oh dear

Here I am. I'm writing my thoughts.

This might not seem very scary or noteworthy to anyone else, but I only recently realized that I have a body and as I allow myself to materialize I've begun to notice that my body can do things that affect the bodies around me. My hands can touch. My eyes can see. My ears can hear. My mouth can speak. And these things actually have a real impact in the world. Quite honestly, I would really like to go on pretending that I'm not responsible for any of that, but the jig is up. It's time to own my physicality. It's time to notice all of that touching and seeing and hearing and speaking. So I'm taking my first tentative steps into outloudness.

But for now it's late and I'm tired. I just knew that if I waited until morning this little blogging space in the world would never be born.


  1. I'm glad you took the risk Terri!

    It'll be fun to join you in your findings.


  2. I like that touching part . . . .

    Oh stop it! I'm her husband for goodness sakes

  3. Oh and hey Tom;
    Nice to meet you (if that 's what this is). Thanks for inspiring my baby. She's a wonderfully gifted writer. I really think it's one of her main qualities that God has gifted her with. She just needed the venue.
    Now I hardly ever see her cause she's a blog-a-holic!
    Blessings . . . .
