I’m Lisa, and while I’d like to say I’ve done a million things and I’ve got a laundry list of things I can say about ME and all I have accomplished, I really don’t. No gold star. I’m still trying to figure out who I am. That’s, in large part, why I began this blog and why, if you take a look back at some of my earlier posts you’ll see a bit of an evolution. Me, moving in some small way with each post (in essence, a piece of me that I am with some trepidation sharing with the world) toward an understanding of who I am and what I am “about.” I am a work in progress.
One of the thoughts pervading my mind as of late is, what will I say about myself when I am 50? Fifty years old. A half a century. Two 25 year spans within a lifetime. How will I have changed? Childhood seems far away when I simply look at the numbers, yet hearing a train horn in the distance as I lay in bed can suddenly take me back as if it were yesterday. Sometimes, it definitely feels so.
So there it is. I have no “about.” I have a journey that’s not over yet. A journey that is in constant evolution and one that I have been blessed with the ability to share through words. When I take the time to tap out a simple string, tied together by an idea, a feeling, an emotion, a memory, I connect more with who I am. Perhaps then, when I am 50 I will know more. Maybe then, I will be able to create and clearly articulate who I am, summed up neatly and succinctly on an About page. Until then I will journey and write in this place, this place of words.

Good evening Lisa – Wanted to let you know that your ‘no about’ page is most beautifully written. I don’t know how far away from 50 you are, but I do know that you can say in this very moment that your writing is beautiful. I’ve been reading your poetry this evening and have found much enlightenment within my explorations. Thank you so much for sharing with us…
Hope your evening is most beautiful…
Thank you @Michael33. I am humbled by your words!
