This is an attempt to get something flowing by dislodging a few things…..
It’s been a bit since I’ve written. Not that I haven’t been thinking, but I wonder…
What is the point …..?
Who listens? Why discuss? Why care?
I don’t wanna be the blogger that writes about pointless dribble. But then what is pointless to you, may have great meaning to me (and vias versa)
My daughter had an amazing quinceñeara – my son is loving college and is starting spring football – and my other son is about to be the become a dad start his own business and he will be great at it both!
I’ve got many thoughts on these things, as well as the conflicts and transitions in my life; and yet I hesitate to write. Lazy? apathetic? I don’t think so.
I’m trying to figure out WHAT? Matters.
Does it matter for me to pour out my thoughts to have someone say “nice piece ” (hear the golf applause?).
Or why write just to have the guardians of orthodoxy blast me with a fire-hose of their socio-religious doctrines, and not listen seriously to a counter point that may disrupt their world of wonderland?
Do I write to persuade and inform, or maybe just to vent and process it? And then there are issues I want to process in public, yet because of the dignity of those involved, can’t.
What is the point?
If blogging is a way to extend physical community, not replace it of be a substitute for it, then we can grow and learn together, (I do need you!).
If blogging is a from of self-congratulations and narcissism? I’d be better off with a good mirror and trip to Southdale.
