Loose ends.

I've never considered myself to be a fantastic writer. I wouldn't even say that excellent or distinguished describe my writing style. But (fanstastic writers probably don't start their sentences with but and and), I would say that the words in my head come out more intelligibly through my fingers than through my mouth most of the time. I'm okay with that. And, you know, the more I write, the better I speak. Weird.

I think an excellent writer (or even just a good one) would make sure to tie up any loose ends.

In the first post of my story, I left y'all hanging with these words, "But being good betrayed me." Did I tell you how I was betrayed when I continued on? Nooooooo.

Then in my second post, I did the same thing and left you hangin' again! I guess I got caught up in the thrill of suspense.

I promise you that I will endeavor to tie up all my loose ends shortly. I will pull you away from that cliff and draw you to the warm fire where we can share some tea and be vulnerable. It only gets more vulnerable from here and I'm nervous about that. I hope I don't chicken out... ! I do want to be real and honest, but don't know how far or deep to go while it's out there for all to see in Blogtopia.

You will have to wait just a bit more as I will be missing-in-action for a couple weeks.
In the meantime, enjoy life and love and family!
I leave you with this picture to ponder...

Am I really letting my daughter take a picture of me while I'm in the Loo?

You be the judge.
