Listen, the truth is I have a perfectly good post waiting to be written, the problem is I keep forgetting it. I mean one minute it's there practically shrieking to get out and the next minute I'm staring at a blank screen or a piece of paper (because I COULD write it down, at least the thought) and it's just gone. I'm pretty sure it will be back. It's come and gone now three or four times in the last week and a half I think.
However, I'm having one of those moments when I think I'm speaking into thin air again and I could write anything without taking it in the chin because... wait for it... no one is reading...
I'm not talking about you. You're reading. I see you here. You leave footprints. Hi. :-)
I mean the people we think about in the back of our heads when we write where we edit, and curb and rephrase and dance around it or just don't say it. I'm pretty sure I'm alone out here right now.
AND I CAN YELL AS LOUD AS I WANT AND BEHAVE LIKE A COMPLETE JACKASS AND GET AWAY WITH IT.
God, that felt sort of good in an abstract kind of way.
I'm still struggling with some stuff but mostly I think these new/old concepts of sexism or just plain bad behavior - things I buy into or we buy into keep jumping up and hitting me in the face. Women as chattel, it isn't men we need to be so unhappy with necessarily, at least not as adult women. Who are we being that we choose some of the things we choose? Don't blame the media, don't blame the men...
Well. I do have a point out there somewhere I just see to have misplaced it. Today's topic was just me noticing that I'm hollering into an empty canyon and that, that's something. Again.
And also. No spam.... shhhhhhhhhhhh
