I started this blog because I was concerned about some of the things that were happening to my mind and body as I got older. It’s always been helpful for me to write things down when they bother me, or when I need to work through things out. But what’s happening here is that the blog has become a sort of daiy diary, occasionally interspersed with some serious thought. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that; it’s kind of fun to sort through all the stuff that goes on in a day to see what matters enough to record. The problem is that when I did get into some of the things that were bothering me about the aging process, I found that others didn’t take me all that seriously. I didn’t need to hear that “everyone goes through this” or “you should hear what I did yesterday.” My experiences sometimes threaten my sense of who I am, and that can be scary. So, for the most part, I stopped doing that kind of blogging here. Instead, I started another blog, a sort of private journal. I think blogging is kind of addictive, so it suits my personality quite well. Maybe some day I will publish the other blog as well.
The second thing is that I seem to have acquired some sort of tummy bug so I’m leaving now. Be nice to each other.
