I've been thinking about blogging lately, how it has changed, for me at least, and how difficult it is for me to blog now. I'm not really sure how it happened, or if I just prefer other social media platforms, like Instagram, but one thing is for sure, I do miss blogging.
I miss the freedom that blogging allows, to write about anything that moves and inspires me. I miss having a core group of blogs to read, and bloggers I interact with on a consistent basis. I miss the routine and comfort of this little space.
I guess what I'm trying to say is, I really hope to blog more again.
In the meantime, here are some things that inspire me lately:
- Slow reading Middlemarch
- Stephen Hawking's biopic, The Theory of Everything
- The Faraway Nearby by Rebecca Solnit
- Swedish poetry, especially those by Edith Södergran and Gunnar Ekelöf
Happy November, my friends.
