Years ago when I was growing up, I would try to read the newspaper. You remember those, right? Lifestyle stories always grabbed my interest, and in those days, there were two sisters who wrote columns that gained national syndication, “Ann Landers” and “Dear Abby.” After spending several months wondering where to go with my writing, I have decided to adopt a similar idea, where readers might want to ask a question, any question, and I would give my best, most heartfelt answer.
All my life I have been consumed with a need to know, a yearning for more understanding of the meaning of life and how I fit into it all. So long hours of reading, many books, listening to tapes, watching movies, learning and sifting through information that might be helpful in my quest, trying to understand ancient religions, hard to grasp philosophies, and reading the modern works of brilliant alternative doctors, progressive thinkers, and positive role models, has all led me here.
Many people blog in specific areas of expertise. Besides music, and homesteading, I have a limited grasp of physics, which has formed many of my journeys and ideas. I have also spent years studying human health and medicine, herbs and plants, and nutrition from experts in all parts of the world. It is entirely impossible to formulate accurate and helpful dialogue about anything unless the whole person and the whole picture is embraced. So, with all that said, my hope is that people will feel comfortable posing questions on my blog, giving me a chance to produce some answers, and other friends too, so that maybe here and there, someone will find solace, and a way to continue their own personal journey in more positive ways. A woman with no children must find ways to fulfill her need to nurture, and certainly in these highly uncertain days, anyone willing to listen and give good common sense ideas has value.
I have no idea where this will take me, but at least it is a start, a much better alternative than being crippled with writing paralysis common to me lately. There are so many talented writers, artists, photogs, and lovely people I have already met here on WordPress. It is not my intention to compete, but rather to compliment. My goal is to provide something interesting, personal, and on-topic with the issue of the day. Anything goes, and I look forward to a positive and stimulating reparte’ with you all.
When I post a topic, or a concern, an idea or a question, I look forward to all comments, but hope to make new friends in the future and continue to enjoy the amazing visionaries I already know and love. Please send me a question as a comment, and I will do my best to give some insight. In this day and time, we can find answers quickly and easily by simply doing a search. It is my hope that reading “Dear Cissy” will provide a more particular brand of personal introspection and insight based on almost 60 years of living experience in the modern world, with strong links to my heritage. My kind heart, my time and my real hope for peace in our world is yours for the asking. Thanks for reading so far, and let’s get busy answering some of these big, bad questions! Love, peace and joy to all! Cissy
