I’m on a quest. Or two quests.
Simply put, I want to better understand (1) the world and (2) my place in it.
Blogging, I realized, is the best way to do that. It forces me to write regularly, which is always a good thing. Writing helps me organize my thoughts and bring them into focus. Writing is also a productive act, letting me create something new out of my various experiences instead of passively internalizing them.
Finally, publishing what I write online means I’m sharing my thoughts with other people. There is interaction, synergy – and that always leads to something interesting. Plus it keeps me from turning into a lonely old crone who spends all her days huddled up reading in the dark corners of the library.
So I’m back to blogging, about a year later than I’d anticipated. But better late than never!
