Welcome! (& What Took You So Long?)

Strolling in the woods
this tiny portal teases,
"Welcome!  Come inside..."


... and What Took You So Long?

I thought you would never get here!  (In all honesty, I thought I would never get here – but why split hairs?)   I’ve been working on this blog for what seems like forever and fantasizing about it for much, much longer.
          Pondering …

Problem being that I’m a bit of a perfectionist (!) and my own worst critic (who isn’t?), so I ponder… and puzzle… procrastinate… and postpone, and, with several projects “in the works” simultaneously, I've been progressing at the speed of a snail.  

At this point, I'm figuring I’ve spent WAY too much time pondering, and it is time to move forward, so… here it is:  my 1st posting for my 1st (ever!) blog -- with a welcome to you (above), and some excellent advice (below) for anyone (like me)  fearful of taking that first step into a new endeavor.  

Hope you enjoy -- and return often.

Do not be afraid
Don't be tethered to the past
let go and be free


  1. OH MY GOODNESS! SO GLAD YOU ARE FINALLY DOING THIS! And I THINK I might be your very first follower ... a total honor!!!

    1. Oh Marie! I think you "bumped heads" with someone else when you tried to sign up to "follow" my blog. Unless you did it anonymously? I don't see you here. Maybe you want to try again?? :-]

  2. This is so perfect, Pamela!!

    I love how you've drawn us in your favorite pondering place,the peek-a-boo tree hole and the personal voice you use to describe your process and creativity!

    The sentiment with word and video really ties it all together!

    I love it and I'm so happy for you! Welcome to blogosphere with arms wide open!

    Smiles and blessings!
