I decided to write mostly out of frustration. I had a lot on my mind and needed a way to calm my thoughts. Writing a blog seemed to make sense. My intent at first was to write about politics mostly as that was the initial driving force, but once started I discovered that writing about politics wasn’t any easier than talking about it. I never felt comfortable really saying what I thought or felt.
After a couple posts I began to think more about writing than about politics. I decided I needed to expand my writing topics so I started a list. I wrote down things that interested me: people, pets, plants, politics, poverty, poetry. A pattern emerged–they all began with the letter p. I had my topics, but I still needed a blog title.
Then one morning with my eyes still closed I awoke thinking of how peaceful my life had become. Retiring really had brought more “peace of mind”. Since I was writing a blog to share a “piece of mind” I decided to wrap this idea into blog categories called Ps of Mine. (I like word games.)
I don’t know where I’ll go from here, but hopefully I’ll find something useful to say and you’ll find something of value to read. Thanks for lending me a bit of your time.
