Yesterday’s blog entry was number 400 for “When EF Talks.”
I started this blog mainly because it seemed like the thing to do. I wasn’t working my way through a Julia Child’s cookbook, tracking weight loss, or chronicling each moment of my family’s life. I mainly just figured: “I like to write, blogs are popular, I should have one.”
It seems to have been a good choice.
Also, back in those days, I was very active email lists…*very* active. Used to post obsessively. It dawned on me that not everybody on those lists wanted to read my every thought.
Not everybody *ever* wants to read my *every* thought.
But I’m grateful for this blog, so that I get the chance to express my views when I can.
(During this year, my goal is to find something new to be thankful for every single day, and to add that thanksgiving as a blog entry, under the title “My Daily Gratitude.” I started this kick back around Thanksgiving, and it’s already resulted in a favorite new song of mine. The goal of this ongoing spiritual exercise is to see if doing such a thing might inspire even more gratitude within me, and to foster general awareness of life on a deeper level.)
