I’ve been in this peaceful corner of the internet for nine months now.
I wanted a place to write, to explore ideas, to experiment, to see what this blogging thing was all about. To share, maybe, if anyone found my blog.
I started out thinking I’d write about creativity, and how to fit it into a busy life, about nature, and the importance of connecting with the natural world.
I ended up writing poetry. Poems about everyday life; the first snowdrops of spring, anxiety before a hospital appointment, the first canoe trip of the year, tai chi.
I luxuriated in language. I wrote about things that I don’t usually talk about, feeling safely anonymous among millions of bloggers.
I haven’t been trying to promote my blog, but somehow I now have some followers.
♥ Thank you! ♥
I follow some of the people who have commented or followed my blog and now every weekend my inbox contains poetry and stories. Some of my favourites so far:
The Cedar Journal – adventures of a Cedar Canoe
Elle Guyence, who writes a beautiful poem every week
So, I’m going to keep on writing, exploring, experimenting and reading and see what the next nine months bring for Life In The Fresh Air!
