Hello world... this is me!  in case you have forgotten.  My blog, almost lost forever, rekindled.   

As I've read past posts and gone through old drafts, I came across one that for some reason never got published.  It is appropriate to publish today since I've met and passed this goal on time:

2014
"I'm sure you've heard that phrase, probably more notably in the movie, from Napoleon Dynamite, where he says, "your mom goes to college".  It rings true for me, though, since I am that momma.  I embarked upon a journey 4 years ago that I now cannot look back at.  I must look forward.  Upon figuring up the requirements for my new degree, I can declare with my feet facing forward that I can and will graduate Spring of 2015. "

Endless days stretch before me
waiting for my feet
to bravely traverse their
unknown paths.

Held in the comforting grasp of time

I stand tall in the face of forever
watching hazey golden dreams
dance around the doorway's crown.

Whispered voices beckon, enchantment awaits

and my heart bursts free of chains
I step through,
closing yesterday's door behind me.
