Today a new journey begins. A journey of fewer words but of new dreams.
I originally called this daily work of my ‘ten minas’ after the parable of the ‘ten talents; in the bible. My goal was simple. I set out to prove that I am a indeed a writer by writing. After over two years of writing I believe I have proven to myself and finally believe that I am what I wanted to be. But my heart is being called in a new direction. My heart is being called toward fiction and so this journey is coming to an end, but a new path is emerging. A path which I must follow.
I called this a blog and I strove to write at least five hundred words because calling something a blog seems fashionable but I am not really sure it really was a blog. Looking back I think it was a journal and I received the most compliments on my stories, when I wrote about what was happening to me, or told stories from my past.
I am not sure what this is merging into but I believe that it is morphing into a journal. Starting soon, maybe even tomorrow I will begin to write more how I see the world and what is happening to my life. The entries will be shorter, sometimes longer, in an effort to begin and unpack the many stories that live deep inside my mind.
This is the end of the blog. The beginning of a journal.
Thank you kindly for stopping by and spending time here.
I’m off on a new adventure. Of to harvest new dreams. I hope you come along too, because it’s not really an end but a new beginning.
