I started this blog, this website, purely to see if I could. It wasn’t really about the writing/publishing/conversation at that time, it was only about me. I’d already started jotting down my thoughts (for various reasons) and despite the rambling nature of them I did find that it helped. The process of vocalising and externalising your thoughts and emotions is a compelling reason to write.
It’s just the show off in me that continues to blog.
So why the sudden introspection? Well, as ever, that big thing called LIFE has given me cause to focus and ponder and consider. I’ve just had the sad news that my friend’s Dad has suddenly passed away. It brings back memories in a sudden rush, still painful and raw three years on, sharp edges that catch on my skin, dragging me open, emotions bubbling and bleeding out.
Such pain is personal and distinct, but one day at a time we will get past this to the next hurdle. Life always goes on.
I’ll be back in a bit.
