I of HI:

Since Heath wrote the Welcome statement on my behalf (RUDE! and whatever I do not say Canonball!)...

The Why
It's all about me, really :)  I'm looking for bigger things - bigger than routine, comfort, security.  I want to zoom out from the small view - the tiny, destructive details and stresses that truly should not matter, and that make me feel small.  I want to break out of my teeny little heart and make it huge - so that it can become all about me and the world:) 
 
Comfort
I'm trading up external comfort for the emotional kind - the internal comfort that comes from knowing myself and my loves and my limits.  I can find out who I am outside of the definition that comes with a job, a relationship (that's right! And no I am not dumping Heath!) and a heavily material culture.  I want the comfort of self-reliance and self-celebration - it's going to be a party in my heart! (and my pants, but that's a given, BA BOOM!)  Oh and I would like to learn the appropriate use of humor (as in not as a distraction for the personal stuff that makes me feel uncomfortable:)
 
De-Sponge and Get Sloppy
I have Spongelike tendencies - I soak in other people's thoughts, and loves, and opinions, and largely keep my own as quietly my own, and summarily vague at best, until I feel like I can form the Perfect thought, the polished response, and a somewhat profound opinion!  I have moved out of the Perfection as a paralyzer stage, and now I want to move into Perfection Out the Window stage.  I'm going to get sloppy and like it!  Especially with my writing - I hope to shed my English major voice and find an smooth, simple flow from my heart to the keyboard!  For example, what does Summarily even mean?  Thank you.
 
Oh and I guess I want to have some fun with Heath!  But that's a given:)
 
And with that, I'm peace out
 
Love,
Ings

Freddy Nietzsche says . . .
something like this: 'one must have chaos in onesself in order to give birth to a dancing star.' I don't know where he says this, but have it on a refrigerator magnet. Anyway, Ingrid's comments on travelling and writing made me think of this line--I envision y'all leaving the structure and confines of 'normal' life and entering a state of constant flux, flux that brings change, self-discovery, and DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION! Embracing the chaos: that's LIVIN'! And saying f**ck you to your inner censor and exploring your thoughts on the page: that's WRITIN'!
Rock on, MMK
