Why Did I Forget This Blog?
Must be for me, since this writing thing is going on for 35 years now.
It started, strangely enough, when someone stepped onto my professional turf, and a very primitive part of me said, my toy, find your own. I had landed what I thought would be an amazing opportunity, and another social worker heard about it and set up shop there, too.
So I went home and started to write a novel, learned that it is really, really hard to write novels. Over the years I've learned that it is also really really hard to write anything with a sustainable focus beyond a few pages, such as a blog, which is why we're here.
The interloper has since passed on, she's doing therapy in the sky, suffered much in her last few years, and naturally, she did write a book, and she published it.
It shames me, when I think about it, that I couldn't share the territory, that I didn't realize there will always be a need for more therapists in every town, in every location. Because you know, everyone really does need therapy.
