September 28, 2011. I’m not sure where I was or what I was wearing (the latter is far more important), but after a bit of research I would bet your last paycheck that I was likely in my apartment watching President Obama give the address to America’s schoolchildren. Or maybe I was cooking a 5-course meal in red bottom stilettos for my hubby. Nah. I think I was definitely tuned into the national address. Whatever it was I may have been doing or wearing on this day last year, I can say without a doubt that I wasn’t blogging.
The SITS Girls has again challenged me. Only this time I’m unable to meet the challenge which requires that I publish a post that I wrote last year September 28th. Be-Quoted was not yet launched in September of last year, and after canvassing 3 out of my 5 journals it became apparent that I seemingly boycotted writing on September 28th for years. Until…I came across my favorite leather bound journal where I had written “my thoughts” at 6:16 pm on September 28th, 2003. Posting my thoughts, whatever they may have been at that time (because I’m not even sure), is me being courageous. Here’s to writing.
September 28, 2003
Nothing profound in a web of deceit
Nothing real in a fairytale
Nothing meaningful in a life of fantasy
Nothing perfect in a world called “real”
Nothing ugly in a mind so beautiful
No one can see me if I never speak
No one listens when my mouth parts
No one means nothing & nothing could mean anything
This is why I write…
A blank page is the best listener…” – ASM
