I feel like Deliriously Divine is the blog where I whine and complain too much. And, while that may be true, I hope I bring more to the table. You are loyal readers and I love the interactions I have with fellow bloggers. One such blogger, Winsomebella, has given me the Versatile Blogging award- in a wonderful post rich with tidbits about storytellers. I consider myself a storyteller and one day I hope to have my book on someone’s table and pictured in someone’s blog post.
Writing a blog that is well-written and compelling to others isn’t always easy. The rewards of a story well-done come from the connection with readers. I am always thrilled when I’ve written something that evokes emotion for me and my readers. The last couple of posts have been that way. One was written through tears and the more recent one about men and their parts had me laughing with delight as I captured the essence of my experiences.
This is not a serious, somber blog-for the most part I’m sharing the sexy and not so sexy side of life after 50. I’ve shared other bits and pieces of my life in a previous anonymous blog and if you want to see the fuller ‘me’ leave me a comment and I’ll redirect you. Though many of you have followed me down the road.And, I thank you for that.
As I see it life is full of challenges- a mix of lightheartedness and near heartbreak. The job is to get through each day, often minute by minute. I’m not sure what the next few weeks of blogging hold for me-I’ve taken down my dating profiles and temporarily abandoned the quest. The last two men I’ve encountered, both named John, have tried to push into my life too quickly.
Maybe I’ll find new adventures to share that don’t involve the opposite sex? Can you imagine? This month I’m planning a few outings to new places and events, alone. I miss out on so much because I feel awkward going out alone, but I’m tired of staying at home. So!!
Thank you to Winsomebella for the award, she is such a beautiful writer that I feel somewhat undeserving.
I am supposed to share 7 things readers might not know about me, so here goes:
- I grew up in a small community of about 500.
- My first bra was a 36AA.
- I lost my virginity at age 17, under my head was a pillow from a coffin.
- #3 introduced me to LSD.
- My right eye is half blue, half green.
- I met a married man in 2004 or 2005 and had an affair. It has continued on and off right through the early part of this year. I fell in love with him.
- I have completed most of the coursework for my PhD. That was a long time ago and another world.
Anything titillating you want to share?
