It's one of the finest things we do; write about our lives, because not only do we reveal our minds through revelations our thoughts provide us—
But it gives us an incentive to be honest...
It's almost impossible not to consider the value of thoughts with the fairly steady flow of them; their rudimentary worth, relevance to our lives and the importance to the people who have them. It's easy to see how distorted a thought can become when left to constant re-examination and how faceless victim/culprit dichotomies are given grounding by a name or a hover-card. If the last few weeks has demonstrated anything, it's how something as simple as a pen-stroke can release the burden and stresses they invariably cause. I've had glimpses into how fears, confessions, pains and crises can be put right by words creating deeds by changing little parts of the world. And I shouldn't be surprised: we write about things and repeat ourselves about things that have meaning to us.
It keeps me humble...

Be safe on your travels … 🙂
I most certainly will, thank you 😀
You’re very welcome. 🙂
Ahhh The Ashes! It’s so exciting 😛 Have a fantastic trip!
Thank you very much – I’m looking forward to a good drink tomorrow! 😀 Very excited!
have a lovely trip and hope you will be posting pictures of it very soon.
Thank you very much 🙂 Might be a bit short of pictures though! I’m glad you stopped by and had a good read.I’m hoping to get some time in the next few days to add a little more!
Will surely be looking forward to it. Have a safe trip.
Thank you 😀 I’m looking forward to getting back to it once my break’s over!
Go the Aussies . I remember buying tickets to the ashes in Perth 2006 as a birthday present for my son. The reasoning was I’d never been across to Perth and my son was too young to go alone . So it turned into a family holiday with a few days allocated without complaint to my daughter and I shopping while my son and husband watched cricket 🙂
The friend I’m staying with is flying out to Melbourne in a couple of weeks for the Boxing Day Test!!!
Mitch was on fire this week, really fabulous contest – I heard a little while ago that Trott has flown home with stress which is a big blow, he hasn’t looked himself… It’ll be closer in Adelaide though, but it’s going to be tough coming back… I like your style though – perfect family hols 😀 Shopping and cricket! We got hammered in ’06. I was in the US at the time watching the ball-by-ball analysis on cricinfo – flew out on day 5 of the Adelaide test and was distraught we’d conspired to lose it: nightmares!!!! 😀
