Art of the Craft

IMG_20120528_162334I love to write. In a world of faulty perceptions, words can be chosen and expressed in a way that we cannot convey ourselves with looks alone. Ever since I was a kid, I realized that I had a different way of seeing the world. I was made fun of, pushed around, and labeled. I didn’t fit in. But when I picked up a pencil and put my thoughts to the page, I found a freedom that didn’t exist in the real world for me. When I wrote my stories down, they achieved new life and so did I.

Eventually, I learned to assimilate to a great degree in order to get along and be successful. But I never lost my love of writing. I don’t record my thoughts as often as I’d like, but hopefully this blog will change some of that. I truly enjoy reading the works of others, too, so being part of a blogging community seems to be a great way to achieve both sides of the writing coin. I hope that you enjoy reading my musings as much as I enjoy absorbing a bit of your expression. It truly is an art community, with words as our medium. Thank you for joining me on our soulful journey.

  1. Words are really powerful, it really defines you. You may know someone’s personality by the choice of his or her words. I can tell you’re a resilient person. I know the feeling when you said ” But when I picked up a pencil and put my thoughts to the page, I found a freedom that didn’t exist in the real world for me”.

    I grew up as a shy girl, I only speak when necessary. I don’t like attention and I’m fine being unnoticed. But when I write, all my thoughts flow freely. I create a world where it’s all about me and my random perspective. I write from the heart, it feels good.

    I love the way you write, keep it flowing and I’ll see you around! 🙂
