Seven Things

I've been sitting and wondering how to get my foot back into the world of blogs since I've been silent for some time now. Thoughts and ideas raced around in my brain and eventually became a jumble of too many things colliding with each other to get out and be expressed. Overwhelmed by the clamour, I procrastinated. I chided myself for doing so, still avoidance prevailed. I wished for a pensieve like the one Dumbledore possessed (Harry Potter reference) but since I'd have to move to Hogwarts for that I proceeded, instead, to flit through blogs I track. Which is how I chanced upon having been tagged to list seven things about myself. So here we go, I begin typing again hoping the ease with which I used to write before magically makes its appearance...

Here are the rules for "7 Facts about me"---

(a) List these rules on your blog.

(b) Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog.

(c) Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.


I am...

1) 'Woman, hear me roar'

2) Stronger than I believed myself to be

3) A Nomad - I have a wanderer's soul

4) A Seeker and then a discover-er

5) A Bleeding Heart

6) A new found Pantheist

7) ALIVE

While writing up that list it came to me that I was able to find positive words to use instead of disparaging ones. And that in itself gave me confidence about myself. If you think about it you'll realize that the world we live in is catering more and more towards the people who seem to find excuses in not being responsible for the lives they lead. But, I digress. Instead, for now, let me tag 7 people who will hopefully share themselves in this small itemised manner.

Gary, Lindsay, AJ, Dimi, Nova, ... and that's all I have to name for now.

Nice to see you back at your blog. I confess to having abandoned mine the past few months - a combination of too busy, not sure what to say, getting into Facebook ... and pursuing romance in 3d.

I like your 7 Vee - how would you describe a Pantheist?
