Me. Myself and I

Have the courage to go inside and illuminate and reveal things about yourself.

Sherilyn Fenn
Hello Stuart
"Come now, consider thy ways. " (Haggai 1:5)

I am unknown by almost everyone.
Admired by a few.
Resented by many.
Hated by some.
Perhaps loved by one or two.
I was cursed by poverty in an early age.
I was blessed to have spent my life in the arts.
I have been homeless.
I spent a night in jail.
I have a sense of humor.
I don't smile much.
I have loved deeply.
I'm possessive.
I am capable of great deeds.
I am responsible for great mistakes.
I am self educated.
I admit to not knowing things I don't know.
I speak the truth.
I lie.
I face with courage the challenges of life.
I am bewildered by many things.
I live my senior years with thoughts of the future.
Some things confuse me.
I have had my heart broken.
I have let people down.
Most of the time I enjoy being alone.
Sometimes I'm lonely.
I have some good memories of an interesting life.
I have a lot of regrets.
I am fairly self confident at home.
I am bashful and awkward in public.
I have been in many places I wasn't supposed to be.
I have done many things I wasn't qualified to do.
I have done many things well.
I have done some things poorly.
I think I am basically a good man.
I'm struggling to understand myself.

In short, I am a human being.

Never give up.
This invitation is still open for anyone and everyone to post an entry of their own on my journal, Vagabond Journeys http://vagabondjourneys.blogspot.com/.

A new year is upon us and since it is a time for celebrations, remembrances, resolutions and plans for the future I think people have things to say.

Not to take away from the postings on your own journals, but to add to the joy of my own is why I invite you to write for me.

I want to read what your thoughts are about this magical time of the year. This invitation is open to everyone: Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, Pagans, Agnostics, Atheists and the Uncertain or the Confused. Tell me your thoughts on any subject you wish.

There are no limits in regard to length. The only limitation is that, for reasons so far unexplained to me, my blog does not take photographs, animations, videos or pictures of any kind. I deal in words.

Please accept my invitation. Send your entry to my email address dbdacoba@aol.com I will copy and paste it into my journal and it will be displayed promptly. You may sign your name or not as you wish, and you may leave a link to your blog or your email or not, as you wish. I will do NO editing or censoring. Eloquence is not necessary, mind or heart or both is all.

I have 13 Guest Authors so far. Check them out.
All are welcome. Admission is free.
