|« Holidays ahead!||Still going... Day 13. »|
Wow…. haven’t been on the web site for over a week…and all these changes. Paul Buckless, with his many contributions, has been immortalized into the hall of fame, deservedly so. Writing 150 blogs in 6 months takes a lot of dedication and imagination. I can see how you can run out of things to write about. I face this challenge currently, and I have only written 50 blogs. Seeing the ornamental head reef beside Paul’s photo, it would have been nice if it were super imposed on his head…with the Olympics presently on and it being in Greece…it would signify that Paul won the gold (and hearts of many BTDers).
When I first started this exercise in self-discovery back in January, I was thinking it would be like…’a year in the life of a BTDer’ … which is still my goal, but it has come to a point where a feel I can’t really put a time line on this venture. When I saw my visitor hit counter pass the 10000 mark just last week, I did not marvel at the number but rather looked at it as a marker for a point in time…I asked myself “how am I different from the person I was seven months ago” when I wrote my first blog. What insights have I gained about myself (excluding the biological aspects of my O blood type) and that of others? Underneath this miraculous work of machinery (our bodies) and under our unique personalities (which is another aspect of our being we all need to figure out)…lays our true essence…our innate nobility and spirit. Being on this diet and blogging has for myself stripped some ‘layers’ of my ‘human’ being away. There may come a time when this exercise in self-discovery may cease helping me peel back these layers and I might have to find another ‘avenue’ towards my true self. Until then I’ll keep blogging.
As for Paul, I would like to think that deep down he has come to this realization and he has decided to take another ‘road’.
If you’re reading this Paul…’Good luck on your new journey’.
