A nice young woman I barely know asked me, “Why on Earth do you blog?”
How on Earth do I explain?
Every morning before the sun gets up, I get up, and I find my way to my computer. I crawl inside to find the thoughts of people I know waiting for me. What a gift, what a joy it is to share the minds of so many friends and to meet them so regularly.
I type what I think, what I feel, what I’ve discovered, unocovered, and I learn about what I know. People take what I say and tell me what it means. They explain how it goes. Ideas fly. They float and bend, like so many clouds in a summer sky of many minds talking without a sound, yet building meaning and finding truth.
Every evening before the sun goes down, I sit down and I find there’s a reason to keep telling stories and reading stories that help me understand why and how. I figure out who I am, who you are, who that is, who that was why we’re here. I hear about everyone that I meet. And together we make sense. I see how people and stars are made from the same stuff.
And together we make something good — something that would not be, could not be, if I did not, if you did not, blog.
I blog because I can.
Blogging is a universe and a university.
Who on Earth could say no to being part of this positive humanity?
I blog because we have the power to change the world.
