This is as real as it gets. It's a scary thing - vulnerability. It's one thing to write to the faceless world. It's easy to sing to that world. It's also a piece of cake to mark up images so much that it would be impossible to recognize the face. But tonight I risk losing face-lessness.
It's time to shift focus. There's a lot to consider when other (innocent) people are involved in an AOL-Journaler's life. As I delve into my process - and share it with 'the world' - I need to get clear about my intentions. One of the reasons I started this journal was to have a candid place to release whatever needed to be released. It was also my intention to hash out some creativity and play a little bit. As my journal developed I began putting obvious signs of the real me in here. Then I added my music. So much for being candid. I need to take full responsibility for the content in my journal. I've noticed my counter is skyrocketing yet most of the same people are leaving comments. So before this gets way out of hand, I've decided to make a few subtle but very important changes. I've made some great friends, met some very interesting people and I am excited about continuing on this path. I thank you all for your support (comment or no comment).
