De Profundis

I occasionally get the urge to blog something really deep, profound and meaningful.

Without fail, that urge is accompanied by a complete lack of anything really deep, profound and meaningful to blog about.

I think it's probably for the best that those two conditions always seem to occur simultaneously

:)

I'm scratching my head here. Maybe, you spook yourself out, looking to express something that can't yet be expressed. Or, it's just not ready to come out, not ripe for prime time.

oh I can so identify with this one.
Break a leg tonight!
And enjoy the rest of the week.
I'll look forward to hearing all about it.

lakeviewer, there may be elements of that, but I think it's also about affirmation or attention-seeking...I'm quite sure it's no coincidence that when I feel like I want to write something deep, there's nothing of any substance that I'm actually considering. It's more like, look at me, look at how deep and thoughtful I can be!

So, thankfully, everything cancels itself out, or this site would be insufferably bombastic amongst other things.

I realise that the last sentence above is a real feed line..

FB, now that I've spelt out some of the ignoble side of such thoughts, I hope that's not what you identify with! My gig isn't tonight, it's Tuesday, so I aim to break nothing :)

I'm aiming to blog while I'm away - whether posting or just commenting.

" Ah Bisto"

Well, but - the feeling, the urge to express that profound and meaningful thing comes from somewhere. So next time it comes upon you, just focus on anything that comes to mind or is close at hand and, you know, give it some space. As far as I can make out, the profound and meaningful move in mysterious ways and seldom announce themselves with fanfare.

Deej: good, I'm glad :)

zola, such is the level of meaning and insight to which I aspire.

Signs, notwithstanding the aspersions I've already cast, I will keep that in mind and give it a go.

I'm also wondering how much of a correlation there is between the deep and meaningful urge, and the partaking of one or two libations...

I can't deep blog. I get the bends.
