something about nothing... or is it?

I have noticed that often when I post it is because there is something wrong, difficult, noteworthy or important going on in my life. I don't really seem to post about nothing, or rather, the absense of anything notable. So I am making a post about how nothing is exicting, or terrible or paticularly wonderful, my life as it sits today is quite acceptable. I am enjoying the simplicity of my life these days. Jarrett and I have a wonderful existance, and though things are not roses all the time, I am enjoying what we have together.

On a side note, perhaps this is noteworthy, I am going to start posting my writing in this journal. I greatly enjoy posting and reading other people's thoughts, but I don't always have something to say, so I have decided this is a good way for me to express my work. You see, I write letters... I love writing letters to people who never recieve them. When I was in my teens I used to write letters to Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen or Jane Eyre from book of the same name by Charlotte Bronte. I wouuld write to them as their close friends. Now I write letters to people who have been in my life, or people who are in my life, also to fictional characters and historical figures. I do it in a somewhat poetic way, I try to make them sound classic and thoughtful. Anyway, I figured this would be a good way to express myself, so look forward to them if you are interested.


I am happy that you are happy. The non-eventful wonderful-ness of life often gets forgotten (I suppose it's a manifestation of "if it isn't broken, don't fix it!" in a way...), and I'm glad you posted about it. It inspired me to pay attention and be happy about life, too. :-)

I am excited to read your writing! It sounds interesting.
I used to write letters to people, too... especially dead people or fictional people. L. M. Montgomery wrote somewhere about not writing anything one would be embarrassed to have read aloud after you're dead, but I flouted that rule at every turn, I'm afraid. And so what? It's fun... have fun, Liz. I'm looking forward to reading your letters. :)
have you ever written to me?

I look forward to reading!
There is a philosophical point made by Dan Millman in "Way of the Peaceful Warrior" - "There are no ordinary moments."

It does not help me write more but i do try to meet life on those terms.
