Preserve my voice
Posted on 13 Mar ’13 by Earl
First, a sincere thank-you to those who via the previous post left kind birthday wishes and encouraging words on my current inspirational slump and time away from photographing, as well as my lack of participating in any meaningful way in this my little corner of the “blogosphere.”
I’ve experienced downtimes before but this particular one has been a doozy with seriously contemplation perhaps seven years of keeping this blog going was more than enough time devoted to proving whatever hapless points I was ever hoping to make with it…if any.
Over the past seven years I’ve devoted considerable time to this avenue of expression — 1840+ posts, 9450+ comments and replies. I’m still not certain what role, purpose or place it holds in my existence but still, for the time being, it continues to please me.
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
Perhaps this blog is a convient means to preserve my voice and not be silent. That thought certainly makes me assess the significance of my posts. I continue to ask myself, “Have I used, or am I using, my voice well?”
