The Honor and Pleasure is All Mine!
This week when I finally checked my e-mail I found that Technorati had accepted my application to contribute my writing. You honor me by this privilege for it will enable me to share my thoughts, opinions and yes even fact-checked news with a larger audience. With this privilege comes also added responsibility to make certain my words heal rather than hurt, uplift rather than demoralize, and finally foster love and not hate. These are all strong words and this is a lofty goal, I trust I am up to the challenge.
One would think, I should be overjoyed with this new writing opportunity and two years ago I would have, for very few things in my life mean more to me than being able to share myself with others through my writing. Writing enables me to communicate more effectively. When verbal communication sometimes fails me, writing, orders my thoughts, in a more comprehensive way.
However, I digress; I am pleased and honored to write again but not overjoyed yet. It appears that sadness tinges my enjoyment and writing pleasure. In the past two years, I have had major losses in my life. Losses, that I will discuss at another time, when my mind can process and share with you freely. For the present, please accept this meager offering as an introduction into my life, a window if you will into my soul.
Please do not be sad for me for I have hope, which is my lifeline. I cling to this wonderful hope as a small child clings to her mother for comfort. In the coming months, I believe you will truly come to know whom, what gives me faith, hope, joy, peace, and finally the greatest of these, love.
Buona sera i miei amici.
