There are so many views out there, perspectives which never see the light of day, some we never share, that are consigned to memory, or forgotten about. The idea of this site is to share ideas, commentaries, reviews and fiction with friends and strangers, to show the world as we see it, because it is us, as well as the media, who can shape the world.
A blog is a sort of public diary. It is a cross between the public and the personal. Some people may choose to write about how they feel because the act of writing can be cathartic. It can be helpful to get ideas out of your individual head, to share issues, and see how they are received by the collective consciousness. We may not always welcome how our thoughts are interpreted, or strike a chord of empathy or understanding, however there is bravery in every attempt to reach out and communicate. Fear of negative feedback or social rejection can lead to self censorship and isolation. Writers bring their voice, their character, their skills of observation and perception to reimagine the human experience, to relate to others, to illuminate life and to entertain.
I encourage you to speak out, to use this environment instead of being afraid to have an opinion or worry who is listening. I want to hear your embarrassing childhood story, diary entry, or your current unspoken thoughts. In freedom we have strength. In imagination we have a future. In shared ideas we have a community.
