I have no aim or subject matter by which I chose to develop this blog. I thought I could occupy my time by writing about stuff. A journal of comings and goings, splishes and splashes of musings, none which should make the least bit difference except fill the void.
I just want ‘to be’. I recently quoted ‘Wikipedia’ about existentialism in a book review of the The Stranger by Albert Camus: ‘The most important consideration for the individual is the fact that he or she is an individual—an independently acting and responsible, conscious being (“existence”)—rather than what labels, roles, stereotypes, definitions, or other preconceived categories the individual fits (“essence”)‘.
I believe by writing this blog it is a reminder to myself- that yes I am still an individual in the existential meaning of the word. Everything else is an afterthought.
