It’s been good to have a rest, a break, and some time to reflect. It’s also been good to think more deliberately about what I write here. Too often it is easy to get lost in the whirlwind of arranging Fika (why does setting up one Fika post take 3-4 times as much effort and time as it does to write my own post?) and other posts. Meditating on several things over the past few days has reminded me why I began writing.
For me, it has always been about connections. Community. Finding people who can understand where I come from. As I’ve seen various individuals enter and exit blogland, I’ve learned that community is a shifting entity. We can’t collect a stable group because the group itself is in flux. It is one of the hardest parts about life–when we find a moment that is precious, it is gone almost before we realize it existed.
Yet it is the fleeting nature of these moments that makes it precious.
Not much to say today. Just checking in, saying hello, and sending everyone a wave.
Glad you are here.
