Welcome to my merry-go-round

vintage merry go round posterDo you get the analogy? Or is it an allegory? Or is it just symbolism? Well, it’s a word picture at the very least. And this is how I explain myself to myself. I have a lot of things on my mind. And each thing is a horse on the carousel (mine only has pretty horses, not frogs or emus or benches). It seems as soon as one catches my eye and I think about it and admire it, another one comes into view and steals my attention. These all go ’round and ’round and get attention here and there, but they are always revolving and moving in and out of view.

I’ve kinda, sorta wanted to have my own blog for a while, but it’s always seemed to be a merry-go-round of its own. For instance, does a blog need to exist for a purpose? Do I have a message? A platform? Would anyone be interested in the dumb things I have to blather about? Do I have dumb things to blather about beyond a one sentence Facebook post? Is it for my entertainment or for the attention of others? What would it look like? How would I do it? What would I call it? You see? This is how I mess with myself and make things more complicated than they are.

So, just to be clear, I have only a vague idea about what to do here. I have lofty goals from time to time, but a bargain-basement plan to execute those goals, so like the header says: enjoy the ride, but don’t throw up.

    I’m diggin the tag line about enjoy the ride but don’t throw up! lol
    yay you!
    I didn’t know what a blog was exactly when i started. I still don’t. I have no idea if anyone cares what I write. I write for me. its like a public journal. its amusing sometimes. sometimes its not. its pithy and deep sometimes. sometimes its not. there are no rules…why? because I’m an aquarius and I said so! get your capricorn panties off the ironing board and just write to write. 🙂
