To be able to share with others the way that you feel is a very important gift I have received by having this site.
I try to be as honest as I can, on here, but you must remember, I still have to live my life with the people who read this blog, and i know there has been more than one occasion that I have been misquoted or misunderstood.
As a writer, you always face the spectre of upsetting someone who is close to you.
I have said inflammatory things about people and politics and have upset people. But getting upset isn't the end of the world. It means that someone has challenged your beliefs or standards and you have been forced to defend your honour or to capitulate to a differing point of view.
Either way, it is not the easiest thing to have your opinions challenged.
How we react to these disputes help to define how others see us. And how we see ourselves.
It has been very helpful for me to be able to write my thoughts, discoveries, things that enrage or engage me, my travels, tips and troubles.
Sometimes it is pictures, sometimes it is poems, other times it is an angry letter.
This page is my therapy for living in such a fucked up world.
Thanks for reading my disjointed but thoughtful thoughts.
I try to keep it entertaining.
Peace and here's to another 500 posts...
