Tabor has been asking what the 3 weeks is about. If you remember, way back at the end of October I explained that I had been getting very lazy about making blog posts. It seemed as if there was nothing worth writing about any more. I went for a month at a time without attempting to blog. A friend suggested that a remedy, and a way of working out what I wanted to do with my blog, was to write something every day for 3 weeks. To write anything, no matter how trivial or trite-seeming……. that way I might write myself into a position where I understood what I was doing. I get there at the end of this week.
So………. what am I doing and why? Well – from the beginning I have written around 2550 posts. Lots of people mention the blog to me which reflects the fact that originally I thought of it as a way of building a community. This was when I was working in Parish Ministry. But of course things are different now. and although I cannot tell, I expect my stats have fallen off a great deal in my shilly-shallying this past year. However, this blog is not about trying to have as many readers as possible. It is more about leaving some kind of legacy for my descendants. Though I’m not sure if that is feasible.
The main point is that my daily doings and thoughts, ordinary though they may be, do give me material to share. And maybe it is helpful for me to do that. After all, as we get older it is good to make sense of life from long ago and life now. I would be interested to hear what you think.
