Have you ever awakened in the middle of the night with thoughts that pressed upon your mind shouting to be written down? Have you ever had poetry flowing through your mind when you had your hands full doing something else, so you could not write it down? Does writing soothe your troubled mind and calm your soul? If it does, and if you have, then you can relate.
Writing is a passion for me. It is like a relief valve, and without it I am sure that I would burst.

The worst punishment my mother ever inflicted on me, as a child, was the one of silence. My speech may not be eloquent, but communication is such a vital element of life, that I wonder what I would do, if it was taken from me.

God bless my mother. She means the world to me, and she has been stricken with a stroke, which left her unable to talk. Mother and I have had some of the most meaningful conversations, and now they are limited to her ability to write short notes, and my ability to decipher the meanings.

This is another reason for the relentless passion I have in writing. I want to keep my mind keen. I research health issues, and write on them at under the name Judy Sheldon.
It is imperative to do everything in one's power to preserve health, and I offer many good tips there, as do many of my fellow writers there.

Secondly, researching information and presenting it for publication keeps the mind sharp. We are aware of the phrase "Use it or lose it". I do not want to lose my ability to learn, comprehend, communicate, retain facts, or present them. Triond offers a good avenue for this venture. Join us there, and I guarantee a learning experience. Stop back often. I look forward to your visits.

Hey, Judy, it's your bud Jason from Triond. Cool blog. I like what you wrote; I relate to it some, too. You gave me the inspiration to start my own blog, thanks. C-ya

that's a cool pic of you and the cow, by the way. I'm serious; it's cool.

Jason, my youngest son took that picture of me at the fair. I had that big silly grin because the cow had just given me a big kiss on the cheek. He (my baby boy) was only about three or four at the time. We always had to spend time with the animals at the fair. He loved them, and as you can see, I kind of do too.
Thanks so much for the compliment, and visiting me here. you must tell me how to find you.

I share the same feelings about writing as you.

Sometimes, verses just come pouring in my mind and I must get them out and down.

Icy, it is nice to know those feelings are shared with someone else. It makes me feel that I am not so different after all. Thanks for visiting. Remember, my door is always open. Take care, and come again.

JUDY, you are so right about research. It does sharpen the mind and open up things to you that you would've not otherwise bothered to learn.

Judy Sheldon-Walker February 15, 2008 at 10:35 PM
