>not an inspirational title but the thing I feel like talking about…

how interesting that blogging has been a MOST (big shout) important mechanism for me in the last few months.

I’ve kind of been into diarying but not as much as others. i love writing but get incapacitated by the GREAT novel ( so original norma/lou).

so why has this blog worked for me in a way that I never anticipated?????

because it’s real —- my need is real—–the listeners/readers/audience is real

how strange that the reader maketh the blog kinda thing…

writing my previous entry – the YES we got the diagnosis entry… was really important to me.

i’ve mentioned this to a few friends lately and it is clear that they don’t get it. Why on earth would writing such intimate details to the whole world be OK.

i don’t know the answer/I love the answer/

it’s very private…
it’s so public…

and so those fantastic ironies/contradictions work well for me – particularly now.

I’m a blogger/flogger of stories/logger of lives

and a gemini with libra rising so contradictions work and the photo of the day will be….

torture garden
torture garden
The universe appears to me like an immense, inexorable torture-garden…. Passions, greed, hatred, and lies; law, social institutions, justice, love, glory, heroism, and religion: these are its monstrous flowers and its hideous instruments of eternal human suffering.
Octave Mirbeau

someone save me…
