Let's Get Started, Take 2

That's right... can you believe it? I didn't like my first attempt at saying "hi", so I'm trying again.


And now, for your enjoyment, a conversation in my head between my "TherapistMe" and, for lack of a better name, "Me":

TherapistMe: Have you written the first post?

Me: No. Not sure what I want to say.

TM: Just write it. You know, say "hi", and then you're off to the races.

Me: It's not that easy.

TM: Sure it is.

Me: It needs to be good. I don't want people to think I'm stupid.

TM: ???

Me: Well, OK, maybe not stupid, but... you know.

TM: ???

Me: Well, yeah, right now no one even knows this thing exists. Well, Roland knows.

Me: Oh, and you know, blogs need some kind of picture or they're boring. Readers like pictures.

TM: Well, put in a picture.

Me: Well, I did do a search for images of "anxiety" in google images.

TM: Did you find one?

Me: Kind of, but I think it might be illegal to just use a random picture.

TM: Everyone else does it. Just credit the source.

Me: Yeah, that makes me nervous. I don't want to get in trouble.

TM: ??? How old are you?

Me: Um, 52.

Me: Never mind. I'll just draw my own.

Oops, just used a pencil. Well, no need to be perfect. Really. Gotta just let it go...

xoxo, Ellen


  1. I would read anything you write (or draw)

  2. I think this is going to be fun!

  3. Looking forward to see how this progresses. Family dynamics and empty nest, jobs, marriage - they all make for a very interesting person. I'm happy to be your friend - I've been reading and occassionally commenting on your sewing. g

  4. Welcome to blogging! I look forward to reading more of your posts. I found you via Visible Monday. Robyn
