Today is the day. I have gathered some writers for an evening of wine, cheese and crackers, and words, in the salon where I work. It's happening. I can't believe it. I am moved by the amount of support I have in my life, and a lot of that support is from my clients. How can I thank them? How can I let them know that without them, I don't know where I would be? Their love and loyalty has helped to heal a broken soul. I have come out the other side, resilient, passionate, and a great deal more self-confident. Self-confident enough, that I will share my pages with them, and let them see what goes on this heart of mine. I will share my short comings, my thoughts about standing behind the chair, my feelings as I am doing so. I hope for their hearts to be touched by my story, to tap into the universal story.
What compels me to do these things. I'm not sure. But I do know it is what I am here to do. To create a salon has been one of my deepest desires for a very long time. And to realize my writing life does not have to be seperate from hair, seems the ultimate synthesesis. I don't have to run from hair to find myself.
Thank you to my loyal partner, friends, clients, coworkers, and SGI community.
