If blogs were true diaries then it would all be about me/you....a chronology to be exact or a recreation of the daily "do do" list. To figure out if this blog is just that chronology, I re-read the last couple years yesterday...stem to stern, top to bottom, A-Z.
Readers see and read only half the story. What isn't shown, unless of course one is writing a "me me me" blog, is what prompts an entry. This blog goes in little series of themes and subjects. Earlier, during less stressful times, the threads were often short and really varied - certainly not developed thoughts or observations. Like any blog, over time, the entries get longer and therefore there are fewer of them. Putting what was going on in my life in one column and what I wrote about in the next - a giant excel spreadsheet with two columns - things make a lot of sense, at least to me
Besides, its father's day - a year ago my granddaughter and I were watching ballet sequences on YouTube (at precisely this moment in fact) and I had just finished listening to Venus from the Planets by the English composer Gustav Holst. That was a year ago this morning at nearly 8am. That entry makes a lot of sense in my two column history. Lots.
