Thursday Morning Rambling
Most of my posts lately have just been images and quotes, not a lot of self reflection for the internet to read. This is in part the result of my Mac deciding that it will not turn on and partly because I have been too busy with my life to post about it.
A friend of mine commented the other day that he didn't really get what my blog was about. Here it is: it is about nothing and everything, it is about the beauty I find all over the place and celebrating the healing process, and birdcages and ships and whatever strikes me as interesting in a day, week, or moment.
To be honest with my crazy schedule I miss posting about my Sundays in the park and running around all day on Saturdays. I like thinking about my day each day and asking myself what I am learning and attempting to formulate something meaningful to post here. I also like how into this little thing I am. I mean really how is this any different than my face book or twitter? I have no idea. I think I like that I have more than 140 characters, and people who come to this page do it on purpose. I like that I only have 22 followers (instead of my over 800 friends). I like that I can pretend this is small and no one really reads it, but I also love when I get a comment, so I know that someone does. I find it shocking when my blog comes up in conversation with someone that I never figured would read it. I love it when guys read it, because I feel like it is very much written assuming my audience is female. I like it when I get the focus and time to post about the books I am reading with more than just a few short sentences. I love it when my posts result in responses that make me think even more about what it was that I was already pondering. I also really like just posting pictures.
When I started this thing almost 3 years ago I posted a photo of a heart that I had seen spray painted on Mission Street to represent this little thing. The anatomically correct heart sums this little blogspot up: this is just my heart on the internet, honest and exposed.
If you read me let know. I would like this thing to be a bit more of a conversation.
