Possibly somewhat fitting that I start my pledge to blog for mental health 2014 with a thought process akin to skipping a rough, oddly shaped rock across mirrored water. It’s path darting side to side almost as a rabbit would run through trees escaping a fox. Unknowing of its own path. Choosing direction based on adrenaline. Flee as fast as you can and sort out the rest later. Am I a rabbit?
This writing thing is becoming more important to me everyday. I might even pick up a book again one day. This needs to be important. This huge goal. My little goal. Stigma. . .
So why do we do it? Are we all sadists to some degree? I can’t let myself believe that people truly enjoy watching other people suffer. We must be better than that. We have created some amazing things out of the molecules that exist here. Furthering our need to consume and understand. Much understanding comes from creation. We can create a new place. Start anew inside our minds and the minds of those around us.
