I Blog because I must...

Muse Deci helps me in times of decision making. She works through discernment methodically and with extra care. This is what I am doing this weekend.

Yesterday Nina Bagley posted "Every Cover has a Story" on her blog...she wrote about some of her readers who have been upset by some of her writings in her web journal...I was moved to respond:

i write because i must...our blogs are our journals...and they will lose their raw nakedness if we have to censor our feelings...your thoughts combine with mine and countless others to connect us deeply...unfathomably...in human family-like relationships...where we may like or dislike what you say...but we will always return for the connection...i do not have to agree with you to understand and care about you...keep writing just the way you do...you hurt no-one by saying your truth...i read because i must...

Today's aMUSEment - do you write what is on your mind on your blog or do you censor your thoughts to make them politically correct? think about something that really bothers you about our world today...write your thoughts or draw your thoughts... speak your truth...

U Be Creative Today!!

I have conflicted feelings about what I blog about. What I write is the truth, just not the *whole* truth I suppose. There isn't much depth to the personal chat. My life and my stories involve other people (natually) and out of respect to those people's privacy, I don't write those stories - their stories. I admittedly have privacy issues and sometimes I'm amazed that I blog at all.

I often rein things because my family reads my blog; perhaps, like a blogger whom I met recently does, I should get another one for deeper musings.

just visited the link of the blog. ofcourse there is this phenomanon that not all like to read confronting material and start to take it personal. that's okay as long as conflicts are avoided. it's an art to find a balance in life and sadly there are not that many artists to paint the portrait.

Rebecca - I visit Nina's world everyday - I LOVE this woman...and when I saw your comment on her blog I stood up, here in my little Blue Cottage and applauded you. Hope you heard me ;-)

I find my journals and altered books are great for getting things out, they can be incorporated into your backgrounds or just get lost in the scheme of things
