There is an effort involved in writing a blog that must have some sort of return, I think. Not simply a return to me, the writer, but some benefit accruing to the readers. One has to believe it is worth the effort.
I have been encouraged to write by some who have been my readers in the past. I am full of self-doubt; my life has had many failures recently, and I have felt very much less capable than I once felt. Nevertheless I will attempt to take up the practice of writing again.
