The Day A New Wind Came Remastered

When the Original Bunker Punks asked me to look back at my beginning, a grab bag of emotions swelled inside my heart. It had been over a year and a half since I read those words. Reading them took me back to a moment in time.

I remember talking to my husband, “I want to start a blog. A place I can write words I want to write.” I spent the next day trying to think of a name. As I was blow drying my hair, I looked at our DVD shelf and there was my answer.

blog 9-24I adore ‘The Misfits’ for several reasons. It was written by Marilyn Monroe’s third husband, Arthur Miller, and it starred Clark Gable. There is a scene in the movie where Marilyn’s character goes out and screams her head off. I relate, in so many ways, to wanting to stand in a field and roar at this crazy world.

As I stared at the movie case, I knew I had my name. The Misfits.

It was a given to be a Mountain Mama, because these old mountains are my home. I’ve taken a bit of ribbing from my writing friends for not actually living on a mountain. No, I don’t live in a log house on top of a mountain.

With a name for my blog, I first went to Google to ensure no one had my blog name. So with my name secure, I went to a website and started a free blog. I picked a layout that made me happy to look at and went to writing. There I wrote my first words, “The Day a New Wind Came.”

I didn’t know this journey would take me so far and bring me such happiness. I only wanted to write again.

Today, I give you my first words enhanced, remastered, and raw.
