Adding to the Noise
“And then…all the noise! All the noise, noise, noise, noise!
If there’s one thing I hate…all the noise, noise, noise, noise!
And they’ll shriek, squeak, and squeal racing round on their wheels,
Then dance with jin-tinglers tied onto their heels!”
“They’ll blow their flu-flubers, they’ll bang their tar-tinkers,
They’ll blow their hoo-hoovers, they’ll bang their gar-dinkers!
They’ll beat their trum-tookers, they’ll slam their sloo-slunkers!
They’ll beat their blum-blookers, they’ll wham their hoo-whunkers!”
– The Grinch (Dr. Seuss)
Do you ever wonder if your simply adding to The Noise?
I have been posting to this blog for nearly five years now. Recently I’ve been quiet. I could claim it’s because I have been busy, which I have. I could claim it’s because I have nothing to say, but I do. I could claim it’s because my photography has taken a back seat, which it has, and yet that’s not the real reason.
It seems I am simply tired of all the noise.
And I don’t want to add to it.
Who am I to spout my personal opinions? Who really needs or wants to hear them?
Who am I to teach anyone about photography? I am an Amateur.
Who am I to share things about my family? Does anyone really care what goes on in my little corner of the world?
Who am I to take readers along on my life journey? We all have our own to travel.
There’s that well known saying, “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.”
I am wondering if we should be living by the saying, “What happens in your head stays in your head.”
At times I feel like shutting up.
At times I feel like writing a book.
At times I feel like standing on my Soap Box and telling everyone what I REALLY think…about religion, about politics, about education, about social issues, about technology and jobs and God and Purpose.
But who am I to share any of those things?
There are already too many quality Mommy Blogs. And quality Cooking Blogs. And quality Photography Blogs. And quality Renovator Blogs. And useless “I-Want-To-Spout-Off-Into-The-Universe-Anything-That-Comes-Into-My-Teeny-Tiny-Close-Minded-Brain” Blogs. Do I really need to be another one? A mediocre one at that?
Who really wants to hear it?
Am I simply………………..
Adding to the Noise?
I think I will continue.
For this is MY place…My memory is stored here. My joys, My sorrows, some frustrations, My Journey, My evolution as a human being.
And I think I will continue.
