Daily Prompt: Origin Story
Why did you start your blog? Is that still why you blog, or has your site gone in a different direction than you’d planned?
I started blogging here for a few reasons.
- Writing is sensuous. I’ve always had a love affair with words. As I write, I roll the words lusciously across my mind the some roll a velvety red wine over the pallet. Meaningful writing is as deeply necessary to my soul as deeply passionate sex.
- I have been through much struggle and have gained a good many golden bits of wisdom and pithy little stories that warm the heart. Many of them beg to be shared with a larger audience.
- Writing offers me the ability to share my experiences with great transparency without over sharing the private lives of my loved ones. When I share, I share it all, the sensual, the ugly, the glorious, the embarrassing, the harrowing. This can be rather unappreciated by DaddyBee (and a few others) when shared with those who know us personally.
- My life is about to under go a radical transformation. Over the next year my family plans to take a journey to better health, spiritually, mentally, emotionally, financially, even (maybe especially?) sexually. There will be much to learn and much to share.
I guess, already it could be said that this is going in a slightly different direction than I originally intentioned (just yesterday!) because I have decided to follow the prompts to help me to get back into the swing of writing. In it’s core, though, I fully expect that this blog to follow the core intention, which is to follow my transcendental journey. It will also help me immeasurably to have the accountability of a daily post, so that I keep taking one more step forward.
