I was having a really good conversation last night with an excellent friend, someone whose opinion I value highly. They mentioned that while reading my blog they felt as though they were intruding, almost as a voyeur into my thoughts. I know some of the things I’ve written here would normally be put into a diary, a private journal, the thoughts I’ve put here are not as private as some would think. The really private thoughts I keep elsewhere, somewhere the world can’t see. The ones I’ve put out there for everyone to see are the thoughts I don’t want to keep. Writing them in a public place allows me to purge them; it’s a liberating feeling to get these thoughts out.
