do that, or did I?) and am now curling back towards his embrace again.

It is Lent, and so I am turning back, keeping pace with sombre music, because it is dark out there on the limits called self-reliance. Dark and very cold. I move (am drawn) towards the light.

Yes I trust in you. I do.

And yet, of course I don't. But he is grace and so I hope to see his face again at Easter's dawn.

This blog is doing a turn-around too. I am too lazy to start up a new blog with new themes, or to think of another blog title so I'll just keep this old one going.

It will be my little, quiet corner. Which won't contribute to the clutter in this house the way that notebooks and bits of scribbled-on paper do.

And I'm going to try not to compete with the many so much better writers out there. The ones I love to read because they hold up a mirror to my own soul.

In writing here, as in life, I'm going to try to be appreciative, not jealous. Generous, not self-indulgent. And at peace with my own ah...distinct lack of brilliance.

I hope to start afresh. And I hope to make some sense, to someone.

Don't we all?
