All started this last day of February mere months before my 3rd child was born.
He will be seven in May, and I can’t think of anything more than this blog that helped me navigate the diminished language application of 3 babies 3-and-under.
They were read to and talked to, and held and fed and ignored and loved on.
And I wrote and wrote, untangling my muddled thoughts and enjoying the clear ones.
When I started, this was my “About” page:
That, and, like I heard Lord Byron said:
If I don’t write to empty my mind, I go mad.
On this blog I explore all that pleases me: stories, words, writing, some music, discovering ideas, and how to think about them.
I am someone who has always processed by articulating. This is where my content comes from. Some is substantiated by my own research, but all is substantiated within my experience, and it is on this authority that I write.
“Where did you get your copies?”
“Out of my head.”
“That head I see now on your shoulders?”
“Has it other furniture of the same kind within?
“I should think it may have: I should hope–better.”
Who knew an ordinary life would require so much thought?
Anyway, I couldn’t let this day pass as a complete blank. Seven years seems pretty significant.
