    Five Things to Know About Me Today

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Abigail Holder, Dec 3, 2014.

    Five things to know about me today.

    1. I am a story waiting to be told.

    I have had an unusual journey propelled by circumstances much of which have been out of my control.

    2. I am compelled to tell the story.

    The telling of the story began as journaling and evolved to be either memoir or novel.

    3. Writing and storytelling are forms of therapy.

    Writing my story is my attempt to connect to the events and thereby the emotions connected to the events.

    4. True life can be stranger than fiction.

    I have begun my story as a fiction because even I cannot believe it. In fiction anything is possible.

    5. In life anything is possible.

    I have only begun to write my story and already have discovered many roads I could have taken. As my story develops, I am optimistic that the story will stop at the *long grass.

    "Ah, could I lay me down in this long grass
    And close my eyes, and let the quiet wind
    Blow over me—I am so tired, so tired
    Of passing pleasant places! All my life,
    Following Care along the dusty road,
    Have I looked back at loveliness and sighed;
    Yet at my hand an unrelenting hand
    Tugged ever, and I passed. All my life long
    Over my shoulder have I looked at peace;
    And now I fain would lie in this long grass And close my eyes.
    Yet onward! "
