Hello, It's Me

"Hello, it's me
I've thought about us for a long, long time
Maybe I think too much but something's wrong
There's something here that doesn't last too long
Maybe I shouldn't think of you as mine

Seeing you
Or seeing anything as much as I do you
I take for granted that you're always there
I take for granted that you just don't care 
Sometimes I can't help seeing all the way through

It's important to me
That you know you are free
'Cause I never want to make you change for me..."

Todd Rundgren, "Hello, It's Me..."

I love that song.  I've missed you all.  And so, I'm back, under a new title, a new blog.  I just felt the need for change and had created this site sometime back, but was afraid to jump in, I guess...

Circumstances made me stop posting on the other blog, but I missed it - the writing, the camraderie, you.  So, I've decided to begin again.  Afresh, anew.  And hopefully, my friendly readers will find me - and I'll find them.  As to the unfriendly?  I can't control that.

We're going through some change in our lives, the man and I.  The changes are positive, I'm thinking, and we're embracing this new season.   We believe His plans for us are good.  But you know, change is difficult.  You become used to the old ways, and even complacent.  So when the winds of change blow, you first smell them, then taste them, then try them on. You walk it out.

To do that, you trust.  You have to trust.

We have to trust.

I'm not even sure where we are in that cycle, but we're walking it out together.

So, c'mon.  Join us.  Walk with us, as our lives morph.  As I meet my 3rd boss in as many months.  As himself gives notice to his old company with no discernible plan in sight - just trusting the timing - and starts anew.

I'm sure of one thing, and one thing only.  The ride?  It won't be boring.

It's never boring around here.

I'm diving in!


  1. change. I think it's contagious.
