Who Am I? And Why Am I Here?


Hello World. This is Victoria from Cleveland, OH kicking off my blog, Ephemerality.

I’m like a lot of people I know. I like my work but feel underappreciated. I care about our planet and the animals. I have a love / hate relationship with politics. I love my parents, my siblings and their kids, and try to do right by them. I like to think I have an innate sense of right and wrong and consider myself a good person.

I love music – I used to write and perform it. It took a long time before I could refer to myself as a “songwriter” or a “musician.” Those monikers resonated and I so badly wanted to stay with them. But eventually that shifted and I felt myself drifting away from that world. I was tired and felt defeated. Yet I had sense of self when I wrote. I felt connected.

And that is why I am here. To connect with you, dear reader. To reconnect with myself.



hello and an introduction

Hi there. When it comes to the world of blogging, I am new, new, new. But I have a need to pry open a creative outlet and thought I would give this a try. To be honest, I am hoping this will jump start some aspect of writing – practice makes perfect and all that.

And what could possibly be more fun than writing about my interests (and hopefully yours, too): Music, nostalgia, photography and gardening. We can share stories through these dark months of Winter. So let us begin and see where our journey takes us.
