The etymology of the word, break is far more varied than I could have imagined . According to the, Online Etymology Dictionary, its roots include meanings such as;  “short interval between spells of work , stroke of luck,to break, shatter, burst; injure, violate, destroy, curtail; break into, rush into; burst forth, spring out; subdue, tame.”

In the midst of  redefining myself in this world post separation, it seems as though my healing will involve all of the above descriptors.  I am hoping to navigate this time in my life with as much grace and fortitude as I can muster.  Somewhere within me is a tiny seed of hope, which although dormant for a long time, is growing every so slightly week by week.

I have always done my most sincere learning and reflection by reading the words and stories that other courageous souls have put to paper.   Although, I have no idea what I am doing, hang in there, maybe we can learn something together.

Please feel free to leave comments- they are both motivating and comforting to me. And really, what is the world of blogging without feedback but a hypergraphic form of masturbation?

See, I really DO have a sense of humour too, even if my situation as of late has blotted most of my funnies out.

  1. New glorious doors are opening up for you. There is plenty of light. I see it in you and in your smile. Life is only just starting. I wish you best of luck and enthusiasm to greet the new wonderful things that are coming your way. A great fresh start. Never ever feel upset about closing doors and opening new ones. There’s nothing more exciting than that. You are an amazing woman and writer 🙂 Thank you for finding my blog so that I could find yours.

  2. Thank you so much for reading, and following my Blog. I know you speak for many, in your pieces. You are brave to do so, and, I’m sure, helpful to those who don’t have the strength, to write for themselves.
    Thanks, Shel

    • Your blog is filled with many delicious bits of poetry. It is a real treat to read!
      Thank you for your kind comment. I try to write what feels true to me, and hope that others may find some comfort and camaraderie in my words.

  3. I don’t know how you chanced upon my blog but I’m telling you, I am surely glad to have found yours. You must be a pro as your writing is compelling, deep and plain marvelous.

    Thank you so much for the sensitive, comforting, and beautiful comment you left on my latest blog post. I actually have been forcing myself to put words on paper recently which explains the delay in my responses. Please bear with me.

    As a long-time single mom myself, I can relate to your sentiments. I hope this wonderful blog aids in the achievement of every goal you have set for yourself.

    Warmest Regards, Marj

    • Oh, Marj. Your comment made my hear melt in the most delightful way.

      Sometimes, we do not realize the incredible impact that we can have on others, simply by stringing together our sentiment, with craft and honesty. Your blog was a very lucky find for me indeed. I spent time yesterday reading through your work and was touched and entranced by the way that your paint the world through your beautiful, fresh, writing style.

      I am definitely not a pro, but am a willing apprentice to the world of writing. I will take your lovely compliment and keep it close to me, for some of my less than ebullient moments.

      I wish you peace and grace during this difficult time in your life. I lost my mother when I was 22, and know that the grieving can seem to be too much at times, and yet you will come through it with wisdom, and fortitude to spare. Hang in there.

      Warmest of Regards in return.
