When I started this blog, my intention was to use it only to post things I made or things about stuff I made just to keep it, I guess, pure in my mind. I started this one: brightlyreblo in an attempt to track what I’m reading or what’s sticking to me when I look at tumblr, etc. My intention is to post books I’m reading, art I’m looking at. Maybe even things I’m practicing if I get back in the habit of writing them down.
I should mention here that for a period of about 6 months I was toying with the idea of applying to the IOT, it passed after a couple of months, but I obsessively scribed every practice I was engaged in every day for a year anyway. I stopped because I never had a cause to look back at those pages. I thought it might be helpful, but I never had a cause to look back. Then I thought about how egocentric (in the bad way) it seemed to want to keep such a record for any other purpose than to look back at it yourself. No one is going to be interested in the time I did a headstand for 3 hours every day, or the time I saw strange crystalline spiders in a cosmic tube aimed at the moon.
