Good question….

I had an email today from an old friend who asked me why I write this blog. It’s a question I’d not considered for a while and the answer is worthy of explanation. I write this blog to taste life twice, once in the moment and then in retrospection and not just to say what I can say, but what I am unable to say in other ways too. Not all of it is publicly available, in fact a lot of it can only be accessed by me such as private thoughts, memories and such which do not need to be in such a public forum. That said I do try to include as much openly as I dare, in the hopes that people will appreciate the openness and allow themselves to be open with me in return.

I often read it back and use it to remind me of the things I’ve done right so that I might repeat them and also of the things I’ve done wrong so I hopefully do not do them again. It’s handy sometimes to consider ones words and ones actions before you proceed to speak or carry them out. Life is all about change, the blog simply documents those changes for me to review. Anyone who rejects change is the architect of decay. After all the only human institution which rejects progress is the cemetery, and even then organic chemistry wins in the end.
