SOL 3-29-2020

I created this blog in 2011 and posted entries fairly regularly; my first monthly challenge with Two Writing Teachers was March of 2012. Then a few years ago I created some other blogs for anonymity and just to collect thoughts.  But this blog is my baby, my favorite one to post on.

I wasn’t sure I was going to be a part of the March Slice of Life this year; I hadn’t been writing on any of my blogs for over a year and wasn’t sure how committed I felt to writing on a daily basis.  I’ve been writing in a journal, but not using my blogs for writing for a long time.

Of course the COVID crisis has created a new filter on everything in my life, daily writing included. It is not that I feel compelled to “record” at this time; I’ve never felt the need to be a memoir writer.  But I  feel called to put words on paper the way other feel compelled to cook.  They go to the pantry and select ingredients for a savory meal, and I sit with a keyboard and select thoughts to string together.

I think I’m ready to engage with my blog again.  I’ll still keep up my written journal – something I wasn’t doing when I started blogging.  But I do love this medium for putting my thoughts, photos, and art together.

    This is such good news! Your words have heart, and power, and they have always spoken loudly and deeply to me. I’ll be listening!

    Happy to “hear” your voice! (I haven’t published on my blog in awhile, either… though I’ve many creations in various levels of completion stored on my computer!)

    I think future generations will welcome our personal record of what life was like for us who lived it. Just as I devour the letters my family wrote during WWII. We are living in interesting times. Keep writing down the story! I’m enjoying your SOL, my friend. Stay safe. Gretchen
