Shots in the dark

I rather like this business of blogging. I’m one of countless anonymous voices. I only show you the sides of me I want you to see. If you like what you see, you keep reading. If not, you click a button and no one has to feel embaressed or rejected. There’s no pointless, awkward small talk: "What do you do?" "What do you think about the war?" We’re all just tiny little voices crying out to one another in the night, baring our souls in the most sterile environment imaginable. A fantasy land we call the internet, where anything can happen and the mask of anonymity lets us be anything we want to be. What fantastic age we live in.

True to everything you said. Many do just as you described, but there are also those that find that by offering realness in their words, pictures and thoughts, that they (meaning me) have a sense of bringing something to the party (blogging) that is missing...

In my case, they are ramblings mostly, but you write very eloquently... I envy that ability.

I think it is the anonymity of the medium that allows the realness you spoke of to happen and I agree that is does happen, often in very unexpected ways.

Thank you for commenting, you're the first :)

I find a certain isolation in your writing. Kind of a sad vibe, but not "boo hoo" sad. I have walked where your writing treads. Sometimes the quietness of it all almost gives me courage to fall into it. It was a chance of many to have met you. I appreciate your candor and your writing shows that fences do not belong to the creative.

That was very well put Mike, I'm flattered.
