Welcome to my digital writing journal, or mydigitalclutter. What started as a family blog almost two years ago has morphed into my writing therapy. This is where I do a lot of free writing, mostly about my life with my family and the things that catch my interest. While nowhere even close to perfect, in each post I like to see how my writing is changing with time and practice. Most posts are left unedited for this reason, so if you don't mind, take the journey with me.

Walking the aisles, it hummed with activity. Families, couples, and singles wandered the racks and shelves, putting easily packaged food into baskets. It was so amazing, that I had to stop for a moment to take it all in. My own cart soon began to fill with a package here and there, the makings of my "famous" chicken enchiladas, and I couldn't help but feel so grateful for the ease of it all.
Around the end-caps, people congregated and chatted, hailing one another like long lost family. A few people stood at the adult beverage aisle, their children running around in circles. I had to laugh internally, because it seemed so ironic that they would be standing there.
It isn't my favorite place to be, but I am still so grateful that we are able to peruse the aisle and pick whatever we desire for dinner in the very moment we want it. Not that I wouldn't mind eating from the garden all the time, but to have a place, so very close, to let me purchase what I need, when I need it.
