I wanted to stop blogging because I thought that in using this format as a personal journal, which I do, I'm only catering to my ego. But honestly, life itself has me catering to, and flirting with, my ego - that's the Way of it. My separate identity is going to be asserting itself no matter what I do - until it doesn't - so why not continue writing (or doing anything!) while I enjoy it? I'll do what I can do to cultivate Presence - but I can still be at peace with the shenanigans along the way. The shenanigans are where I'm at.
My blog ideas, my readers, my inspirations and fears that I like to dance with - these are my friends.
I felt kind of dumb because I sent emails to a few people telling them that I'd posted my last entry, and thanked them for reading. I felt dumb because it was just a week ago that I said "goodbye."
"But c'mon, these are my friends - what's the big deal?" I asked myself.
And then I saw there was none.
I said goodbye - and now I say hello, again!
