What is the theme of this blog?

I've been trying to figure out what I should be blogging about lately. If I have a theme to the blog, then the content will become obvious, or so it seems to me. My friend Josh, who has his own blog about life in China, suggested that I write about my life and my experiences. For some reason I'm resisting doing this, although I'm not sure why. Perhaps I don't feel comfortable expressing my innermost thoughts in such a potentially public space. Or maybe it's because it would be obvious to everyone how boring my life really is. The truth is probably a combination of reasons, some known to me and some unknown.

After mulling it over for a while, I've decided that I should blog, and any potential theme to the blog will appear from the posts. Perhaps it will even change over time. Just write about whatever I feel called to write about on a given day, and over time I'll figure out what I like to write about, and maybe even figure out what "works" and "doesn't work".

One could write to write. Or attempt to simply write while one writes; writing to write rather than writing to write anything.
Writing meditation. Like eating meditation and washing dishes meditation and so on.
An exercise in simply being present.

Keep Breathing!
