Growth and Progress
Somewhere in the daily humdrum of life, I loose perspective, that sense of why I'm doing what I'm doing. This is a regular tendency for me, though it is one I try to resist.
The what and the why gets lost in the everyday doing. So, since I've been so out of touch with my blog and the on-line community, and I'd lost touch so much with what I had intended to write about even when I was writing regularly, I think it's time to get back to that.
For starters, I'll quote myself:
"Politics: a hazardous pastime for the mind. Parenting: a hazardous pastime for the heart. Other: a mix of hazardous pastimes for the body and soul. A life that isn't multi-faceted, like a fine jewel, isn't complete. A life that isn't complete won't be joyful and fulfilling. Complete your life and find the joy and fulfillment in the precious jewel that is yourself."
That is the purpose of my blog. To explore the complexity that is myself, and to hope that others might share some facet of themselves here on this blog. I readily admit it has happened. But, it is not as pervasive as I had originally intended. I had, myself, gotten so wrapped up in the "output" of my daily life, that I had forgotten the why behind the what.
I'm going to try to get back to that. And, I hope that I haven't been so negligent that my readership is gone beyond the horizon...out of reach. Perhaps this will interest them enough to bring about a word from them. Perhaps not. We shall see.
