Brahms Symphony No 3 is just an ideal piece of music to listen to when contemplating such matters. Press play and have a muse over your morning coffee.....
Over the last couple of months blogger has gone out of it's way to make blogging just that little more difficult for all of us.
I don't know if it is just this,or a sort of amalgamation of other factors, but I think we have all seen various favourite "onliners" saying goodbye to their online diaries in order to re join their real world pastimes..
As many of us have plodded on, they have, with a word or two of explanation, hung up their webpages and left them hanging on the web, like gravestones in a graveyard
Blogging, I have always thought, has that potential for fulfilling the need of someone who embarks in a conversation with a stranger on the train.
It can be psychotherapy , where emotional, psychological and social comment can be regurgitated safely away, shared and discussed with a potential group of despots from all over the globe.
It also can be a way of relaxing the downtime hours;of sharing a life, an interest, an enjoyment in writing or design within a medium which perhaps has that simple ability to underline the fact that "we are here!- we are not invisible!- we have something to share...we have something to say."
