So amiss at writing...

I have been terrible about keeping up this blog since I discovered Facebook. Good grief. Now I get all these ridiculous requests for an egg in someone's basket, to tend their farm, discover my chakra color, send someone in the Mafia a new gun and it goes on and on. I have failed the Myers-Briggs so I guess I am without personality. My writing skills have gone down the tubes trying to text my pre-teen grandaughter on her phone. I try to do better but get seduced to join the American Red Cross or Artists United or some poetry group. And then when I do get to my blog, nobody has commented so I think that no one is reading so why should I bother when there is Facebook where it seems that if I sneeze, I get blessed by many. Hmmmmm......

What a great description of how Facebook sucks the art out of life. I've been trying to get off facebook more and into life more myself. And blogging. Blogging seems to be okay, there is art in it and life. Not so much bullshit as mafia wars and growing cyber farms. But it is fun. Besides, you've done amazing work this year with your writing. Which means you really shouldn't be taking a break. You're on that roll you've been meaning to get on. Get back on there and roll with it honey. What is my point? Hmmmmm...let me get back to you on that one. I love that fountain by the way...the one down there at the next post. Fancy.

In a way, blogging is a lot like Facebook, but not quite so well-organized. The more I comment on blogs, the more comments I get. And now, time to post something for people to comment on. LOL

But aside from the comments, write like nobody's reading. Write for the sheer joy and passion of it!
