Lately, I’ve been putting a lot of thought into what I want to do with it going forward—and what you want from it. I wrote lists. I even drew a grid. Despite my marketing expertise, I’m kind of embarrassed to admit this, but … it didn’t help.
As you’ve probably discerned by now, I’m all over the place. I’m not a one-dimensional entity. Neither was Sue. Neither are you. Marketing has led me to believe that’s a problem, but I’m having a problem seeing it as a problem. Is that a problem?
All of us nurture, create, befriend, explore, play, achieve, inspire, remember, share, defy, and follow our bliss, in no particular order. This blog honors all those pursuits (and more) that I shared with Sue … and presumably share with you. It’s a devotion born of grief, awakened by the question that has haunted me in the wake of that grief:
What do I want to do with my life?
For me, that the answer is, has been, and (I’m guessing) always will be: to write. So that’s what I’ll continue to do.
We are not a brand and a market, you and I. We are two people waving flags at one another across the information superhighway. But it’s a two-way street—or at least, I’d really like it to be.
You, whoever you are, are reading this for a reason. I’d like to know what that reason is. Maybe someday you’ll tell me. In the meantime, I hope my passion and honesty keep you coming back while you (and I) figure it out.
If there’s anything you’d like me to write more about, tell me. If there’s anything you’d like to share, share it. What do you want to do with your life? Is there anything I can do to help you achieve that?
I look forward to another year of sharing My Castle Heart with you, in honor of life and in honor of Sue.
