To consider persons and events and situations only in the light of their effect upon myself is to live on the doorstep of hell. Thomas Merton
Not to put too fine a point on it, but Tom would have made a lousy blogger!

Why even have a blog if it isn't to explore and share what you love, how different issues and events affect you and generally how the world appears to you.

I don't think there's anything wrong with that focus either- as long as there's recognition that the purpose of any kind of introspection should lead back to a greater awareness of how you operate in community; it should lead to a deeper understanding of where you stand in a world full of other 'selves' ...

and an appreciation that we're all making it up as we go along.
