Our blog universe
I took a look at the list of blogs that I follow and am amazed at our community and its growth. I think that there are enough people listed to fill up an entire boat (for Pam's benefit) for the "Bloggers in Recovery" get together. I'm glad that Blogger added the new widget for following so that I can see who has updates. Otherwise, I'd be going through a very long list. There are lots of "us" out there who have decided to share their experience, strength and hope to a much larger community than our local meetings.
It's great to see some new people blogging. I came across Progress, not Perfection just the other day. Stop by and check out this new Al-Anon blogger. And then there is Cognitively Dissonant Interpretations to read.
But I also think about those who haven't written for a while. I think about Scout, JJ, Shugrr, and others whose posts I read. I hope that they are okay and decided to take a break from writing out their thoughts to the world online. There are days when I feel the same way--that I would rather not have to write about ordinary daily happenings because there is nothing much going on. But then I realize that nothing much going on--the status quo--isn't a bad thing either. If there isn't upheaval or chaos, then things just might be....serene. Yep, there's something to be said for those ordinary days when nothing much is going on.
