The lack of a purpose is precisely the point. Of course I’m talking about this blog, but I could be talking about any of a million others, too.
So much of the time we live as driven individuals — focused, goal-oriented, overachieving — as if every moment must be fulfilling some ultimate purpose. When do we decompress and simply let our thoughts ramble? When do we play, without the pressure of fitness or winning? Where do we go when we don’t have any place in particular in mind?
Blogs. Isn’t that why you’re here?
I won’t speak for you, but I need a little bit of time for ramblin’ — and this little digital island provides the perfect, purpose-free zone of enlightenment. No, I don’t care if I please you, thank-you-very-much. Not that I’m rude; I just don’t have the time to fuss about pleasing you, at least not here in this zone.
So if you give a damn, leave a comment. And if you don’t, no one will notice, nor shed a tear.
