If you are a writer, or would be writer, you must read this post. I share it with you because I identify with it strongly. I identify with it because it eloquently states my reason for writing. In my case, I began this personal journey blog as a form of self-expression and without any illusions that I would attract the masses. I wanted a platform to write and nothing more. I hasten to add that I appreciate and am blessed by each person who honors me by following this blog. However, as a born and raised New Orleanian would say, that’s lagniappe (For those of you unfamiliar with the term, it means ‘an extra bonus.’). The bottom line is that I love to write, and if you do too, this post is for you.

  1. Dear Lydia,

    What a beautiful blog you have created! I am so intrigued by the concept of “seeking querencia” ~ I had never heard of this before, however, I have absolutely been on the journey wholeheartedly over the past year.

    Life is such a gift! Thank you so much for sharing your inspiring words to add richness to the journey.




    1. Dear Allison,

      Thank you for your kind comments about my blog. It is in the final stages of a redesign and I am quite happy with it. I could tell by your posts that you have been on a similar journey and ‘querencia’ describes it more beautifully than I ever could. May your journey be filled with peace, love and laughter. i look forward to your posts. Blessings, lydia
