Yes, I have lost what little of my mind I had left. But this looks like it’s going to be a bunch of fun so I thought I’d give it a shot. If you’d like to join in the fun, hop on over to The Domestic Witch to get the 411. There are a few *rules* but what’s a party without a little bit of guidance??

The blog I have tagged this week is: Dancing in the Rain

The first question will be: Why did you start blogging?

My Answer:

I began writing this blog as a way to help me through severe seasonal depression while we lived in Michigan. I had never experienced the days upon days of nothing but snow and cold and having to stay inside for extended periods of time.

Since then my writing has evolved and changed into many different venues. Sometimes I write just to put words on *paper*, others I write if something is on my mind and I have to rage at the cause. Then there are times when I write to give updates on what is going on in our world. Because we have family & friends all across the country who sometimes check in here, I try to keep them informed of our life and how we are doing.

Even though after October, I tend to fall off the wagon and not write every day, that doesn’t mean I don’t want to or I’ve forgotten about my blog. There are many days when I’m busy with the Witchling or doing household chores that something will pop into my head and send me running to the computer so I can put it down in draft. Sometimes I go back to that draft, look at what I wrote and think what the hell was I thinking, and promptly send it back to the draft folder. Where it may stay for weeks… or… until I figure out IF those thoughts really were important enough to post for public view.

Then there are also the times I have heard a new song and I quickly run to YouTube to see if I can find a video to share. Or maybe someone has shared a story or poem or picture, or even their thoughts and that sets me off into fingers flying mode.

What does writing mean to me?? It means I have a self contained therapy session and when the fingers finish flying over the keyboard, I can chose to share my discoveries about myself or not, depending on the outcome of that therapy session.

Author: Vickie

I am Vickie, but known by many names, wife, mother, friend, BITCH! And each title I more than deserve. I have been defying description for more than half my lifetime. I occasionally have my sanity, although my circle of friends might disagree with that; I’m a mix of opposites, random, different and unconventional. I’m a self taught know it all and even though I can admit I really don’t know everything, I do know enough to carry on a conversation with most anyone. Some call me mouthy, I freely speak my mind…I do NOT tolerate BS. I’m a wife, Mom, Abi, Witch, eclectic, free-thinking, Priestess in training, wanna be gardener, who loves all things Faerie, cooking and everything about my life!

  2. It was fun tagging along this afternoon. I enjoy your writing and will look for you often.

    p.s. I have SAD too and use full spectrum light bulbs next to the chair I do most of my reading, in my studio and next to my bed. It really helps..or maybe it’s the Wellbutrin!

    • Hi Adrianne! Welcome to the Lair! So happy to have new visitors and I do hope you will come back often. I’ve never tried the full spectrum light bulbs, but have learned to use meditation and herbs when I’m feeling low. I’ll pop on over and read you as well…

  3. I answered you at my blog but thought I’d come here too. You did it right but you also can add the code for Linky Tools to your post. Go to my post and at the bottom it will say Get the code here. You can copy and paste the html into your post. Then someone can add their link at your blog but it will show up for everyone that has added the code. They can blog hop without even having to visit the priginal post.
