That’s about as deep this blog will ever get. It is written to stop the sentences flying around in my head from driving me insane. The process starts with a word, a phrase, a realisation about a situation, an overheard remark. Then it build and builds into an avalanche of ideas. Loosening words into sentences that start fires of ideas. Soon it’s a burning babble of voices in my head. They are easily swept away and brutally insistent.
The only way to make it stop is to write it down. My reward: a thin slice of mental peace. Then it starts again. That is what powers my blogging.
It is slavery. It is how I experience the mysterious push to write. A sensation close to what drives a diarrhoea sufferer to the latrine. Blogging provides a convenient satisfaction for this urge. Thus this blog is my mental latrine trench. Where digested experience of life get deposited in words. Like any good slave, I have conformed to the will of my masters. After doing this since 2007 I even got around to enjoy reading the peculiar stench of my own writing. Not bad no?
