I’m one of those people who never has a blank space in their head. Ever. Never ever! In fact, I never have a single thought in my head. Not even just a couple of thoughts. In fact, it is usually so full of ‘stuff’, images, ideas, thoughts, feelings, impressions, that is feels a bit like a runaway train. Have you ever seen one of those movies where a person is sitting in front of a wall that is covered by a bank of TV screens, all going at once with different images, all changing channels, flashing images? It’s a little bit like that but not as organised. And you should see me after I’ve had a cup of coffee!
I have a theory as to why I can’t seem to draw to save myself…..I think it’s because, try as I might, I have yet to be able to imagine a single image in my head at one time.
I used to be afraid of it….afraid to let it go, to let it do as it will and was always trying to slow it down and manage it. About a dozen or so years ago, I decided to just let it be. At first it was daunting, then chilling, then thrilling! Now it amazes me with all the stuff it comes up with and the biggest challenge has been to keep any kind of order! Thank god for Evernote I say. My external ‘brain’!
Anyhow…this is all leading to something. One of the things I am constantly doing, is having conversations with myself. Yes I know….I’ve pretty much lost the plot! But they are really interesting. It’s usually with family, friends, all of you QS family or even people who I’ve never met but feel the need to talk to.
QS of course, consumes me nearly 24hrs a day. Everyone I meet, come across, hear of and so on, has some kind of need or message, or desire, dream and so on, that they are seeking answers or confirmation for. The QS Forum is AMAZING as it gives me a chance to talk with everyone, help out where I can, offer support or advice or just to listen. And I LOVE the forum.
Facebook also gives me the chance to share somewhat, all that I and my beloved family and QS friends are up to but it is still limited. I don’t really get the chance to have ‘Those Conversations’.
So…I’ve decided to start a blog. Well Shane told me I should have a blog. I feel like I have a lot to say, you all seem to want me to say what I have to say and to hear what I have to say. So I’m going to….or rather I am now a blogger. From now.
Shane is going to make me a nice new shiny blog but I’m too keen to get started to wait so I’ve started here and will shift to the new one once it’s done.
So at long last, I’ll be able to share a lot more with those of you interested, my thoughts, opinions (lots of those!!!) and advice re horses and so on. A bit like my ‘Thought of the Day’ posts but with more meat! I’ll also be popping a bit on here about the books I am working on.
I hope what I have to say is of interest to you. If so, that’s fantastic. If not, thanks for visiting…so glad you read to this point.
See you all on the next entry….I wonder what it’ll be about.
