Venturing Out Into the Wilderness

Puffy Clouds To Start Off

 I write to express and explain how I feel.  When I write about sensitive or personal subjects I am experimenting, examining and exploring.

At the beginning of my journey, I have a definite opinion of where I am going and what my destination will be.
But, while meandering through my thoughts and ideas, I find that instead of taking the same old route,  the twists and turns of uncharted pathways are more enticing.  That usually means that even though I may get lost in the wilderness, much to my surprise, I end up in a much better place.

My past couple of posts have been on the heavy and serious side.  Writing about these issues helps to quiet the churning of constant mind chatter which can easily become all consuming.
I feel that if I tell my stories, there may be another who has experienced some of the same things as me.

I write to reach out, to connect.


  1. And, from where I sit, that is exactly what you do. You reach out, you tell your story, and you connect. In that connection, you maybe feel less alone. I know, as the reader, I feel less alone because of your shared experience. Thank you for that, Lynda.
    I have noticed that you and I both seem to drift from light to heavy topics. I like that, both in reading your pieces and in writing my own pieces.

    1. Thank you JT. And if I haven’t said it lately, I do appreciate your support.
      I need a break from the dark stuff now and again. I am mired down with it on a daily basis lately. It is nice to lift the load off my shoulders. It reminds me that there is light, and most times it’s right in front of me.

  2. "I write to reach out, to connect."

    That's the whole point, isn't it?

    1. Yes that is one of the reasons I write. Another is to record some of the days of my life.

  3. Amen. Especially this line: "Writing about these issues helps to quiet the churning of constant mind chatter which can easily become all consuming."
