Home is where you lay your head and hang your hat. Having a roof over your head gives you a place to be yourself. I could also say it’s where your tribe is whether it be by blood or by friendship. Your home is also a place that changes as you age. Some folks need a home where you feel secure and safe. Home is something everyone needs.
Today I spent some time unpacking some stuff from the luggage of my heart and soul. I don’t know why I haven’t done this sooner. Journaling independent of one’s blog is a good way to get your thoughts out of your head and onto paper or pixels. Your experiences shape who you are and if they can help someone else then its a good thing. Now not everything has to or should be shared, everyone is entitled to keeping things close to home. You owe it to yourself to unpack things to get it off your shoulders.
Perhaps I need to do more exploring things rattling around in my head using a word processor vs. WordPress. A private stream of consciousness can help you organize your thoughts and to make sense of things that trouble your soul. Many of you do this already so this is old hat, for me this is a new thing I hope to do more of because I find writing stuff out can help me make more sense of it all.
When you talk about great writers you have to put Snoopy into the mix. His stories of action and adventure are well chronicled on the comic strip as well as TV specials. His stories of tangling with The Red Baron in World War I are that of legend. It’s cool when you see him up on his dog house with his blue manual typewriter clicking away at some important work. I feel he would make an awesome blogger too. Snoopy has a lot to write about and perhaps we can take a page from his book.
