Digital ramblings without my Dixon Ticonderoga...

100th Post, 100 Words

My first journal was started in January of 1985. Wow! 25 years ago. Ironically, that was the month my younger brother died of meningitis. I only wrote in my little blue journal until early March, but it stood as a history for me as to what happened during those days. I wrote about things like who visited our family, and how I dealt with loss as a second grader.

Later I would write several journals while on expedition to England and France. I loved walking though some of Paris’ notable art galleries, sketching and jotting down my thoughts. I would capture all my thoughts and feelings into a spiral bound notebook to later ponder them.

Finally, last November I started this weblog – blog. I have enjoyed every minute of composition. To date, I have written 99 entries. For my 100th blog, I give you my 100 favorite words. This process has taken almost a week. I have scribbled and erased many times but here is my final list!
