Blogging

Last year I started this blog with every intention of posting something interesting or helpful every so often. As you can see, that has not worked out as I hoped.

It was difficult to make time to blog when I wasn’t sure it would be worth it. There are millions of other blogs out there–what could I say that would contribute to the world more than others?

Why do we think that other people give a rip what we do from day to day? It strikes me as a reflection of our arrogance as a society. There is a tension between our disconnection from our history and the desire to be remembered in history. We just want someone, somewhere, at some time in the future, to know and care that we existed.

Yet all the voices drown each other out, and our collective noise is something like the eerie sound of thousands of maggots feasting.
