What is a blog?
September 22, 2005
OK...here I go...into the world of blog. Blogs? Blogging?
As is typical of me, I have too many things on the go.
This will be a mini blog...or more interestingly put, a 'quickie'.
Did I not make sense?
Well then, welcome to my blog.
Um...I'll continue later.
September 23 See? I told you'd I 'd continue.
I guess an introduction is overdue. Hi! I'm Lisa.
A forty-something woman who has changed careers a number of times (dental assisting, massage therapy, occupational therapy) and has more interests than she can keep up with (painting, writing, gardening,...OK, this list could go on)
My time is split between the city (Toronto) and the cottage (Muskoka-Georgian Bay). I tell people I live at the cottage, and I just reside in the city during the week while I work. My heart sits in a chair on the smooth granite of Georgian Bay watching the sun go down.
Right now, I'm trying to finish a novel I've been working on for a few years. It's a hobby. It's a stab at yet another (possible) career. It's a personal growth challenge to overcome my fear of success.
I don't spend much money on things that are for the sake of appearances. I don't even hesitate spending money on my health and well-being. I never look at the price of food (unless my mother's programming moves my eyes over to a 'sale' sign). Food is essential for survival. Good food is important for health. Divine food is the cornerstone for bringing people together and teaching us to live in the moment.
After all, the moment is all that matters. Who knows what the future brings (and worrying about it won't help). The past brought us to where we are, but it's expired. We can't change it, and it's useless to try. This moment, on the other hand, is vibrant and charged. It's as powerful as you want it to be. Seize it.
...to which I might add: Lisa is tangential.
Have a great day.
