Blogging is somewhat akin to talking to oneself most of the time, I think. I want to convince myself that I truly “do not care” if there is anyone there reading and considering what I write. It’s perhaps pathetic but true that I do find myself wondering if whatever random orchestration of nouns and verbs I’ve concocted has any resonance among the few who wander by here.
Many times I find myself writing to solidify a thought that has been cogitating or an emotion restlessly writhing under the surface. It is in that type of writing where I write, or more accurately literately vomit, and then go on with hardly a look behind to see what mayhem I have left in my wake.
I would write more about politics but I am overwhelmed by the speed at which things are changing, the stark similarities to some of the sins of the past. I am not only a Jew but a fundamentalist, homeschooling, self-employed, conservative follower of Jesus… If my country continues to change at the current rate?
There may be a bunk somewhere with my name on it. And a free shower.
Does that sound alarmist? Reactionary? Paranoid?
It is the fear of the masses and the compliant bleating of the well-intentioned but uninformed who rationalized an insane man with a small mustache not all that long ago. And it is those who defend and attempt to resurrect the insanity of the 20th century with it’s abysmal track record who will create an oppression that, in the end, will destroy all they believed they were protecting.
Expatriation is not a foreign discussion in our home. Neither is attempting to find a location that might be more self-sufficient.
I would talk more about the religious establishment but it is difficult to be gracious in light of the aforementioned situations and the frustration I experience when I see the focus on church growth as shown by nightclub church, mindless drones following the man up front without the slightest inclination to accept and own their own faith.
Jesus is returning for a remnant.
I would write more about my kids, our home, life… Maybe homeschooling… Dood. I seriously break out in hives at the thought of being a mommy blogger.
So what should I blog about?
Does it matter?
