Hello, here am I; new transfer to Shimer, re-awakened writer, and slowly expanding soul: I was asked to begin with a forward to the unknown story by concluding some truth from my ever morphing past, so here it is
Often my writing come in poem, as it is, at times, more musical than prose. Sometimes I write in rhyming prose…. but this irritates me, because even my poetry avoids rhymes. ..Rhymes are like little pickers that get stuck in one’s head.. when I don’t want them, or velcro to help bring the reader in when the rhyme is fresh and nice. But I prefer to work on the timbre of my internal vocals than to hold an already created vocabular structure. To me writing is like a meditation, or a jam session with myself. It’s a creation of consciousness, recorded so that you can follow along and so that I can find it later. Like meditation, writing desires concentration and creativity (though some stiff people forget about the second part) and both skills, like the ability to relax and concentrate at the same time, are necessary for a well balanced, and there for happy, life.
Let me specify my goals for blogging - and these are not goals that I have given a great deal of thought and planning to, just my imagination taking form. I want to write like other bloggers don’t. I want my words to be a poem and a song, a tension-releasing massage of the brain, both for my self and the initially imagined reader… who is now the real you. I imagine that my topics will be of a philosophic nature while I retell the fancy tails of life.. two beats. Some days the writing may be stressed or flowing, hopefully not boring… Specifically I want to express what I think others have not seen, and I hope that you also will enjoy it. Constructively my writing will probably reflect a jumble of daily events, ongoing goals, and ever changing views and thoughts, as they pertain to my learning self. I believe that I have things to say which the majority of people don’t think about and of, and ways to say them that produce a creative practice both for the reader, you, and for myself, me.
I do not pretend to be perfect at grammer, spelling, or formal structure. Please forgive what you are not used to and I will endeavour to construct a new, beautiful, context of mind for both myself and those who wish to join me.
These are my goals for this writing, and this is the end of my first post.
