It’s Friday night and an almost-full moon. I would be going outside to photograph it, except that it’s cold and dark and damp outside and I am a bit of a weenie.¹ I have neglected to put up any new work on here and I think it’s quite a shame, for two reasons:
1. New blog posts drive up the traffic, and more traffic signals to the world that I am a very important person.
2. I have missed putting up new work.
Reason one is a bit of a laugh, except that I do appreciate the traffic. Thank you for reading. I mean it.
Reason two is due to inner paralysis, which is something I am working on. I am giving myself a bit of occupational therapy of the mind, shall we say. The therapy goes like this–
Me: Post the pictures!
Surly me: No. Why bother?
Surly me: BECAUSE WHY.
If I don’t post, someone else will. If I don’t put things out there, others will. I will admire their work while secretly thinking that, meh, I could have done better; have done better; or well, wish I could do better and might have, if I’d only gotten started.
It’s hard work, prying oneself loose of the scales that protect one’s ego. But a good exfoliation is appropriate and therapeutic every once in a while. And hence, a photo of a lovely bathroom to carry that image through, just for you.³
I’m proud to be part of the blog traffic that signals to the world that you are a very important person. 😉 What a wonderful conclusion Me and Surly me have come to about why you should post something. Because is always such a reasonable reason! Love your thinking.
Because I want to do it is a valid reason. Because no one else has the same perspective that I do is another valid reason. Because there may be people who have never seen it and won’t see it unless I post it. Because!
You are an important person. There is no one else like you anywhere in the world. 🙂
Coolest. Bathroom. EVER.
Nice head shot. Ba DUM dump!
You made me laugh with your last footnote.
I’m glad you are posting. I am suffering from similar inner paralysis. I have so many photos I want to post and so much to say, but I struggle to put anything out there these days. Gah!
We should form a support group.
