Well.....here I am...dipping my toe into this water...again, and I'm not sure exactly where it's going after that.
So many things have happened since I lived, breathed, wrote, shared and put my heart and soul into this place. This blog, my own little corner of the world, started at one place, and ended somewhere entirely different. I loved every single twisty little turn.
Then social media took over. Let's face it, it really is a fast way to connect with other people and keep up with their daily lives. The problem is, it's not really a connection, as much as it is a fly-by. It's much easier to post a picture with a small caption or quip than it is to have to tap into your creative side and paint the wordy picture of the thoughts and moments you wish to share.
I've also had life changing events happened in the past year which, out of necessity, forced me to push the writer, funny, creative sides of me, to the end of the line. Although I love fun and spontaneity; change, grief and loss are 3 things this Dutchess doesn't do well, and it has been a long, blue season.
However, I think I'm finally seeing a light...a realization that I like to write...I need to write. Writing has always been in my bones...in my soul.
I'm not sure where this is going, but I do know that I am entering the next chapter of life, of this blog, and with a deeper understanding of myself, the ones I love, and the world.
I'm not always going to be funny, but I am going to bring back "We Snapped", which I will explain at a later time. I'm also thinking about bringing "Reflecions From A Bathtub" back once a month too. I think you will still see you're crazy, wild, Dutchess and her stories of her Royal Family, but I hope you also get to see, know and like, the other sides of her too.
Mostly, I just want to write again, ad I sure hope you all come along for the ride, but no pressure, either way m'kay?
Now, I have to go, I'm late for my bubble bath and wine.
