“Where have you been?” you ask. And, “Where have I been?” I ask. I started this blog to begin to come forth with my opinions, my ideas and my creations – with, I suppose, my self. I began with easy stuff. Easy to photograph and write about. Beautiful stuff, since most of it was about my beautiful grandchildren. They were very young at the time I put them into blogmania. All young children are beautiful, and their beautiful spirits are easy to capture in photographs and in writing.
I was aware at the time that I had a lot inside to blog about. Things beyond the innocence, the beauty, of little children. I would save it for later. Work myself up to it, I told myself. Alas, I did not think I would wait years to make any progress at all! But, I did in fact wait years. But, also alas, here I am again.
There is that thing called Writers Block. And there is also that thing called shyness.
So, where have I been? I have been many places psychologically and spiritually. I have been submerged in the changing tides of time and world affairs. In my hideaway state I have sensitively witnessed, and also taken in, the crazy nuances now pervading our society. I have wondered why there is so much animosity, so much fear, so much uncertainty. And why there needs to be any of this. Getting down to basics: basically, people (ordinary everyday people) don’t want this. The people with families, with jobs, with hopes and dreams. Somewhere there is a “power” group that is controlling everything. They do not represent the masses. Yet, they succeed with their control.
What if? What if ordinary everyday people did not have to live in fear? And what if the “power” people did not live in fear as well? For isn’t that what it is all about after all – even for them, the “power” people? Fear?
