It Is Well With My Soul

I've missed writing here. I desperately want to write.

I had a plan for what I was going to write first. This wasn't it.  Yet this feels right.

So much has changed since I was regularly writing last.  Much of it wonderful...a little of it bad.

"The Fort" is now a regular part of my life - although one that will likely take a bit of a hiatus when the weather turns cold.  As I was walking tonight...thinking...clearing my head of all the stuff that gets shoved in there during the day and making room for all of the creativity, I kept coming back to the words from the hymn - It Is Well With My Soul.  In all honesty, while I was walking, that was all I could remember.  I had to look up the lyrics when I got home.

The title though has come to be how I've been thinking of my word for this year - Authentic.  To be authentic is to do things that are well with my soul.  It doesn't need a "faith" context when I think of it that way - it's a statement that for me seems easy to agree with - regardless of religion.  I happen to be fine with it in a Christian context.  If I'm acting in a way that is authentic I'm acting in a way that my soul can live with - it is well with my soul.

And, so I plan to return to this space.  Because this is a space where I am me and I can be well with my soul.  You won't find only posts of pictures - and weird ideas as tonight's may seem to you...I even have a little blog calendar and everything.  We'll see how it goes.  But, it's good to be back here - and I certainly hope it lasts.
