Back to the Future

2 Comments 08 May 2010

I feel like I need to go back before I can go forward.  I haven’t ever done a blog before and there are some things you should know about me before we move on in this relationship.  That is what I feel like it is, just so you know.  Because I believe we are in a relationship, I really feel like we are starting in the middle and that feels, well, as my best friend’s 7th grader says, “AWKWARD!”  So, I am going to go back and tell you about the past so we can move on to the future.

I am going to write a series of posts that will be, well, “My Life in 20 Posts or Less.”  If that sounds really boring or way too personal to you, then you may come back in say, two weeks and start reading again, but I just can’t get past this weird feeling that we are relating in this vacuum.  We need a context.  We need a history.

I truly believe that we all have a story to tell and when we take time to think through our story we really can begin to better understand where we have come from and learn who we are.  I also believe that when we listen to each other’s stories, although they are each different, there are themes or threads that run through each story that remind us of our own.

When this resonance happens, it both connects us with our own story in a deeper way, helping us to understand ourselves more fully and it connects us with the storyteller as well, creating a communing over the common thread or theme.  Our stories are powerful for both building community and for developing a fuller and more meaningful understanding of our lives, our souls, our person.27chicago

Okay, okay, enough about story, what about mine?  I won’t drone on and on with all the details, but I will cover some highlights that I think have shaped and scarred, some low-lights that have fanned the flames of adversity and forged the metal of my character (yes, I do have character) and a few funny stories that paint a picture of how I ended up writing this blog.

By the end of it all, I hope you and I will be better aquainted and you will still want to hang around.  At least I will know that you have a backdrop in which to place the crazy things I say and a past from which to translate the present of who I am.

That being said, let’s go back…so we can move on to the future!

things to make you wonder~

“I am a frayed and nibbled survivor in a fallen world, and I am getting along. I am aging and eaten and have done my share of eating too. I am not washed and beautiful, in control of a shining world in which everything fits, but instead am wondering awed about on a splintered wreck I've come to care for, whose gnawed trees breathe a delicate air, whose bloodied and scarred creatures are my dearest companions, and whose beauty bats and shines not in its imperfections but overwhelmingly in spite of them...” Annie Dillard
