Hello world!

This blog is for venting but not just that; it’s an attempt to say “I am” in a world more and more disconnected. Sure we have social media, but it’s all superficial-my-life-is-wonderful-isn’t-great- stuff, and while we share positive information, often the more real pain of living is missing and therefore we are not connecting on a very basic human level that yearns for understanding, acceptance and compassion.

What I hope to do with this blog is express in creative ways–yes, more or less socially acceptable-the emotions that we keep bottled up for fear of being hurt, despised, insulted, crushed, you name it. However, I still want to make some space and opportunity for expressions regarding our very human condition, the fragility and strength of it, the unfairness as well as the beauty of it.

I have named this blog “unbuttoned or undone” because I want it to be honest, the kind of honesty we are born with and die in. No lies, no tricks. We are sharing our losses and our victories and I hope, I really do, that doing it with grace, we can be better human beings.

I used to cry and scream in my pillow when I was a child, because a crying tizzy-fit was not acceptable. Perhaps if we all had someone listening and just saying “I know it’s hard, and you are brave to voice this. I can’t take the hurt away, but I will listen”, may be, just may be, we will live better together.

So here I go.

    I’ve come back to the beginning and I see a forest of posts before me. I think I’ll swing through them like an orangutan.
