As mentioned, I keep been noticing lately how little I post on my bloggity blog anymore. I was telling a friend tonight that suddenly the concept of "anyone in the world can read this" has confronted me. I just realized right this very very second that there is someone in particular that I don't want to stumble upon this. Ever. And that one person is someone I want to write about. At length. Not about this person but about me and what I experience with this person. Could I be any more vague??
People have suggested that I could password protect the site, create a new site, etc. Truly when I started this blog it was such a buzz, so much fun. I could share & write about my life, in the privacy of my own home, and use creative colors & fonts and just gush gush... and need I say, pictures pictures & more pictures (of food!). And the more I shared it with people at large, the more fun it was for me. I have certainly had "readers" say they feel a little bit like a stalker in the sense that they really don't talk to me that often at all but they do peek in on my life & love to hear how I'm doing, but reading along with all my dark & deepest secrets is different than getting together once a year over a latte, ya know?
Part of the excitement of this blog for me was redesigning & playing with colors all the the time, a bad bad manic little habit of mine which drove one very talented artist friend of mine nuts (won't name names here but recently she outed my lazy ass that I DRIVE to the trailhead that is less than a 10 minute walk from my house). Anyway, I'm excited because Denise, a super warm-hearted candle-dancing artist (btw check out her online store, it's amazing) is designing a new masthead for me . I love it. Now I just have to come up with a picture of me. It suddenly occurred to me to pull a pic from Anginet's Wonder Woman photoshoot with me. There was one she did that she turned into a cartoonish B&W. Have to dig that out.
The one thing I don't want to do is go have one of those mysterious silences, an existential blog identity crisis.
So. I stay. And write. And share and be me and be honest. Happy almost Thanksgiving! I am grateful. For everything. And you!
