One has to wonder what motivates a person to write about anything these days. Do people rant in the hopes that someone out there is actually listening? Do people really expect to change the mind of someone they never even met? Personally, I think columnists spill out their thoughts in newspapers and blogs not to be heard, but simply to get all that clutter out of their heads.
So what’s it all about?
And can someone tell me who Alfie was and why we should care?
Several people, surprised at the diversity of my mental meltdowns, have asked me what am I normally thinking about.
Well, I’ve never been much of a fan of ‘normal’ and rational people wouldn’t want to spend any time in my head. Trust me, it’s messy, cluttered and has a lot of sharp objects that can cut you.
But I do love to write. I barely passed English in high school and my teachers would be amazed to see me now knowing the difference between a noun and a verb. That is to say, back in high school, “Me not good much at writing.”
The real question is, why don’t more people write? Why don’t more people send in letters to the editor, or e-mail their Senators or write letters anymore? When did writing go out of style?
