Everything, and All at Once

I am one of the nomad-bloggers migrating here from Xanga. Its fundraising campaign to prevent its impending demise triggered the realization that even if Xanga is still around as a paid blogging platform after the 15th of this month, my time there had come. It was time for me to move on. The sense was strong: I was ready for a fresh start, a new incarnation that would reflect the person I am now — a dynamic shift from the person I was over seven years ago, when I started blogging.

I had a list of potential new handles picked out, but the name for this came to me as I was thinking about journaling about my experiences this summer: I am everything, and all at once. My interests are broad, the activities that make up my days motley. This is the source of many of my struggles, since my time and resources are finite, since I have a love-hate relationship with boundaries, since I can’t seem to specialize the way people who become really great at something do, since the possibilities for my life are expansive and this sense of breadth does nothing to help me decide which to pursue…. Yet, this is also the source of my power. I am very resilient. I am really good at many things. I am interested, observant. I have things to say.

I wasn’t quite sure about that last thing; I wasn’t quite sure whether I would start blogging anew or just let this part of my life lapse into oblivion. For now, it remains.
