A New Year, a New Direction

Hi. How are you? It’s been a while, I know, but life has been hectic. Here’s the nutshell:

  1. We (me and the Beloved) became grandparents. That was pretty cool! More to the point, the young lass is a cherub. There’s no doubt about it.
  2. I’ve been away from cyberland a bit and visiting family, friends and doing life without my fingers locked to a keyboard.
  3. I’ve taken some time to think about what I want to blog about this year and it’s taken a while to sort it all out in the brain box.

So many other things have happened too like that thing called Christmas, and all, but we all know the drill on that one so I won’t go on.

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you’ll know that I tend to flit from topic to topic and this is something that reflects my personality and creative style.

But I feel dissatisfied with this approach and so this year I’m going to pop on my big girl pants and attempt to write those things called articles, you know, a blog post that has a bit more depth and relevance to its audience; the kind of thing writers used to be known for before blogging became the new best way to communicate.

Don’t get me wrong, blogging is great fun. But there’s something deeply (and maybe even more) satisfying about writing something that requires references and makes the heart beat faster when it’s time to press publish cause you know that you’re probably going to ruffle a few feathers… yeah, that kind of writing.

I hope that with this more grown up direction you will find yourself coming back over and over to read my thoughts about the world, society, relationship, mental health, and reconciliation.

I am pretty sure that you won’t agree with everything I end up saying but that makes me happy. I don’t want to tickle your ears.

I want them to be covered in hairs that stand on end as you become connected with what I write about and moved, in whichever way, to do something. Anything. But moved, all the same.

Here’s to a year of intentional thinking, heartfelt and relevant writing and deeper levels of communication.

Yours,

Miriam E. Miles
