Whoever thought I would be saying that? Don’t know if you read my first blog where I had a rant about people telling me that “change is good” and “change is growth” and how I didn’t want to hear it. Well, I now have to admit, it is true! I always knew it, it was just getting through that long, dark tunnel which never seemed to have a ray of light.
Well, there was and is a ray of light….and what rays of light at that. I had forgotten what it was to live in a place where the sun actually comes in through the windows the majority of the day. With the added attraction of a terrace, with the extra added attraction of having the view of the forest surrounding the Alhambra and one of its towers. I am blessed and I can’t stress enough just how blessed and grateful I am.
So much for becoming a blogger!

I say this as a reminder to myself as I must admit that I too am one of those humans! This morning I bought and began writing in my new journal which has had me thinking, when am I ever going to begin my blog? Thus I was prompted to begin this evening after having procrastinated about it for months now. These past weeks I have been reading about blogging, asking advice from others who blog, listened to endless videos on youtube and nothing...empty, asking myself such questions as; can I write? Will anyone read it or be interested? The pressure is on, I have made the commitment, and as one article I read said, one must just START! So off we go!
