Sometimes we do something or visit somewhere and it is fairly straightforward to write about it; travelogue style pieces that essentially say we went here and saw that. However occasionally we do or see something that provokes a deeper response in me and I then find it quite hard to think about how to write about it to the extent that I wonder whether I should or not. That is because my response will mean that I have to share something about myself and my feelings and opinions with the “world” that I may not think is entirely politic. Even writing this paragraph falls into that category and leads me to ponder what exactly is the purpose of the blog and why I am writing it. When I am “stuck” over a post in this way I always know as I will often start it and then scrap it; write the first paragraph and decide it is not right; give it one title and then change it and sometimes abandon it altogether. All of this except the abandoning have been true of this post.
