Today's song of choice was selected for its smooth flowing tempo, but more for the fact that my iPod went dead during the middle of my walk & I didn't get to finish the song. As you have guessed, it has no relevance to today's post. Carry on.
Recently I received an email from my dear old friend, Fran, and I do mean old. She hit the big 5-Oh this year. Is that truly the mark of old? Anyway, she said she had been contemplating starting a blog these last few weeks, but was stuck on coming up with a title for it. If this is blogging, I mean bogging her down, she's in for a rude awakening. Maybe, if you don't get into the habit of blogging everyday, it's not so bad. Once you've crossed that line, there's no turning back. You bleed blog. That's my experience, anyway. While I walk, I think blog. While I snap pics, I see blog. While I converse, I envision blog. BLOG, BLOG BLOG! I can't escape it. Like, after I posted the song "Surfer Girl" just a few minutes ago (which I did actually plan while I was walking & yes, my iPod really did die), I thought, "OMG, I should save that song and do a post about Internet surfing and the girl can be me!". You see, it never stops. Blog mode rules. It's a scary abyss. Think hard, Fran, before you take the plunge. Sometimes a post idea hatches and is on paper in a matter of a few minutes, but then I have to conjure up a coordinating song, which may occur instantly or hold my post back for hours while I search for that perfect tune. Sometimes the song comes first and then the blog, sort of like the chicken and the egg. Who knows? And then there are times when I catch myself rambling on and on as I am right now, and then the stress kicks in. Are you feeling my pain, yet? OMG, I gotta go take a chill pill, people. Later!
