Nothing Gold

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay. -Robert Frost

I am a white American middle class suburban housewife trying desperately to tell herself that that is not who she is. One time I was a glowing young ruffian. Oh my God it was a million years ago.

On my blog

I have decided to start my own blog. My handsome consort was having such fun with his new blog that I decided to try my hand at it. I'm not sure exactly why the idea of putting my thoughts online as opposed to in a regular pen-and-ink journal appeals to me, but it does. I suppose that something in me wants complete strangers to read it and say,
"Hey, this girl is interesting! and clever! and witty!" but I think (and hope) that it is something more than that. I think that part of the appeal is that I don't have to be interesting. I can write my thoughts on this site knowing that my dear friends can read it and learn more about me. I also know that they are allowed to skim through it, or skip parts, or not read it at all. This gives me the freedom to go into as much depth as I want, more depth than I probably would in person, or in email for fear of boring my confidant. Yes, that is where the appeal lies, and that is what the purpose of my blog will be. I intend to attempt to allow those who want to to get to know me better to do it here. I will put bits of myself in this online journal so that my dear friends can read it, or not.
