It’s been a while since I have written. Things have changed as they inevitably do. We are older, life is busier. I sit here on this blog, not sure if it will be read ever again and that’s OK. It’s like I have found an old friend and not quite sure if we will really stay in touch. Do we still have things in common or have we grown too far apart?
I never understood a blog or blogging. Blogging is a platform to share our thoughts with others, rrrriiight?? Do we write for others or ourselves? I never really know. Writing can be cathartic but do I really want others to read my thoughts? Then there is the argument of “well I must if I am writing them down so why not a blog?!”
It’s not like I start with “Dear Diary, Dear Journal or Dear Blog.” Would these introductions make it more personal, would that be a signal that my thoughts are for my eyes only? If you know me, you don’t have to know me well to understand I enjoy conversation (to say the least); healthy and interesting exchanges of words. I tend to be quick to ask questions and politely (I hope) make an argument for something I strongly believe or support. SO…why not share my writing if I am so quick to share my voice?
Well, here I am. I am back. Maybe I’ll write again tomorrow, maybe next week, but I am here to share. Read if you like, pass it up if you must. Here’s to old friends finding each other again.
