Thanks for popping in and taking the time to read this blog.
I know it takes me a lot longer to write it than it does for you to read it, and at first glance one could easily be lulled into believing that you are the passive reader, the audience, the less significant.
But actually, you are crucial.
If you didn’t pop in every day, would there be much point in my blogging? Would I actually still spend hours daily, making art projects, taking photos, teaching and sharing if you weren’t here for me to share anything with?
I wonder whether the busker on the corner of the street asks himself what for, if there’s nobody passing by, nobody stopping to listen, nobody throwing a copper in his cap.
But I think I would keep playing even if you didn’t stop by,
because bloggy play is good exercise for me too.
It is the quintessence of mindfulness, and great for humility.
Just as I’m sure the busker also sings on, because he can, and probably also because he lives in hope of an audience, of a crowd.
It’s not about numbers, or popularity, or ego.
(Edging Goodness Out)
No no no.
It’s enough for me to know that my Dad reads this blog every single day! How cool is that?! And he reads it out loud to my Mum too !!!
If only one person stops to listen,
the busker suddenly comes to life, and performs.
An audience of one is all it takes.
I know my audience is bigger than that nowadays.
But it wasn’t always that way.
Which is probably why I mostly stop and give the busker time and a little money. I’ll always buy the CD for a fiver too.
So yes. When I always thank you for popping in,
I really really mean
Love & Hugs,
