There are those who blog hatred, BS or spam, but most are here to tell a story, make their mark, or just say their piece... it's important for we Sapiens to know that someone hears us, and hopefully, understands.
A friend of mine, Steve Mays, (also the guy who got me interested in blogging) wrote something on his blog recently, which moved me and bears repeating here. It was a simple sentence, part of a bigger story about a family visit:
"Being with my brother and his family has a calming and healing
effect on me. I suspect that's true for everybody around him."
I don't want to get too mushy here, but I think there is no nobler goal in life than to affect people in this way. Reading Steve's words made me wonder if (and hope) someone, somewhere, feels that way about me.
These kinds of words, and the feelings they provoke, are why I blog. And, why I read blogs like Steve's. Read it when you get a chance. Great balance and honesty.
