Gerry featured a photograph that might not be what it seems and our personal perspective on this situation may be different from what was actually happening.
We invited you to share events from your own life in which your personal perspective on something was coloured favourably or perhaps not so favourably.
A little while ago an acquaintance voiced the opinion that blogging is a solitary pastime “It’s hardly a social event; you need to get out more!” An interesting perspective, but not one I subscribe to.
This man misjudged my situation, implied I am lonely and assumed that blogging fills that void. He was wrong, I am not lonely, but blogging does fill a void, and for many of us it’s simply boredom, especially following retirement from a role that almost filled every waking hour.
I mentioned I’d met some very interesting people online, people I hold in high regard whom I now consider to be my friends. Blogging has also fostered a close relationship, but I didn’t tell him that, I wasn’t about to discuss my private life with him.
For some, blogging definitely assists in warding off loneliness, and that can only be a good thing.
A couple of my WP colleagues publish new posts umpteen times a day and freely admit that blogging has become an obsession, an addiction. They didn’t need to tell me any of this I’d already noticed; it’s like being with someone who won’t stop talking!
As some of you know I’ve just had a little break, my posts were written in advance (or re-blogged), and I hardly touched my WP e-mail account, therefore please accept my apologies if I was unable to answer or comment on your blog.
Right now, sitting in front of my computer I am taking the bull by the horns and hitting the ground running. My WP inbox is crammed with notifications of new posts and some with pictures of flowers, lots of them!
I’m fond of flowers, and occasionally I showcase my own floral photos as I have here. I particularly enjoy receiving them. Nonetheless, if a number of my friends were to send me flowers, and each of them dispatched those flowers several times a day, my home would resemble an overstocked flower shop, and I would very quickly run out of vases! My WP inbox is a little like that, so I hope you’ll forgive me if I don’t respond to each and every flower.
