I surf various blogs on various sites and I am amazed at the imagination and creativity of people. I wonder if the medium of the internet is recognized by the ‘intellectuals’ of the world. I wonder now if there truly is such a thing as an ‘intellectual’.
What does that mean anyway?
I don’t see anywhere other than the internet where ideas can be connected in new and interesting ways. The real genius of modern society is available for anyone who knows where to look, unfortunately, it is not always easy to know where to look.
I have tried to find individuals in various fields, bloggers like myself, to share ideas with. So far, only fellow writers have responded with any degree of interest. And they say that writers are a solitary bunch… they are wrong. In my experience writers thrive at meetings of the mind.
So, I am here, sending out my little plea for help. I am in need of discussion on diverse topics. I have become stagnant in my own mind and this condition only seems to worsen when I ‘cold call’ or search blindly for someone to ‘talk’ to on any given issue. For example, I would have loved further discussion on Self-Concept but it just did not happen.
I just passed a blog milestone, over 1,000 visits to the site. I thought that by the time I reached that marker that I would be comfortable with the blog and that I would have found a theme. I feel just as unsure as I was the first week or so, I actually think that I have gotten worse at the whole thing.
I don’t know, maybe this insecurity will pass, maybe tomorrow I will wake up and have something I want to say, but right now… I think that right now I have been done in by reality and the abstract and insight are lost to me.
I see the spark in other blogs around the world wide web, I feel the teasing warmth of inspiration, I sense Truth hiding around the corner but my reflexes are slow and I can’t grab hold. I would rather put forth posts full of ideas and passion, not posts such as this one, confused and numbed by the pressures of the world. But as it is, that is where I am, this is what I’ve got.
