One Step Closer

I heave a sigh of relief as I sit here typing, listening to one of Bach's cello suites. I have completed my Masters. All I have to do now is wait for the diploma, which will come hopefully in February, if not then, in May.

Although my final was not my best work, it was good enough to get a passing grade. My professor considered my capabilities as a writer 'quite impressive'. And to have someone who has a PhD. state that your work is 'impressive' is, well, impressive. It is one thing to say, you do good work, but a quite a wonderful thing when it is said that you do impressive work and are capable of so much more. I hold on to those words in my moments of writers block, which seem to be frequent of late.

I hope to be on this blog more often, addressing an area that I love, and want to nurture. It is my goal to become a writer of one type or another. And in order to be a writer, one must write. So here I go, attempting to achieve the goal of writer in my new and chaotic world. Currently my son is in the other room yelling, and I am sure attempting to get into the garbage can, or pull something out of one of the dirty laundry baskets, but even amidst those distractions, I shall write. God has given me a gift that I shall not waste anymore. Those who are deep in the literary world are impressed by my capabilities, and when I am immersed in a literary conversation, I feel alive, more alive than I have in a while. I must pursue my passion, I must remember my my passion...

Now, it is time to go back to the mundane world of laundry and baby bottles..... but Bach shall continue in the back ground to inspire me to continue in my endeavors.
