I have started thinking a lot about what I want in a blog. You don't spend hours upon hours updating something without thinking about exactly what you want it to be.
I want it to be super-cozy. I want it to be a place you can come and sit down and have tea and know that someone else has had crummy days before or fallen in love when they thought it was Too Impossible or has a tendency to enjoy their dogs more than they love most humans or whatever. I want you to leave saying, "Dear Goodness, I also love saltines & avocados!" or " Someone ELSE thinks MileyCyrus talks weird, too!?!?!" (It is something about the way she says her s's. No one else seems to hear it.)
I think one of the most powerful things in life happens when you encounter someone who can look at youand say, "I have totally been there before....and you're going to be alright."
It does not need to be a place where I try too hard to be 'cool.' Come on, I know myself well enough to admit that I am tempted to get on here and talk about annoyingly pretentious things like the difference between Philip Pullman and C.S. Lewis or how ticked I am that I can't always tell the difference between Postal Service & Deathcab...and now you give me Owl City!?!?! In an attempt to name this here sight, I was looking up synonyms for the word "awakening" for Pete's Sake.It needs to be a place of truth and honesty...cause anything else is just kind of stupid. So, here's to us.
