I’m back, For now.
I’ve been away a long time. Too long. So many thoughts, blurry and half-formed, swirling around my brain. I haven’t been able to prompt them to come out through my fingers onto the keyboard. Sometimes I catch a glimpse. I’ve sat down – who knows how many times – and started to write a blog post that became a flood of words, pouring out onto the screen in a volume nobody could bear to wade through . . . including me.
I’ve been going back to basics. What does it all mean? What do I mean? Why am I here?
Who am I?
It doesn’t get much more basic than that. And it is these questions that draw me toward some hope of actually finding an answer. I’ve chopped up what I can pull together of that answer intoÂ several blog posts, which I’ll plug in here over the next several days, one at a time, so as to be somewhat less . . . overwhelming – both to you and to me.
The purpose of this series is to outline – both for you, but more immediately for myself – my worldview. I hope that this will allow each of you reading to get to know me a little better. I hope it will allow me to get to know myself a little better. It has been a long time in the making, and has involved a lot of thinking – and more than a little re-thinking – of things I thought I believed . . things I thought I knew.
Tomorrow, I begin to share what has, for me, begun to answer some questions. Tomorrow I begin to share my Self with you.
Enjoy the ride, or don’t. That is your choice. I hope you do . . . I invite you to join me in this journey. But if you choose otherwise – if EVERYBODY chooses otherwise, I still have an audience of one. I must write, even if I write for myself, and myself alone.
It is enough.
