Ten years ago I added the Morning Worship weblog to my creations for the Internet Having just finally finished the 10 year book project, I had a lot of writing in me. Also the politics was beginning to become scary and I wanted to consciously focus on that which is positive.
Reading through the archive of Morning Worship I am reminded of an experience I had one of the past times I went back into Atlanta. As I came to a changed but well known intersection I thought to myself; “the last time I was here I was in love. I am changed.”
In 2009 I wrote “Though it has only been a couple of years since doing the weblog (and 30 years since being in love) I am today aware if how different I feel. The metrics of the endless visits to the medical people and places have remained the same. I feel a little less vigor and I hurt a little more. My views as to how the world works or I would like it to be are the same. But something is gone. I am changed.
I fear acknowledging it; but I think optimism, my belief in the inevitability of man at the brink always coming through, is fading.
As I migrate these more or less daily entries into this Word Press I do feel uplifted. The diary entries are mostly on site as posts but without graphics and plugins. I will with minimal editing be gradually restoring them to original quality as technology allows but it will be a slow process.
I also plan to be adding, perhaps less frequently, new material that I find uplifting and promising and am restoring my blog Fireflies and Bonfires which is my primary opinion and political depository. This diary is an archive of the personal me.
