I've been thinking a lot about what is important. For whatever reason, I want to do important things — or rather, I want to do things that actually make a difference, as opposed to doing things that may as well not have been done.
Is writing in this blog important, especially since practically nobody will read it? I don't know. I'm justifying it right now because I think it helps me thinking through the things I've been thinking about, and is an investment in my own mental machinery.
Of course, a part of me does want to be heard, and secretly wishes that people did read this blog, and that part of me worries about putting crap, like this post, in this blog, since they reduce the likelihood that this blog is worth reading.
