First time poster, long time member!

I was going to do the survey, but it wouldn't let me copy and paste.

Therefore you get my thoughts off the top of the dome.

I always loved language. When I was little I felt as though the ability to read and write was this big secret that was being kept from me. All I wanted to do was be let in on the secret. I would stare at pages and pretend I could read until I actually could. After I got reading down pat I began to write.

It started off as something I was good at, but it grew into a love. I keep two journals. One is just day-to-day thoughts and emotions and the other one is my spiritual journal. I don't neccessarily have a ritual wiht my writing, but I like to write in mypersonal journal either in my room or at a bookstore. I like being an island in a sea of people. I think that's where I get the best self relflection. As far as my spiritual journal I like to be in my room by myself or at Bible study or church taking notes.

I used to think that my purpose for this gift was to write for Vibe and live in the City in a Brownstone and lead this somewhat superficial existence. As I mature and grow I feel like I'm supposed to be doing something else with this gift. I just don't know what.


  1. It will come to you!

    Keep posting because I know I want to read more!


  2. I know exactly what you mean... I'm in a similar state of soul-searching, and Jenn is right... you'll figure it out. Hang in there, and keep up the blogging both here and on Myspace! My intention with the Table is to create a community of creatives so that we can consult and discuss about issues such as this. Keep us up to date, and welcome (officially) to the Table!

  3. Wow, I can really identify with how you feel. Isn't it funny how we make all these plans for our future, but then as our lives unfold we end up in places we never expected. I have no doubt God will open up doors for you!
