what I wanted to be, though not all at the same time

popular, pretty, smart, slender, athletic, unique, thoughtful, kind, practical, comfortable, intelligent, funny, wise, at ease, talented, stylish, bohemian, carefree, happy, understanding, interesting, modest, professional, artistic, casual, friendly, musical, healthy, respected, well-read, well-fed, well-housed, well-financed, well-loved.

...and she thought and thought till her thinker was sore

I'm committed to making the most of my blog but it's been difficult to decide exactly how I want to approach this public writing. When I first started the blog, about 4 years ago, it was written somewhat anonymously so I felt quite free to write about issues of personal importance.  My thoughts, my opinions, what the heck?  When I realized that my ramblings might be read by individuals who knew me, I changed the tone somewhat and it became a journal of knitting and coffee - photo heavy.  This wasn't as satisfying in terms of content but it was safer in terms of boundaries.

I've decided to make one more change to see if I can write blogs that are interesting to me and are also actually worth writing down and sending into cyberspace.  I'm interested in many MANY things - issues, subjects - so the topics will vary; however, the main goal will be, as I said on the Twitter, to reflect an intersection between my life (thoughts, feelings, ideas, happenings) and my fondness for coffee.  I look forward to seeing if it actually works.
