My first blog post

If a blog is published and no one sees it, does it really exist? Zen koan for the night. I sit here in the late evening darkness, three stories up, window open, listening to the faint sound of rain which reaches a crescendo with each passing car. I have lived here for two years, at eye level with two church steeples, and I still marvel at my luck to have finally found my ivory tower, 46 stairs up with Navajo white walls. Two rooms, twelve-foot ceilings, flooded with north light during the day and celestial images at night. I am surrounded by overdue homework for my latest online art class, half-finished watercolor artist biographies on my bedside table, and the usual household rubble that comes from living alone and rarely having visitors. I am content, even happy most days. This blog already feels like a book in installments, perhaps a heartfelt thank you note to all those who shared the path with me for a while along the way. You will meet them as inspiration leads me down each of those trails. Enough that I have launched this project— the writing easy, navigating WordPress a bit challenging. We shall see where it all leads.

About Bobbie Herron

I sit here in my loft studio, surrounded by watercolor brushes and paints, fountain pens, sketchbooks, journals- wanting more than anything to write and paint at the same time. I am the fourth generation of journal-keeping women, starting in 1862, and I have read their words and between their lines. This blog was inevitable: thoughts on the unsung glory of women whose lives were recorded and transformed through their writing and art.
