Those of you taking the time to read these entries as they ebb and flow from my brain, I truly appreciate you and your interest in my thoughts. I think that sharing through text allows a certain kind of tangibility, which  seems to carry a bit more intimacy and depth. It allows room for imagination and helps to organically build a vision of how others perceive who I am. Also, I want to give those who are following along this journey something permanent to reference in order to live 'life as it is.'
