I have not been updating this blog because I’ve found myself obsessing over how long it’s been since one of my blog posts has been featured on QuakerQuaker. I’ll write a post, think “Surely this post is so inspirational and moving that it’ll be QuakerQuakered”, and then am inevitably disappointed when it does not. Posting on here to be QuakerQuakered is not why I created this blog. This blog isn’t about my ego; or, at least, it shouldn’t be. It’s not about whether anyone else finds what I say interesting or thought-provoking or inspirational.
It’s about encouraging me to keep a written record of where I am on my spiritual path so that I am better able to discern where I’m going. It’s about becoming more comfortable sharing my faith with people I don’t know and whose faiths inevitably will differ to some degree. It’s not about announcing to the world how spiritual or how faithful or how Christian or how Quaker or how Buddhist I am. It’s about offering my faith to the scrutiny of others so that it is tempered and strengthened.
Unless God calls me to do otherwise, I will not be updating this blog again until I can post an entry without wondering if it will be featured on QuakerQuaker. Please read my livejournal for updates on my life (and, recently, for updates on Sugar, my Siamese cat, whose kidneys are starting to fail her). I will continue to comment on blogs and check QuakerQuaker and I hope to see you all on here again soon.
