Note to Self: Posts to Make

Simplicity & The Great Purge (about when I got rid of 75% of my personal possessions)

Playing War (about being a pacifist while reenacting)

Plainness vs. Conservatism (about how my emphasis on simplicity and function over fashion has gotten me mislabeled as a conservative from time to time)

Success!

Wow.  This blog was one of the most popular blogs on WordPress on Wednesday, according to growth of readership.

This makes me quite happy.  I like having readers.

Light Bulb Moment!

I was having trouble sleeping again – the “head noise” I posted about the other day was the culprit – but this time I figured out what the running conversation in my head is:  I’m writing blog posts in my sleep.

I’m serious.  I guess that this journal has been so cathartic that my brain is like “Yes!  Tell people!” in overdrive mode.  Now, I’ve been blogging for 8 years, but this is the first time I have ever really talked about this subject (as I mentioned in one of my posts), and so I guess it was much-needed!

So, I’m going to finish up my reenacting vs. Quaker post now (it’s 5am!), and I also have one coming now that’s about how most of Korea’s tremendous number of nuns and monks (both of Buddhist and Christian persuasion) wear their traditional dress on a daily basis, and the fact that yesterday I realized that it’s reminding me of the Amish.

Anyway – enjoy benefitting from my insomnia.  At least it’s serving some purpose.

Topics?

I have a post about my weird relationship with the combination of reenacting and pacifism in the works, but in the mean time, I would like to ask you, dear readers, what you would like to hear about in the future.

Ideas?  Suggestions?

 

Okay, it’s sleepytime, as it’s 2:15am.

What is this?

I intend to use this space to talk about my feelings on religion, spirituality, etc.  I was raised in a non-religious, non-spiritual home, but have always considered myself a rather spiritual person.  I started attending a Unitarian Universalist church in college, but switched to attending a Quaker Meeting (on a very, very irregular basis) by the end of my studies.  Though I have not attended a meeting on a regular basis, due to my moving around so much, it has very much resonated with me.  I am overseas right now, and upon my return to the US, I intend to further explore this aspect of my life more directly, but for now, I’d just like to use this space as somewhat of a “brain dump” on the subject of me and spirituality, etc.

Oh, and the title of the blog is from a joke that a friend of mine made once, that the bumpersticker for Quakers should be:  “Quakerism:  Shut Up and Listen”.   Given my propensity to talk my head off, I often have to tell myself this, and so I found it funny and appropriate.
