You read the title right. My mom now knows that I have a blog and she’s probably reading it right now lol.
Yes, the blog has been in existence for a little while now and she should have known about it sooner, but she didn’t. And I’m cool with that. I’ve always had this thing about not sharing any new projects with my mother for no other reason than her opinion means a lot more than I’d like to admit and I’m sensitive about my shit. So, anything as close and personal to me like an online journal that the world can see (lol) falls into the above mentioned category because my mother and I share one very important trait: brutal honesty at sometimes inopportune moments. Sometimes it’s hard to take or even prepare for unabashed honesty when it comes to something that you feel is your calling and your decisions don’t make sense to the people outside of yourself.
But it’s cool. Turns out, she’s the last person on the list of people who really needs a reintroduction to me (of sorts…I know I know…she’s my mother and she knows everything, but you know what I mean).
I won’t go any further than that except to say, “Prepare yourself Ma. It gets real in these Shy Peacock streets.”
It might take her few visits to get to this post due to her ever growing (limited) knowledge of computers and the net, but I’ll say, “Hey Ma! Welcome to the side of your daughter that you might have been avoiding all this time. Love you :)”
