Random Blog

One of my New Year’s resolutions should be to be less inhibited in my writing because I sit for an hour trying to think of something to write my blog about, wanting to be relevant and all, and the whole point of writing a blog a day should be to break through the wall, to make it so writing comes as naturally as walking to the store, becomes a thing I  can do with my mind turned off, or at any rate in idle, as my fingers move almost by themselves across the keyboard.  It’s like a video  I  just watched of a young  girl who did push ups for 100 days because she was tired of people calling her scrawny.  She filmed it every day, of course, because that’s why I saw the video, but I say of course actually because that’s just what people do today  and that’s good.  A montage of a teen girl doing push ups is as  important to science, in its way, as time lapse photography of a caterpillar metamorphosing into a butterfly.  On the first couple of days, she was struggling to get through a push up or two, but by the hundredth day, she’s getting hands and feet of the grounds and clapping in the air, and doing plenty of them at speed.  Maybe more inspirational than educational, but we need  that, too.

In fact, that will be one of my New Year’s resolutions, because the list I  have now has several specific writing projects, but no that.  No  spontaneity, I mean.  I’m  not going to  start  doing push  ups every day.
