WordPress tells me that my posts have been viewed 61,719 times. I have no idea if that means anything.
I would like to accomplish several things with this blog.
First, it helps me clarify my own thinking. I discard many unpublished posts because as I write them they reveal their weaknesses.
It also is the flag I wave to attract attention to the wisdom people like David Bohm and Robert Greenleaf provide to us. I am especially interested in wisdom that has been sitting on the shelf for a few decades and which deserves the attention of young people.
I also advocate for artistic expression, and I have written posts on the importance of this work. Art nourishes the soul.
A third objective, and one that remains a distant goal, is to create a greater sense of community. I have something in mind that is a bit more vigorous than simply hitting the “like” button.
We need to build a sense of community in many areas of life, not just blogs. Community is sorely lacking these days. We all benefit when we help create community.
I welcome your comments.
