Substance and Life

This blog is in 2 parts.

Substance
I was just updating my blog list and I realized that those blogs that are interesting are the ones that have substance. Not just the random tidbits of life and writing but those that actually have some heart. So often, we are taught to show the world the most superficial sides of us, when in actuality all of us want to get to the heart of the person as quickly as possible.


Why do we all give superficiality to the outside world? Fear. But what is to fear? Rejection? Judgment?

We are so accustomed to disguise ourselves to others that in the end we become disguised to ourselves. ~Fran├žois Duc de La Rochefoucauld

This quote recognizes this.

Is our writing superficial? And if it is that the biggest problem within it? Instead of grammar and all those little things we spend so much time on, what if the main problem is that we are afraid to put ourselves out there which shackles our writing to being only skin deep?

Life

What have I been doing this weekend?

Shopping, hanging with Lindsay, and by far the most difficult, cleaning out Grandma's house.

Shopping:
I got new clothes, stuff for my car, dog stuff, my nails and hair done.

Lindsay:
We spent Sat. night together, but I got mad and drove home at 1 a.m. We are going out next weekend. Casino, shopping, clubbing, and then back to her place.

Grandma's:
When she died I NEVER expected it to be this hard.
