This “blog anniversary” is about the now. The back links to the original “Hello World” has the history of how I got here. Plus the tributes to those who inspired me along the way. The future, as always is a fog.
What’s “real” is the continuing need to write what the voices in the head tell me. Along with it the eternal hustle to find moments to type it out. Then grind down the incoherent sentences into an edifice of thoughts. I find it easier to do it than ever before. The fact that I enjoy reading it still a pleasant shock.
These days, the voices are veering towards the philosophical. I don’t like spewing abstractions. So I am fighting to tether the generalisations into banal horrors of the real world. I’m up for this challenge; even if it is taking long to peck out. The goal is getting the thoughts out my head, not perfection.
I don’t miss the easy wading through topical fluff as in the old days. It was fun. But that was then. Now the goal is pecking out one post at a time till I’m no more or physically incapable.
Until then, onward. Even at one or two posts a month this blog is alive. So thank you for reading.
