In pursuit of a-ha moments...

The ramble...
A good story in a song, a standup routine, or a novel draws me in every time, but nonfiction is my favorite genre. Living in Japan, cut off from my native tongue in daily life, I resuscitated that long lost wanna be writer residing just below my heart space in fits and starts with blogging. The more I wrote, the more I realized I needed to learn. I felt like No-Face (Kaonashi), the insatiable character from Hayao Miyazaki’s animated film, Spirited Away, there wasn't enough of anything to satisfy my writing itch to capture insight or insightful moments on the page. Writing keeps my eyes sharp for details, prolongs the celebrations of joys, and gives insight into failures. I can only hope to get better through practice, effort, and ongoing development.

I seek story telling chops to get the a-ha moments on the page. I hope you'll keep reading, it encourages me.

The concise version
Kim Jordan is a fifth generation hillbilly from Appalachia with five degrees, none of which are in storytelling, but she writes the blog, Consider the Thought in pursuit of a-ha moments anyway. Kim likes beer with cake, long walks, and time at home with all her loves- one honey bunny, two munsters, and a couple of ratties. The thoughts recorded here are all her own.

Many thanks for stopping by,
Kim
