it's not dark yet, but it's getting there.
bob dylan said that. kind of a cryptic message. haunting, actually. but it always gets dark. everyday. but the light eventually pierces the blackness.
and a new day dawns.
i started blogging just over 9 years ago. my first post was the track listing to the new U2 record. Bono called it "their most personal record."
753 blog posts later, here we are. a history. a diary. of free-expression. of hope. of creativity. of art. my art. in words and pictures.
it's obvious to the few who may have frequented my blog that i have largely neglected it for some time. not a post since May. yeah, i have been blogging about discipleship over here and have some random music posts over here, and tweets here. but fantastic distraction hasn't been such a distraction it once was. to me or perhaps to you.
i have no regrets. this is my life for 9 years, on digital paper. i look back in kindness from time to time. fond memories. forgotten diatribes, expressionsand random musings.
it's not dark yet, but it's getting there. i know. prevalent neglect.
but the words remain. they'll always remain... so long as there's electricity. and energy. and google.
and for that i am thankful.
and when the darkness comes and goes, a new day will dawn. and perhaps more words will return. i don't know - but the archive is here. for me. for you. use it as you please. or neglect it too. it's o.k. sometimes it wasn't about getting others to read the words i wrote - as if i was that important... it was about the expression of self.
i've just found new ways to express thy self. so have many of you.
until the new day, good evening.
