Either I'm a lunatic or a glutton for punishment, I'm still trying to figure out which. I've chosen to join the blogathon at the busiest time of my life....or at least one of the busiest times. So I ask myself, why? I guess I have been very slack in blogging in recent months and I am hoping the practice of getting a blog post out there every day is going to put me back on track.
What am I getting back on track to? Where has this blog been and where does it plan to go? I guess this blog, although often about travel and places is not a travel blog. Although I may write about people, it is not a biographical blog. So what exactly is it about? It is basically a blog about memories past and present...because after all what happens in our present becomes memories for our future. It is about people, places and phases in my life which made enough of an impact that I would want to remember them. Some not such great memories, but events which impacted my life in a way which changed me. Some great memories...great people I've come across who will forever leave a mark on me...some fabulous places which make me wish I could go back to visit again...some phases of my life which just seemed like heaven on earth. All memories which I want to record because as I get older my own memory is not as reliable and it is good to have some 'hard' evidence of what really happened.
This blog started long before the blogathon and most of my memories are stuffed back in the recesses of the beginnings of the blog. I will attempt to not repeat those memories during the 31 days of the blogathon. I hope to introduce some amazing people, fresh ideas and new places to the blog. I hope to jumpstart my brain a bit and maybe, just maybe, I can get back on track to regularly blogging again....we will see, won't we? :)
