Listening to: “Road to Nowhere” – The Talking Heads
Yes, I feel like that sometimes, like I am on a “road to nowhere”. But then I look at where I have been, what joys and pain this life has brought my way. And I realize it is a road that has already lead me somewhere – to be who I am today.
Is this post about blogging? YES.
My blog stats tell me that I have published 172 posts and have started drafts for 144 more.
Is it a road to nowhere? No. My writing goals are long term. I never expected for it to reach a huge audience right out of the gate. I have met some great people through interactions on this blog, and have learned a great deal about myself in the writing process.

I know my weak points:
I am working on those things.
Here are two thoughts I like to keep in mind:
Just because something hasn’t happened yet, doesn’t mean it won’t.
Writing and art of any kind (music, painting, photography) are cumulative efforts and lifelong pursuits, not something you do just to make money.
I will keep writing, learning, traveling, shooting stills and video, singing and all things that make me feel alive, as much as I can, as along as I can. Hearing that something I created (a blog, a video, a still, a story) touched someone, in some way, always makes my day.
If you’ve read this so far, THANKS. What have you seen on my blog that resonates with you?
Reaching a larger audience with all of it is a goal, a hill to top. But the journey is the fun part. Let’s see how far we can go.
Thanks for tuning in, I promise at least a hundred and seventy-two more.
