NaBloPoMo has begun.  That’s National Blog Post Month, a spin-off from NaNoWriMo,  National Book Writing Month.  Why November?  Don’t know.  What does it mean?  Blogging every day.  Since I haven’t even blogged weekly for more than a year – and what a year – that’s a challenge.

But I want to get back to the blog here; use this as a way to move forward with this piece of writing (essay or book?) about the personal, political and social roots of shame re: body size.  Working title has been “De-constructing Shame:  It is Not Too Late”.  Musings (to borrow a word from my blogging friend Em-i-lis) of a 60+ woman of size who believes that shedding shame is essential to enjoying the remainder of my life.

Don’t even know if I have a word count goal for these daily posts; just being sure to do them is challenge enough.  So, when I click ‘Publish’, I shall have made a public commitment, not just to blog, but to move forward with this writing, processing, de-constructing and re-constructing project.  Here goes…

PS:  Backyard maple tree is vibrating-ly aglow with late afternoon sun on the golden leaves.  Against a crisp blue evening sky.  Omen-esque.
