Corn dog struck with an axe and chopped it down. Beth is just having a life. But damn, I miss them already. More than I miss the comics, more than I miss Emma Jensen's fluffy goodness. And you can't make me stop doing SBD which is about stuff I read, okay? Since I get to define it at the moment.
But le sigh.
Turns out my favorite sort of blogs aren't book review blogs or promo blogs or even kerfuffle blogs but the bits of people's lives now and then blogs. The "scene just outside the window, the weird plant I found on the walk home, the exchange I overheard on the bus" blogs. Those blogs have the rants that make me either want to say GO! YEAH or Huh, never thought of it like that. And then there are the occasional reflections on the past or the future and those make me want to weep because I'm reminded of the amazing resilience of people.
I don't have the same urge to abandon this blog because I don' think I usually put as much of myself into mine as they do theirs. So it'll never be as lovely or thoughtful as theirs. On the other hand, quantity rather than quality means I'm always here. Waving! Hi!
Write again soon, guys, even if it isn't a heart-breaking, life-afirming personal essay. Just go for the life-afirming one. A quick line to say "still out here, living."
JMC? Suisan? Anyone else got an SBD today? It is Monday. :::More sighing:::
