a long time ago, in a mountain community far away, I started this simple, complex, unique blog with little intention of supervising my own rambling thoughts. in that day there were more kindred spirits here, and there was more of a feeling of home. it was a place of expression, it was a place of hope. somewhere between then and now, the hope has faded, and there is no sense of community anymore…something has died.
it is too easy to click the like button and move on
never reading a thought
never a word entering the heart
so, what good is a blog site where people do not read, nor internalize, anything written by the author?
I did not start writing to share teen angst, socialist thought, or an inner dialogue of self-hatred, like the garbage I began seeing accumulate like a garbage barge afloat in a sea of plastic lives. no, I started writing to share life, to support life, and to celebrate life.
so, to those who still inhabit this sphere with a passion for expressing reality, for supporting truth over delusion, for standing for the freedom of expression, but with more of a love and tenderness in my heart…I am back.
