To be everything, everyone, everywhere.

The net, and the recently new experience of blogging, has invoked the weirdest feeling in me.

A longing to be vast and everywhere. There is a sense that I might miss out on something important. A revealing post in politics perhaps; usually the last place I’d venture into, or an interesting comment in the fashion section. All missed, all slipping out of view. I won’t read it. I experience it.

And I want to read it all.  If I could visit every single site, I would. I love all these words; quirky, funny, sad, intellectual, witty. [oh, no, there’s another one sliding out of my reach]

So, I have decided that while A is away, I shall wander into blog-land and see just how many different places I can reach.

There are no heaths where I live. No wild moors, which is probably what my heart requires now, that and some moody quill-written letters.  I could always wander into the bush, I suppose; it’s dripping, hushed and smelling of earth. It scares me a little.

No, I will wander virtually.  My mission: to find the wildest, most wind-swept blog in existence.

  1. I am right there with you. I start reading blogs and suddenly 3 hours have passed by in a blur! There are so many talented, quirky writers out there. Keep up the great work.

    Thanks for your comment on my blog. I thought I’d wander over here and have a look, and was both surprised and gratified to find something I’ve felt so often expressed so well. I get that sensation most frequently when I’ve just finished a good book, actually; a longing to be everywhere all at once, to see and experience anything and everything, the fear of missing out. I sometimes think I am quite greedy for life and knowledge! It’s nice to know I’m not the only one.

    Good luck on your hunt for the wildest blog 🙂

  4. I loved your site, the visit was a pleasure. So glad I’m not the only one with this feeling. I will tell you a secret though, Black Sheep: we are, and always will be, everything, everyone, everywhere. We never miss a single thing, despite feelings to the contrary.
    And greediness for life, my friend, is a very healthy sign.

    • Thank you 🙂 I’ve enjoyed your blog as well. May I ask – have you heard of Advaita philosophy? I only mention it because it espouses quite a similar view about the universe.

      • Hi Black Sheep, no, I haven’t heard of Advaita philosophy, but i will go and have a search for some info now. Can you recommend anything on the subject?

  5. Well, it’s not really my area of expertise but I am told Scott Kiloby is a good place to start. You could also try http://www.advaita.org/ 🙂
