Paper

I have recently been feeling constrained in my blog. I want to write about stuff way deeper than field trips with the kids and Holidays. This is just not the place. There is just stuff I don't want in the air.
I have been thinking about real paper and long sweeping strokes of a pen. Of course I don't write beautifully but I have a need to write. I am vaguely remembering I used to like to write in school.
This isn't short stories or poems but more like the idea of emptying the emotional tanks.  The first day ended up being 6 pages of writing. Um, yeah I know that is weird. Today I started again although I don't know where I could come up with more to write.
I hate to say it is a resolution but more like a goal for 2012 to write more. I am thinking I might start to add more cards into my life as well. I used to have a card box so I could drop a note whenever I needed to but most of them have been used and I let the kids use the remaining cards for projects.
I think you should join me. Send me a note and I will send one too. Wouldn't it be cool to back away from the instant messages that we are all so addicted to? I am not sure I can do it myself.
