Hello, is there anybody out there?
It's been near on 3 years since declaring my last post and everything in this virtual landscape has changed (so much). I thought it'd be like coming home, but it's all so different now... or is it...?
Why do we (Ron Burgundy and 1960's, 70's & 80's rock bands) feel the need to make a comeback?
Is it because we are trying to recapture the feelings of success and adoration we enjoyed all those years ago?
Is is because that every 'new' thing we've tried since our departure has failed, or simply did not give us the same buzz?
Is a comeback similar to rekindling an old flame? We go back because of great memories - but in time, will we soon be reminded why we split up in the first place?
All is to be revealed (to myself also).
So why the comeback - my comeback - and will it last?
Truth is, I don't know.
I reinvented myself a gazillion times after Project Grace 2010 in my pursuit of the perfect persona and the perfect blog - but I felt like I was an impostor... of myself.
Weird, I know.
I started Project Grace 2010 with a specific intention of 'finding myself' leading up to my 40th birthday.
The thing is, I am continually evolving (aren't we all?) and I failed to allow my blog to evolve with me.
I held a rigid interpretation of the title, which made it seem odd for me to continue beyond 2010. How silly was I?
Three years later, my view has expanded. Project Grace 2010 can mean whatever I choose for it to mean. I am the creator, the author - just as I am creator and author of my life... it's time to start writing... again.
Until our next virtual cuppa, where in life can you alter your interpretation and make a comeback?
ps. Thank you Kate for your encouraging words on 6th September 2010.
