I am not a writer. I write my journal. It's nothing great, just some history for my kids to have in case they ever want to know who and what I was or where I came from or where they came from or maybe they may want to know what I remember about my parents.
The problem is my life is dull and was dull and will probably be dull until the day I die. I am just like everyone else. I am not a hero. I have never performed a heroic deed. I have never done anything to become famous. I have never committed a dastardly deed or heinous crime.
However I do have a few stories, same funny and some sad.
While learning to journal I discovered that I like to write stories. Some stories I write are based on truth with a little bit of the old "Artists prerogative " thrown in. Some of the stories I write are completely fiction. I like fiction the best because I can create anything, any place and any body and make my creation move at any pace I want to.
I do not create false truths about myself. I am not a yam like Popeye but my life is what it is. I was raised in Utah by good honest working parents. I was baptised Mormon but I do not follow the dogma as preached.
I believe in God and accept Jesus Christ as my savior but I have a difficult time categorizing one religion as better than the rest. I categorize people. They are either good or they're not good. I don't accept the black and white of religion. I believe in the gray and I let God do the judging.
I believe God is intelligent and therefore logical. I do not believe he will save me because I am a Mormon, or a Baptist or a Catholic or any other of the many religions that populate our world.
I believe I will be "saved" or "damned" for what I do and do not do.
I refuse to judge others by the color of their skin, their religion or the amount of money they have. I just try to accept people for what they are.
I ramble a lot with my thoughts and my writing. But rambling is okay because while I am rambling I am also writing. So after all maybe I am a writer.
Hope I get discovered before I die.
