As I sit here and try to think of a clever Mission Statement, Statement of Purpose or Grand Master Plan for this ErinTerese site, my mind draws a blank. I would love to tell you that I have a clear plan. Oh crap, who am I kidding? I’d love to tell me I have a clear plan! The plain and simple truth is that there is no Master Plan. No finite Mission Statement for my intent. But I have a longing in my soul. An energy and drive that pulses from the tips of my toes, through my fingers, circling around my eyes and ears and flowing through my mind.
I feel the desire to share my thoughts and feelings with you, my reader. Even though I don’t know who you are yet, I want to know you. I want to hear your stories and learn from you. I want you to hear my stories and tell me what you’ve learned. Life, for me, is all about stories. Life stories. Stories from your childhood. Stories from yesterday. Stories you’d like to write for yourself. Hearing other people speak, reading other people’s words and watching people from afar, is what gives me passion and purpose. I know myself better, when I know others better. I understand the world more clearly, when I understand others more clearly. The more I can relate to you, dear reader, the more I can relate to the world and the closer I am to finding “it” – whatever “it” may be.
I have no idea where this journey will take me… Where this journey will take us. But please come with me. I would like you to read my work and comment, share and give me your feedback. Send me your favorite blogs, links and videos. Let’s go on this journey together and try and find the “it” we have been looking for – assuming you haven’t found “it” yet. If you have, that is awesome! Please share.
