So I follow a lot of Amercian blogs, and a lot of my followers are Muuuricans. It seems it’s Thanksgiving there, and my WordPress reader is filled with posts listing things to be thankful for, it’s actually really nice, and makes me reflect on all the things that I am thankful for. I was thinking yesterday that of all the things I’ve read, and I’ve read a lot of things, some of the best, most amazing things I have read have been on blogs. Not in newspapers, books and magazines. Not classic authors or independant journalists, but bloggers. You guys.
Take this post ‘Lovely Knots’ from Rara yesterday for example. Here is a person who is in prison. Who has had a whole heap of crap thrown at her this last year, and still she produces something that is of such value and changes the way I see the world. She talks about knots in the threads of time, that are fixed in place regardless of the decisions we make. I think there’s a lot of truth to that. She talks about signs and signals being recurring themes in our daily lives (such as seeing yellow roses repeatedly).
