“If all the world hated you, and believed you wicked, while your own conscience approved you, and absolved you from guilt, you would not be without friends.”
– Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre

Talking is not my cup of tea. I drink beer to help me to be more social. To loosen my intense ego from my reflective brain. Beer is a good way to loosen up and talk.

I was told recently that beer, and the process of making beer, contains an evil spirit… I almost broke out with a laughter that would have showed how possessed I was…

I talk best by writing. Good writing contains threads and archetypes that echo real-life. I love reading autobiographies and embellished non-fiction stories. Mythologies and fairy tales reach to the heart of a great mystery. This is why I started this blog. To work on writing and to tell my story. To not listen to the bullies in my head that come my way saying:

“You are not good enough to write”

I do it anyway.

“You are lousy at spelling”

I do it anyway.

“Your grammar sucks.”

I do it anyway.

“You will be laughed at and people will hate what you say.”

I do it anyway.

Writing a book or a blog just for ego acknowledgement is not my motive here. I want to inspire. I am inspired by others and by life. I want to remember and reach deep down and pull out something that matters… that is real. I am happiest when I am writing. It would be a good thing to be able to make some money doing it. Some are quick to write and come out with a book, I am very slow about it.  It is the dreaming, writing and being in the process…that inspires me. I have found from past experience that completion sometimes is not always as joyous or good as the process.  Being lost in writing a story, creating a piece of art, or creating something in general is my cup of tea!!
