This is not my first blog. I had another, but I deleted it. It was pointed out to me that it was full of anger and bitterness. There is enough of that in the world already without my adding to it. I still want to share what I think and how I feel, I just want to make sure that they are things worthy of being shared. To that end I started a new blog. One in which I can write poetry and tell stories, or even write messages of hope. Or perhaps I'll just talk about the first time I had Hot-buttered Rum. This is not just a new blog. It's my new beginning.
