By now you know I think a lot, write a lot and you can probably imagine I am also capable of talking a lot. I have to or my head would explode. There is so much in it that I have to let it out, release the pressure, and by writing or talking I am making it easier for myself. So writing this blog helps quite a bit and more than I had even anticipated. The fact that so many people show up regularly to read it absolutely astounds me. Those of you who take the time to comment and connect have enriched my life in a way I had not expected but am so grateful for. I realise the effort it takes and am honoured to be worth your effort. To those of you who read and lurk silently, welcome to my head. I used to do a lot of that too and still sometimes do.
I have contemplated slowing down, writing less, maybe aiming for just a few times a week, but I am not sure if I can. When I first began I thought that I might not post much. I wasn't sure if I had anything to say publicly, which I am now rather amused by, and I knew I would frequently be very tired and in bed. None of those things seem to have stopped me. In fact, I am finding that writing is helpful even when I am tired. You might be thinking that's all well and good Miss Verbosity, but you don't have to publish everything you write. Let me assure you that I don't! Yes, I am that prolific.
My next thought was that I should try to write shorter posts. Well
just look at how long this one is getting! I set myself a three
paragraph limit for this one. I'm nearly there and I hear you
cheering. The only way to get me to stop, to keep me quiet and get rid of me is to give me a garden. I don't have my garden of flowers anymore. Now I walk in a garden of amazing bloggers. I have found my own little patch and am tilling my soil and planting my seeds with great enthusiasm. These are my own feet in my gardening boots. I miss this view, looking down at these boot clad feet. At first I thought I didn't have anything to link up to Bella's Shoe Shine at Citizen Rosebud, but then I realised the footwear in which I always felt the most myself, the most fantastic is these boots. So here we are, at the end of my three paragraphs and I can stop writing now because for me these boots say it all.
