I'm alive over here, I promise.

I don't quite know why I've been away, except I think it has something to do with spending so much time and energy living my life that I don't have the time and energy to write about it. Right now, there's Baccalaureate to plan and Christmas to make and to celebrate and miles to run and people to love on. Over the last weeks, there have been websites to build (though the photos in the box still need some help), blogs to start and freelance jobs to apply for. I've been overcoming some of the fear of little steps that keeps me from going anywhere and learning to care for myself even when others can't care for me like I want them to.

Overall, it's been a good month, but I miss you all dearly.


On a practical note, please do check out the website and particularly the blog. I'm hoping to chronicle my writing growth and journey over there, even as I chronicle my inner growth and journey here. I don't much love the idea of separating the two, but it seems like the best way to move things right now. FYI, there's not too much written there yet. Let me know what you think of it all.

i look forward to seeing your name in lights one day........then i can be braggadocios and say "hey i know this person." See then everybody can think I am cool cuz i know Sarah.

On a more serious note, it is tough pursuing a dream that seems bigger than life. I think the real key is to not give up and never stop dreaming BIG.

carry on my friend

You were missed. I'm graduating this semester as well. Congrats! I popped into your other blog but will have to return later for a better read. Happy Days!

I think it's good to have a focus in a different place. (Says the woman of many blogs :)

Tammy--Aww, shucks. And thanks for the encouragement...days like today when one of the cars is broken and it's pouring rain and I'm wet before 8AM are days when I need encouragement ;)

Sojourner--Thanks! Just to clarify, I'm not graduating...I run our Baccalaureate ceremony. It's part of my job...lucky me. Happy graduation to you!

LL--hehe...I figured you and Kirsten would hear me there ;)

Kirsten--thanks, friend...it's so good to know you're there, even when words are hard to come by.

Hi, friend. I'm here, too. And so proud of you for taking this big step. The site looks beautiful, just like you. I can't wait to wade deeper into the thoughtful things you've posted there . . . and to watch you emerge as a butterfly with wings.

Hey there. Just a note to say I featured you today at High Calling Blogs. Usually we only feature members, but I expanded the envelope this time since I was doing something fun (Random Acts of Poetry: Dreaming in the Comment Box).
