As Introductions Go...

It is a grayer day than usual, and I miss writing.  

I do not intend for this to be a blog of large words and introspection over coffee (I don't even like coffee; but I am at starbucks), but the day is gray, and those damned gray days have been known to put many a writer into the "funk of writing."

I do, however, have no idea what I actually intend for this blog to be.  I've been wanting to start a blog for a while now, but I haven't because I feel like I'm too varying.  I could have a blog about crafting.  Or my wonderful relationship with my wonderful girlfriend (and all the problems therein because I am a girl, too).  Or about how I'm trying to become a greener person and eat food without high fructose corn syrup or artificial coloring.  Or a blog about my job (bartending), and my search for what I really want to do in life (teacher; writer; doula; small business owner; orca whale trainer).  Or a blog with my writing in it.

So, I've decided to not simply have one vein to follow in this blog, but many.  I know blogs don't tend to do that, so I've chosen Walt Whitman to back me up.  

Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.)

Take it up with him if you don't like my amalgamated blog.

So, hopefully that explains the title of my blog.  I have a lot of parts, and I'm trying to figure out how to make them all come together.  And I mean, c'mon.  It just sounds really cool.

  1. You know how I feel about Walt Whitman.

    Points for an applicable quote, though.
