Okay obviously I’ve been lacking in the blog department recently. I’m actually starting another blog with a friend in Pennsylvania specifically in the area of worship. I’ll link there when its ready to go public. But that got me thinking about blogging again.
Originally I had stopped blogging for an extended period intentionally to give myself a little “Sabbath” from it. But then I just lost all interest in it. I stopped liking it.
In that process, I discovered something interesting: the pen is mightier than the computer.
It’s true — at least for me.
Typing reduces the mind to rational thoughts, buttons, and a series of one’s and zero’s.
But the pen…. when the smell of ink rolling out of a Soft Grip Bic pen reaches my nose, it’s similar to the reaction a man has from sawdust from cutting wood or smoke from firing a gun…. it’s like, “Yea. I did that.” When I write with a pen, its like creativity sparks from my imagination. The pen gives a great sense of creation to the author. Or at least to me. It’s like I can look at what I wrote and can think, “Yea, I’m did that.” There’s more power in the simple things.
Life is richer because of the simple life. Maybe that’s something we can apply to other areas.
