I enjoy writing. I never knew that until later in life. Even then, I think I knew it, but did not realize it. I have been writing since high school, but at that time, there was no encouragement. When I started my blog in 2005, I was always dumbfounded that people would actually read what I wrote. Visitors would read every word I put on my layouts which took me by surprise because I thought they would just look at the artsy on the page. It took me many years to get used to the concept that people were actually interested in what I had to say when in person I always felt no one cared to listen. I recall how while raising my sons I learned that although they would not listen to me, they would read every word I wrote and taped up on the wall.
