I’ve been reading lately about how to make this blog a better place to visit.
My first thought, long ago, was to tell my personal story, then use it to help some to crawl out of the pit that they, or someone else, dug for them.
I have for many years, off and on, written random and not so random things in journals. I’ve kept them all, even shared bits and pieces of them, in an attempt to help others.
From there I went on to showing people the value of some quiet in their life, and hopefully, helping them to create some for their own.
Next came the photographs that I so love to take.
Some have been made into my little films, calendars, puzzles and coffee table books.
Now I’m even thinking of, gulp, my religious and political leanings.
I must say, I hate confrontation of any kind. (Confrontation there would most likely be!)
The prolonged temper tantrum I see all around makes me angry, and quite frankly, sick to my stomach. This is not to mention that it intimidates me a lot.
What do I do?
What would You do?
What would you like to see here?
What would make you want to come back?
I’ve been a blogger off and on since 2008. I’m still not happy with where I am, but I am also not compelled to quit.
All the years of processing cannot be for nothing. Can I ask? Where have your processes taken you? Would you care to share in the comments?
There. It’s out there. My fears. My questions.
Do I pick just one topic, hope for the best, and stay comfy and safe?
Can comfy and safe really change the world?
Let me pick one and start there: and I suppose for me that is the answer. Pick one and begin. I love your quietude experience. We may each take it in a slightly different direction and it is valid and valuable. I have had many “lifetimetv movie” experiences. Sometimes they feel overwhelming and I get frustrated by the totality yet validated when I look at them separately. Part of the reason for the book I am almost done with is to make positive meaning from something that was difficult. People don’t seem to get it… don’t seem to get it.

Thanks for your honest, encouraging words. I enjoy figuring out this kind of stuff, but find it more enjoyable to have people join in. Like you, I trust the process. I daresay I even enjoy it. 💜
