Apparently the name Sally means “venture off the path”
A wordsmith friend of mine recently sent this to me. At first I felt rather immodest and not surprised at all. Venturing off for curiosity, individuality, and yes, adventure has always been me. But as I thought about all the angles of the meaning of venturing off the path I became disheartened. It is definitely me for good and for bad.
Venturing off the path can be healthy. To see things in a new light. Be open to new experiences. All terrific stuff. But, venturing off in an Attention Deficit Disorder kind of way with incomplete projects, half formulated plans, and new starts all follow me wherever I go.
Truth is this little note in my Inbox the other day got me to start my blog again after venturing away from it for the past month. The move to Portland has turned my world sideways. But with a writing class just around the corner and work piling up, I need to venture onto the path.
So much for my prideful moment at the old email. A good shake up is just what I needed.
What do you need?
