Meandering

That's a good word. I seem to remember having it during my freshman year of high school (was that seriously almost 7 years ago?!?). Meander... the online definition (not that I didn't remember...) is "to proceed by or take a winding or indirect course." That's a happy thought isn't it? It brings to mind winding rivers and curving roads - the sorts of things, which, although eventually taking you to the same destination as, say, a strait or a highway, are guaranteed to make the journey infinately more beautiful and enjoyable.

So! How does that relate to the issue of this blog and it's present lack of direction? Well, you see, that's just it! My life is a never ending marvelous, meandering adventure. I'm the type of person who takes backroads instead of highways. I prefer walking the city over speeding by on the subway. &nd so, instead of sitting and waiting and planning until I can proudly boast at having a straight-and-narrow course in which to direct this page of writing, I'm going to meander the way I do in life. I may still end up in a particular destination, but I've decided I'm not going to rule out the chance of discussing some simply wonderful (or simply silly) things because it doesn't fit under my "catagory."

I love life. So even within my quaint little blog, I'm going to stop and enjoy whichever flowers I want whenever I so choose! So that's my story and I'm sticking to it like a bee to honey.

You probably should as well =]

Meandering is good! I think that's how we find our way a lot of the time... It's still moving forward and that's what matters sometimes - just making progress of some kind even if you're not sure what the ultimate destination is.

I really believe that and do quite a bit of it myself...

Enjoy the adventure...

Love the whimsical feel of your blog. :]

Well, yeah. I suppose that if you really wanted to, you could say that Beast is just a bunch of jumbled up Disney movies. lol. Then again, Walt didn't come up with the original fairy tales. He took the old ones and added some new twists along with a bunch of great sing-along songs. :] I suppose I'm doing the same. I'm just taking some of my old favorites and making my own version.

Anyway, I'm not sure how much of Beast you've read yet, but I hope that you'll take the time to read through the whole thing and really enjoy it!

God bless,
Jane
