Welcome to my ramblings. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I do writing them. I have so many thoughts running round in my head.. so many memories, both good and bad. One of my favorite lines from a movie came from Shall We Dance with Richard Gere and Susan Sarandon. Susan’s character says ” We need a witness to our lives. There’s a billion people on the planet, what does any one life really mean? But in a marriage, you’re promising to care about everything. The good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things, all of it, all of the time, every day. You’re saying ‘Your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it. Your life will not go unwitnessed because I will be your witness’.”
Now I’m happily divorced so I’ll take the marriage part out, but basically we all need a witness to our lives.. We all want our lives to be seen, to be noticed. I guess that’s part of the reason I’m writing this blog. It will bear witness to my life. And when you read it, you become part of my journey. So thank you for noticing my life. Here’s some of the things you might not know about me or my life and things that inspire me …
