52 in 2016...

My internal dialog is my constant companion. Constant I tell you.

Very little of that dialog ever escapes my thoughts through spoken word. I often think about sharing some of that dialog here on the blog, but looking back at 2015's posts only 2 discussions ever made it to your digital screen. Four other posts were started, but never finished. A posts about giving less fucks. (Ironically written almost exactly a year ago.) A post about celebrating 20 years of marital union. (Written in the sunny days of summer) A post about my struggles with depression. (Written at the start of fall when I struggle the most keeping my emotions on somewhat of an even keel.) A post about my dear great grandma Mary. (Written just after her passing.)

As I've mentioned before, I'm not a resolution maker. But I've been thinking a lot about just what this little spot's purpose is living out on the world wide web. I have often thought of simply taking this blog down, but each time I do that I start to look back at all the bright moments of life (and darker inner thoughts) I've shared here over the years. It's helped me log my knitting journey. It's seen the growth and fading of my yoga business. It's how we shared with loved ones near the ups and downs of parenting, kids and pets. It's been a place for me to share my love of the visual world around me.

This spot may not mean much to others, but when it comes down to it, I realize it means a great deal to me. The process means something to me. The memories recorded here are important to me. So it's time for me to sit back down in my writing chair on a more regular basis. I've said that before, and just SAYING it has never seemed to turn into me actually DOING more writing. So it's time to set a goal. A goal that is specific, measurable, and attainable.

In 2016 I will write 52 posts, 1 per week, to record our lives, our joys, our sorrows, and my inner dialog for whom ever cares to read and for the good that comes from the process of documenting life.

The goal has been set.

The goal has been shared.

Thank you to those who choose to read along on my 2016 journey.
