For anybody not counting, this is my third ever blog post and the time has come where I feel the urge to confess - but not just yet...
What I can tell you is that I created this blog as part of a search of beauty in my day, for poetry in a life that feels like it is lacking that just now. I hoped that by looking for it I might find it. And I'm playing "finders keepers".
Of course you know there are two types of people - cat lovers and dog lovers -no, sorry! Extroverts and Introverts. (I'm allergic to cats, but whenever I shy away from one someone says to me: "So don't you like cats, then?" I do like them, but they make me sneeze. I don't know why people assume antipathy).
So, extroverts and introverts. This is less about timidity and more about where your energy comes from. If you are invigoured by a night out (or three) with friends and strangers you are an extrovert. If you renew your batteries with a quiet night in, a bath and a good book, you are an introvert.
I am an introvert (no, that's not the confession). Maybe this is why I'm writing a blog and not having friends round for dinner. And maybe this is why my photo is currently of a tamarin monkey and not of me.
But even introverts don't always want to be alone. Even introverts sometimes find beauty in connecting with other people (for example see last week's post). So today I have a request (oh and yes, a confession).
First the request: if you read this could you please leave a comment just to say hi. So I know there's someone out there.
Now (yes, now!) the confession: this is only my third blog post (did I mention that already?) and I don't have a clue what I'm doing! But I'm finding my way round a blog or two and I'm trying to learn. Don't understand etiquette on linking or such like yet. Any tips most welcome.
So do drop in and say hi, and I may or may not figure out how to respond, but know if you do you will have made my day! So I'll say thanks in advance.
P.S. I know that was a rubbish confession. If you have any better ones you could include them too!
