enter the blog
Enter the blog: the blog as therapy, the blog as confessional, the blog as a path (may I even suggest?) to redemption.
When I push that "publish post" button, a wave of relief and resolve sends me gliding along into my day: lose ends neatly tied, or at least explicitly untied, placing my minute struggles on a larger narrative trajectory. How satisfying. And I've said nothing here but to blog about blogging, which is probably the same as communicating about communication--something my husband refuses to do. I feel better, but my reader is likely irritated.
It's 9:30 and my son has found a tube of diaper rash cream and is carefully smearing it on his bedsheets. A half an hour and I've found my way out, at least for the next few minutes.
