I didn’t post yesterday. I tried to. I opened the window, started to type, and it just wasn’t there. I couldn’t think of the right topic, so I just… didn’t write. It felt like it would be inauthentic to pull something out of my ass. Instead I read some other people’s blogs, and found a lot of joy and comfort in doing so.
The internet is such a fantastic resource, for many reasons, one of which being that it gives you the opportunity to connect with people you otherwise would not be able to. Something as easy as entering a couple of keywords gives you a perspective you haven’t yet seen. I love that blogs have given voice to people, and that there is a record of the thoughts they’ve had. Barring a huge disaster, these blogs will live on for a while, and that’s a little comforting.
I encourage you to do some searching around for topics and interests you might not have looked into before, and to expose yourself to as many points of view as you possibly can. It can only help to better serve the world, and our ability to relate to those in it. Have a lovely Memorial Day!
