It’s not so much what we say but how we say it which defines us.
My name is Anna Moyer. When I meet a new person the first thing they ask me is where I am from. I generally look them straight in the eye and respond, “why do you ask?” At this point they are quick to point out my deep southern accent. “Yeah, well I hadn’t noticed it myself” I smile as I let the words out just a bit slower than usual.
My blog like my voice does not move with lighting fast speed, it meanders like the creek in the woods behind the house where I grew up. It started in 2012 as a project for a class on America Motherhood and when the class ended I just kept blogging. At first I added assignments from other classes then one day I choked back the fear of rejection and put a real piece of my heart out in front of the entire world; I have been holding my breath ever since.
I strive to be relatable and authentic both of which I believe are keys to good writing. When I start to feel as if my words are no more than ordinary blinks of some great cosmic eye, I read the words of fellow bloggers. The stories and pictures of a thousand dreamers, snowflakes in the sky, fragile beautiful creatures who like me hope somehow to remain when their season is past.
So, for all of you who live to cast your words out into the world, I salute you. For those who think they might give it a try…trust me…WordPress is not that hard…you can do it…I believe in you.

Here’s to keeping the world full of surprises and to helping turtles who cross the road.
