I thought about not blogging at all. Time is, after all, about to become a bigger issue for me than it has been of late. I could go cold turkey.
As I was considering my options, a longtime occasional reader from the AOL days left me a lovely comment, to the effect that reading the blog can be like a retreat at times. Hmmm, I thought. Maybe that's the focus. I suppose I will continue to ramble through my daily life in my entries, reduced in number through they might be, which means that all of the subjects listed in my sidebar will continue to show up from time to time. But the religious stuff? Maybe more reflection and less minutiae? Or not? The spiritual does have a way of making its appearance through the trivial.
I guess we will have to see. What I have concluded for the time being is to try to set the more focused "new life" entries aside, however haphazardly they appear, into a series entitled Intersections, a word which reflects the locus of my life right now. There is a place about half a mile from our home where five streets come together in one massive intersection, necessitating five different crosswalks and a confusing computerized system of signals for cars and pedestrians. I am feeling a bit as if I am standing in the middle of the entire conglomeration of pavement, lights, cars, and people. Peacefully. And hopefully. (The gelateria is, after all, right there.)
So ~ Intersections it is.
