Meadows Musings is really my first attempt to write a blog about what is important to me and the thoughts that aimlessly float around in my mind. I started writing as a child and my passion grew to this point, starting a blog. I have had blogs in the past, they were really bad. My first love and forever love is pen and paper. I look at starting a blog a new step in the same relationship.
My North Woods life.
Writing was natural for me, it was free-flowing, and a great amount of joy. Five years ago writing became hard, and it was becoming a chore and a place of self-pity. What I felt in my heart, came through to my writings. Simply, I just didn’t care, and it showed. Depression took hold of every aspect of my life. It has been an illness I have struggled with all my life. The one thing different was a lost of all creatively. I am slowly finding my writing. I honestly did not think it was going to be so hard to pick it all up and begin again. The last five years I broke down, I lost much. I also learned much. I have fought through, illnesses, deaths, breast cancer, the building bubble bursting and my husband and I having to start almost over.
This is where I begin anew. The love of life, extremes of the love of learning, the love of living in The North Woods of Wisconsin. I look forward to writing about my passions in life. I am a news and history junkie. I love writing about local extremes our weather. We are blessed with, the four seasons and all the outdoor adventuress it brings. I have children of the four paws kind, three German Shepherds.
I am very greatly looking forward to discovering my long lost friends, writing, creating, sharing. Honestly, I am a bit afraid to. Chemotherapy has made simple connections in my brain so hard at times. The many medications add to those processes and slow my brain and thinking down.
Here is to living again. All my defects, the nuts and bolt have loosened but not have been lost.
