Blogging and the Inner Ear

I’m still feeling the need to engage in some pep talk regarding the blogging effort. As I think about it further, I see another reason for keeping at it. It’s been my experience that blogging sharpens my ability to hear my inner voices. Sometimes those voices are just meaningless noise. At other times, they can be very instructive--like now, when I’m in a slump.

The predominant voices of the moment are the self-critical ones. Those are the ones to watch out for, as any shrink would tell you. They’re forces of debilitation, and you have no recourse against them if you don’t hear them and understand them for what they are. If blogging can help that process—and I believe that it does—then that’s all the more reason to keep at it.
