"Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But even the hairs on your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows."
Matthew 10:29

The Beginning

I decided to start a blog.
For what purpose, you may ask. I am asking myself the same question. I am not a wit nor a writer, so I cannot promise many earth-shattering thoughts.

A teacher of mine used to quote C.S. Lewis in saying, "We read to know we are not alone". And, I think, this applies the same to the writer. There is something about the pen and paper (or, in this case, the keyboard and computer screen) that provides solace. A place where we can come and express our inmost thoughts and feelings without being judged or even certain if they are right or wrong. Yet, on the same token, we hope someone may stumble upon our deepest contemplations and somehow relate. That they will connect with us and share in our joy and pain. That our thoughts on the page will be accepted in spite of our words which often are not. Yes, that we will know we are not alone. If I am honest, this is the reason I write. So, here goes...

"Are you lonely?
Are my scars too deep?
Do you have them too?
Or do you only love the ones who look like you?"
