“…insight, vision, moments of revelation. During those rare moments something overtakes the man and he becomes the tool of a greater Force; the servant of, willing or unwilling depending on his degree of awakeness. The photograph, then, is a message more than a mirror, and the mans a messenger who happens to be a photographer.”

The Blog Performance

n

Usually when I have empty time and space thoughts & ideas appear. Ironically this usually happens when I am away from a computer (and I spend more time then I like to admit at the computer). Recently acquired and applied wisdom has equipped me with a notebook and pen which are a convenient substitute.

This morning the thoughts turned to the simple maturation process that my thoughts have grown into. The main reason I even write down my thoughts is an urge to share them with others by adding them to this blog. Some I do, many I don’t. Those that do make it onto the blog are first written as drafts. Some drafts make it into published posts, many don’t. Those that do are of-course shared with the world (regardless of how many people actually read them). A small few I revisit myself (usually when I refer to them with newer posts), most I don’t.

It seems to me that it is the motivation to share my thoughts that triggers this chain of events. I am usually satisfied with my private glimpses of the fleeting thoughts within me, I feel no attachment to them and therefor have no need to capture them.

There is an affirmative need to share – and it this not what a performance is all about?

Will this thought make it to the stage?

: ) It did
