No, I'm not going to start quoting text from the Bible here. From time to time though, I plan on revealing a little more about me. About how I've come to love and appreciate the world that we all live in.
I find the spam comments that I know we all get to be annoying. Blogger does a great job of keeping most of them from ever hitting the comment section. But still, daily I am checking a few of them just to make sure that my readers do not have to be subjected to them. It's so annoying that I've even contemplated eliminating the blog.
I'll publish some of my thoughts and get bombarded again with more spam comments. It really makes me want to stop. But then I think of the great readers and commenters that are honestly reading and commenting their true opinions. I love to inspire thought. And I enjoy being able to use this format for sharing my life with friends and total strangers. But a couple of days will go by and I won't have posted anything. It's not that I don't have entertaining things to say. It's just a matter of forming new habits. Habits that don't include sitting down and typing.
As Albert Einstein once said, "Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving." This is the time of year when many of us in the Northern Hemisphere, find ourselves with a touch of cabin fever. It's rare that we get to go outside and do the things we love. And even inside, we tend to find ourselves curled up with a favorite blanket and a remote rather than doing something productive. These writing exercises are more productive and challenging than many of you may even know because I have been affected by dyslexia since I was a child. So when I start getting into one of those habits of not blogging, it seems to perpetuate.
I start to notice in my everyday life that words and numbers start to look more like what you see here....
So you see, writing to you all and even reading your blogs, is a challenge for me. A challenge that I accept with open arms. I see my condition as a gift. I am able to overcome this challenge by doing some simple exercises with my eyes and brain. Things that I know the average person never has to deal with. And by simply reading things on a daily basis, I know that I have accomplished more than most. That makes me feel pretty darn good.
And you all know that I love to share all the crazy things that happen here.
I plan to keep moving. Moving forward, expanding the content and opening up more about the world that I see. The world that I live in. The world that I appreciate probably more than I should.
So spammers or not, this blog lives on. Lives on, on The Brighter Side, of the Grave.
