memory lane  
it was a long, long walk. and it was good.

i went back into my archives of 2005. wow. it was amazing to get reacquainted with your older (younger?) self. suddenly, i am reminded of who i used to be, and who i truly am. i think i may have lost touch with a part of me in recent times, and i have rediscovered myself again.

i have missed being candid on my journal.

i am amazed at how my journal has evolved, from a mishmash of my life and nonsense to endless food missions to the invasion of my wonderful spideykids. as my beautiful lucien peers at me and wipes her face in that adorable manner that only she is capable of, i must say, my spideykids have had such an incredible impact on my life. so much so that it almost drowned out everything else. it was so easy to tune out to everything and not have to deal with it all. but it is time to stop running away. it is time to find my balance.

hello LJ. i'm back.

Welcome back! I missed you and your writing :)

I was thinking about old entries over the weekend and wish I hadn't purged my old journal because it would have been good to see how far I've come since ;)

Don't stray away for too long ok? xoxo

golly, it was quite an experience to travel back to the past. and 2005 wasn't that long ago. it felt like at least 5 years though!

writing has been a way for me to touch base with myself, to collect my thoughts and put them into words. i have definitely lost touch with that part of me. :)

Time sure has a funny way of feeling as though it's been a while. It felt like more than a year since we last saw you and it was only 6 months ago!

it sure does! :)

does this mean there are more and more things happening in our lives? or are we less able to keep up? :D

I reckon it's a bit of both. Work's taking up most of our time, and then something happened at a point in our lives where we decided to take a break from everything?

Now that I said it, I should really get out of our hibernation. hehe.

Hi, Jess

Always nice to see one of your posts - like little gems of wonder and, the way that you look at the world in a different way to others. Please keep posting ;o)

And in reply to your post, today I read:
"We always ask the same questions: Why am I here? What am I doing? Who am I? Where am I going? - Ask yourself these questions often. Every so often, you find that the answers have changed."
JVdrag0nette on October 2nd, 2008 07:53 pm (UTC)
i sure will, joss... i sure will. :)

indeed, the answers change ever so often. some people can live their entire lives without questioning these things. some people do not need to know these things. i'm not one of them. :)
