Amazing, Melony! You echo what a lot of people feel, but aren't brave enough to admit!

Jen - Thank you, thank you, thank you! You know the Bburgs are not typically known for "thinking outside the box", so it means that much more to me that you get it! I've always worried about disappointing Big Daddy, NaNa, Mike . . . but then I decided that the greatest disappointment would be miserable and NOT do anything about it . . . to disappoint MYSELF. I've been amazed by the positive support I've gotten from my colleagues and friends. I think there are even more lawyers out there than I ever dreamed that wish they *could* make such a leap. I'm very, very excited about my future now!

As for writing - until recently I had not really tried writing other than technical/legal writing. I knew I was pretty good at the fundamentals of writing - grammar, punctuation, etc. - but had never considered it otherwise. I've had several people encourage me to give writing a chance, and this blog is a way for me to explore the possibilities and get to know my own "voice".

Thanks again for all of your nice comments!!!
