Three Beautiful Things

Writing. Whether I'm a good writer or simply mediocre, writing is my escape. Writing helps me make sense of the world and fine tune my perspective. Writing allows me to express myself more honestly and fully than any other form of expression. Through my words I can take a blank page and create a world that never existed. Through my words I can illustrate feelings too intense to articulate. Writing is my salvation.

My Ipod. Before buying the Ipod, each minute of running felt tortured. Now, I can listen to the Killers albums, pumped up and running, sweat dripping down my chin, and barely realize thirty minutes passed. I love running to the rhythm, lost in song, my body doing the work, but my mind in another place entirely.

My Husband. The ocean may swirl like a tempest around me, but as long as he is my lighthouse, I know I will find safe harbor. [Alhamdullilah]

Hi there, I've missed reading you...hope all is VERY well.

Writing, I agree is a great way of expressing yourself but, I am sorta partial to words spoken. Honest, easy but never meant to hurt. It just comes natural to me. :)

Ipod, I can run to the ends of the earth with those little buds jammed in my ears, LOL!!

Husband, after 20 years and two kids...I'm still pretty sure he's the one for me. We are a beautiful balance. Me....fun and free wheelin', Him....a little on the worried side and grounded.

Your Nashville Friend!
