Most of the day I have been immersed in thoughts about this blog. More befitting to describe the experience would be: submerged in a cerebration, not being able to see the surface where the justification and objectives might be found.
What is the purpose of this blog? Is it an egotistical trip? What qualify me to write it? Who is going to read it? Who would be interested in my “ruminations”? What category or categories should it be positioned? What needs does it meet? What cause or causes does it defend or attack? From what political, ideological, religious or economic perspective should it be formulated? Who among my family and friends it is going to antagonize or offend?
To answer these questions -and others unintentionally omitted- the cerebral ruminations will have to continue. Meanwhile, it is simple, this is a journal. I need no reason, no readers, no fame. I only need to express myself and in the process shed some of my fears and frustrations. Perhaps grow emotionally, spiritually, intellectually. Perhaps it will serve to avoid or at least postpone dementia.
