The Whole Point
Since I first worked on the internet back in 1998 the dynamic has, in accordance with the law of physics, moved at an amazing pace and these day I do wonder why I persist and blog. There is such an amazing array of material available that it is easy to plunge into self doubt and question the whole point of it all. Continuing to blog is a bit like putting myself in a scene from Project Runway where Heide constantly reminds designers that ‘one day you are in and the next day you are out.’ It is difficult to see the point of maintaining a presence in such a highly competitive environment.
Originally when I established the Writing Directory at the Soul Food Cafe the object was to be a guide and show people things that I had found.
I have wondered if being a guide is actually enough.
Then I reminded myself that a good guide is curious about their surroundings and likes to learn about new things and share them.
So I find myself sharing Brain Pickings again today. This is the kind of site that a good guide would keep returning to. It feeds my elephant trunk like mind that wanders casually from one thing to another.
Brain Pickings is a fabulous site that focuses on the essence and anatomy of creativity, a subject that has long fascinated me.
