I’ve always been very private. Fiercely so. So much so that even my family and closest of friends get frustrated with me. But as I have stubbornly embraced the advancing times, I am finding fresh new balance and setting different boundaries that are ever evolving and exciting. I can honestly say that by sharing in ways that I would not have felt comfortable doing before, I have found my life to be truly richer and deeper in so many ways. The fact that we are all able to connect from the furthest reaches of the world so instantly and effortlessly is remarkable. And what’s palpable is that the things that really matter, still matter most.
If you are reading this, you have somehow stumbled upon my website for what could be one of several reasons, maybe even by mistake, and I thank you for taking the time to stay and peruse. Welcome. Engage. The community I have met through my travails is uniquely diverse and the most unconditionally loving of hearts and such thoughtful minds. Wonderfully audacious. I love hearing from you. I love learning from you. I love being challenged by you. I love that now I can’t imagine my life without you.
Which is why I started ‘Beneath the Sheetz.’ You have been so encouraging. I wanted to continue our dialogue more actively. I feel this will unfold organically as the posts will range in topic and tone, but what I do know for sure is that I will inevitably say things that annoy you and you disagree with. It’s par for the course.
I look forward to much discovery and embracing this space as a home for honesty, growth, and fun.
And I love that you are indulging me right now. Si, I know it may be maudlin. But deal. I mean it and I felt my first post here to be appropriately this.
My love note to you.
Much love, S.
