50 things about me – revised

Posted in Uncategorized on August 29, 2007 by bosquechica

Well, as I was saying.

Completed 50 things — there are 50 more, or more, or more. To see the completed list, go to the about page.

Meanwhile, I believe I will set a goal of at least one bite of writing per day.

Working toward “about”

  • personal v. public
  • professional v. personal
  • beautiful v. ugly
  • affirming v. condemning
  • challenging v. easy
  • fun v. work

Well, there it is. I am standing at the edge of the pool, sticking my toe in and recoiling — it’s so cold!!! (Just jump, just jump — for crying out loud.)

Consistency and honor, compassion, energy, focus, and that bone-crushing fatigue.

The writer me reaches so high. The personal me has a hard time seeing how that happens.

Well, a personal blog is more likely to show my scars and my weaknesses, and that has been more threatening than I thought it would be. Me being kind of a trench-coat tell-all type of person, at times in my real life.

To give me structure and get me into these waters, I will start with one of those lists: 50 things about me. Thanks to Ombudsben for giving such a stellar example.

But first a word from our sponsor: I will now go earn a chunk of change and will resume this exercise in “about” later this afternoon. Thank you for your patience.

Got back on August 12th and went immediately back to work, which so crushed my joie de vacance (et mariage) that I sulked for almost two weeks,

but now I’m ready to start writing again.

After I buy fresh chile at the farmer’s market next door.

Expect changes

Well, here I am, checking in at my new digs.

 Looks a little bare. I’ll need to decorate.

In the meantime, for those of you who read me at Cuentos, welcome to “Trees”, where I will write other-than-fiction.

And decorate. Did I mention?

L and I are leaving for Quebec in a day or two, will be married next Thursday, and will be back shortly after that.

Please check in with me as I explore some new options.
