I am paying $8.95 a month to keep this blog up and running. I've thought about canceling my account, I'm really not even sure there is anyone reading these posts. I've not been in the cornfields of Ohio for a very long time. This blog was a reflection of who I was once upon a time.
I've changed in more than a few ways. But deep inside, the parts that really count are still there. I have the same values I was raised with. I still love my charity work, I enjoy knitting, I've just added a few new hobbies to the list. Instead of charitable works at a distance, I have found things around the Dallas area that I enjoy like making sandwiches for the Dallas Soupmobile twice a month. I love venturing into downtown Dallas. Funny, once upon a time I was nervous about driving in downtown Dayton, and now look at me.
I think I will continue to pay the $8.95 a month. There's a lot of history here, blog posts dating back to 2006. This is the archives of at least a part of my life. I think I need to preserve those ramblings from my brain, and ramblings from my heart for a little while longer. Maybe one day I will go back and read the posts, just not yet. I have a feeling that there are some painful memories in there between the lines. I choose to look forward and look toward the path that is before me now. I can't go back and change the past, nor would I want to. All of those pieces are what makes up the puzzle of my life, and I wouldn't go back and change any part of it.
I'm alive and kickin' in Texas, happy and loving life.
