First Post of 2015

Today I smiled at my own reflection in the mirror.

I was alone.

This hasn’t happened in a long time, a very long time. Don’t get me wrong, I smile all the time, everyday. I smile at strangers, I smile at friends, I smile flicking through pictures on my phone. But it’s been a long time since I smiled, really smiled at my reflection in the mirror and meant it.

I don’t even know what it means but it felt good.

I’ve missed writing. I’ve been scared, though. Scared to write because it forces me to face my emotions. But yes, this is me facing my emotions.

How are you?

It’s Lent, one of my favorite seasons. I love Lenten hymns. I love saying the Stations of the Cross. I like the results that come from the typical Lenten observances. Simply trying to reduce my usual indulgences has a profound effect on my peace of mind and my productivity. I wonder why I don’t practice the same ascetism all year round.

I have many things to say, but I don’t know what to say. I just felt like I had to write today, and put this out here. To break this jinx.

Thank you all for your kind wishes on my marriage and my brother’s passing. Your words gave me courage, you are one of the reasons I can smile.

I’m going to try an experiment. I’m going to let you decide what I should write on next.

1. My Life Audit and the “Resolutions” I came up with or,
2. A primer on travelling alone in a strange country or,
3. The Problem with Zeus and Amadioha

Let me know in the comments’ box. πŸ˜€


  1. Welcome Back! Happy New Year’s, Valentine’s, and….oh I don’t think Happy Lent applies πŸ™‚ .
    What to write? Zues and Amadioha, please.

  2. Welcome back to writing. For curiosity sake, The problem with Zeus and Amadioha would be my first choice. But subsequently, please do write about the other options, they too are worth writing and reading about.

  3. Not number 1 because resolutions are so January and it would make you face your feelings. Not number 2, not because you can’t pull it off, but because number 3 is more interesting. Yes number 3 because maybe it should get your creative juices really going without plenty introspection. All the best whatever you decide. πŸ™‚

    I’d go for number 2. I’m interested in seeing travelling alone from your point of view & congratulations on your marriage πŸ™‚

    I’m just glad your are back. I thought about when next I was gonna read a new post from you, a couple of days ago. I simply concluded it might be a while; since your may be honeymooning for a long time… πŸ™‚

    And I think you should write on no. 3. I think it will help getting your writing-mojo back.
