To begin with…

Enreal, let me start by asking you a question; (no need to answer if you don’t want to). What made you decide to start your blog?

I will be honest. It was two weeks after my father died. I was lost, confused, bursting with pain and had nowhere to turn. My family looked to me as the rock… it was only a matter of time before I crumbled. I needed an escape. I needed to detach from my life.

This is my beautiful detachment… this is my salvation… this is my escape… this is where I can express my dreams, my desires, my visions… this is my minds home, my hearts retreat, my souls property… this is who I could be without limitations…

If the people I have met along my virtual journey in my journals would see who I was in the real world, they would be surprised. I suppose this is true for most… we share the best of ourselves here, that is why it is such a beautiful instrument… I know I have learned so much from the people I have met here and am blessed they have journeyed along side with me…

AS for the surprise… it is not that I am not a bad person or different from the words I write. I am simply busy.I work too hard and yearn for more… so much more… and I am too afraid to live… I live for my limitations…

So J… this is why I blog, this is why I write here… in some way I gain my freedom through my readers. Thank you all for journeying with me

  1. I feel blessed every time I visit. This is my escape where your words always speak to me and inspire me.
    I fear that I lack the words to express just how valuable and inspiring your “beautiful detachment” is to me and I feel so privileged and honoured to journey along with you.

    Thank you enreal..You are an Angel

  2. Oh, you grabbed my heart here. I, too, have been afraid to live and we may be writing for similar reasons: We meet and give the best parts of ourselves to the Internet-world with our writing. Take care!

  3. I was intrigued when I first stopped here…afraid to comment…that i couldnt possibly say anything as deep and beautiful as you…but then your words touched me over and over and finally I just wanted to let you know how wonderful your journey is…to those of us who follow it…

    thanks for allowing us to walk along…its quite a stunning path…

    • Your writing is heartfelt and clear… Summer… remember the rain… it is as refreshing and pure as your words… blessings along your beautiful journey… thank you for being a part of mine

    • Mark… What can I say? You’ve been here since the beginning, you’ve seen my writing transform through my different states of emotional being! now thats a roller coaster… thank you for taking the ride 🙂

    We should add that you are a wonderful writer, expressing aspects of your soul’s journey in ways that leave us open to question; who, what, and why, in ourselves.
