This is kind of scary, starting a blog. It’s like taking a big trip, you can think up all the details and plan it out in advance but once you are underway you never know what’s really what’s going to happen. Once you are underway elements are out of your control and you have to just go with it and try and keep the experience pleasant even though there may be some rocky moments. It can be scary actually stepping onto the road and into the wide world but it is usually very rewarding and allows one to grow in unexpected ways. A good traveler plans for the contingencies, plans the route, and gets anxious while packing and just prior to leaving, and then when they leave they let it all go, if it works to follow the plans that’s great, if it doesn’t then there is no need to worry about it because worrying certainly won’t help and if there is a detour or change in plans it might get in the way of enjoying the unexpected. So here I go, traveling into the blogosphere instead of just reading about it from the comfort of my own chair. It’s how many of my journeys begin, the reading and exploring of the ways others experience it, the dreaming about what I’d want to see if I went, and then taking the plunge and going and coming back with my own set of stories. Wish me luck!
