Intro to Joy (or Joy Is In It...)
I love to write. I've written personal travel journals; daily thoughts to my grandson; and letters to pen pals, childhood friends and family members. Over the last couple of years I even started writing some prayers.
Writing for me is a way of keeping in touch with loved ones. It keeps our conversations going. It records something that I know will soon be forgotten. It also relaxes me. One other great aspect of writing to others is the anticipation of their response.
Unlike some celebrities who produced a book of their letters or thoughts, I'm pretty certain my recorded thoughts or correspondence of the past have never been retained by anyone. That's OK. That's not important to me. I'm not selling anything. I don't want a million readers. I just want to share what is on my mind with my family and friends.
This is my first blog. I plan on writing here about the things that make me happy. My middle name is Joy (thus the name for this blog) and I'll be writing more later.
