My 100th Post

When I started this blog, I never thought I would make it to my 100th post, especially within only a few months, but here it is. I also never thought, when I started this blog, that it would veer so far away from what I originally wanted it to be.

I had a great talk with Jess Ralph the other day (it was also a comforting talk, since she called right after I found out that Spazzy had passed) and she spoke to me about my need to be creative. She commented on the fact that she had hoped my blog would be more than just a way to stay in touch with family and friends while I traveled. However, it quickly (and understandably) became that way while I was on the road. Which is fine, and I love what I have done here, but at the same time I know I have more to offer.

For example, whenever I start to talk about philosophy or existential concepts or even my personal ponderings, I always apologize for what I’m about to say. Assuming that people will either think me crazy, or be bored with my ramblings. However, as Jess pointed out to me, that is exactly the stuff the she thinks I should be sharing. In fact, she was incredibly kind about it, and even said that something about my “wonderful thoughts” being put to the page – those feelings and thoughts I always have, and yet never grasp tightly enough to truly make concrete.

So in that light, I will be creating a new wordpress blog (currently not present), in which I will offer no apologies, and write from my soul rather than my just my fingers. And perhaps this will lead to memoirs and essays worthy of something more than just a blog, and I will finally start to put together the book that is begging to be written.

Thank you for taking this journey with me these past few months. It has been unbelievable, and utterly life-changing. I will continue to use this blog for my meanderings and my travels. For I hope to never cease traveling this world.
