Welcome to my world.

O.k. here goes nothing. I've talked about this for so long and so now I'm finally taking the plunge. I have always been a creative person, although few people knew it for most of my life. For reasons I have yet to discover I've always been afraid of everyone else and yet I've always yearned to be accepted. This of course made for a rather awkward childhood and adolescence. Somehow though I've mangaged to carve out a good life, not perfect, but damn good life. However I want more. I'm tired of constantly dreaming of success, at 40yrs old I'm ready to do something towards achieving it. I may fail but I'm ready to finally take some chances and begin living for once. I do not want my son to look back and think how sad it was that I had all these dreams and never did anything about them. I want to show him to never give up.

I'll keep this first one short for now. Over time I'll be talking about my writings and my art and whatever else crosses my noggin from time to time. If I piss you off let me know, if I make you proud let me know, if I bore the crap out of you let me know; I probably will ignore it but at least I'll know. (That was a joke in case you were wondering. I'm an artist/writer not a stand up comedian.)

Well, I'm proud of you, Kevin. It takes a lot of courage to stand up and declare yourself and that's what you just did.

I'm looking forward to reading more.

Kevin - nice first post. Looking forward to more - you'll enjoy the freedom of a blog, of expressing your thoughts and ideas in an outlet that allows some expression of your creativitiy. Hoping you'll eventually post some of your drawings as well!

Hi Kevin, once you let the creative cat out of the bag, you'll find it harder to get it back in that you would a real cat.

For this, the procrastinators among us give thanks.

Best of luck with your blog - and all other endeavors in the creative space.

Enjoy! (that was not a request) :)

All right Kevin! I'm so glad you're diving in. It's surprising how close our lives are - I'm just beginning to take my writing more seriously and I'll be 40 in just - oh no - 20 days! Yikes!
I look forward to reading more, and thanks for listing my blog!

I've heard (from older women friends) that a lot of women lose their sense of identity somewhere between their teens and their thirties - and never get it back. Writing is a great remedy for that.

Thanks for posting 'crazy tales'.
