Are Three Posts a Day Legal?

So. I have been soaking in George MacDonald's fairytales lately. I have been reading Leanne Payne's "Real Presence" as well. I have entered blogland and have been trying to "swim to the surface" there... Today, they all converged.

Judy Hougen had a post, recently, where she pondered and posed the question "why do we blog?" Before today, I would have said, "Easy. For me it is because I am a stay-at-home mom and I am tired of cornering adults when I can and downloading all I am reading/learning/thinking onto them." Blogging has been for me a perfect answer to that problem. My thoughts get air, I get a sense of community and I am still able to be fully present here, at home. I can pause blogworld when things need attention here; and the peace of home is maintained. But that answer did not fully plumb the depths of blogging for me. After my musings today, I think I am getting there.

To me, blogging is like walking in Fairyland. It accesses that part of me that is constantly wondering and percolating and walking with God all day, but does not always get to the surface OR get to be expressed to other people. People in blogland are "disembodied" and not as tangible as when we are together in person; sort of like feeling a fairy in a flower, but not being able to actually see it. I feel like my walking in blogland is helping me to strengthen my inuitive journey; to walk not so much by sight, how someone's face may look after I say something, but to walk more in being and trust, letting the feedback come as it will. John Eldredge's words, "be who you are and let others deal with it," (from "Wild at Heart", I think) has come to mind a lot as I journey here.

It has also made me more aware of the separation and interplay of the unconscious and conscious minds of myself. To sense and understand which one may be at work; and to see their mutual benefits.

Anyway. This has gotten rambly and somewhat confusing, but isn't that the way in Fairyland?

Hey friend!

I heard a song from a friend's CD tonight at her birthday party. She wrote it for the three children she nannied for (for 8 years!). It was beautiful - full of remembrances of their time together. The children's voices were dubbed over occasionally - so adorable and funny. At one point she talked about how they had led her to a fairyland...Haven't heard that word in years - how interesting that it should arise twice in 24 hours. Hmmmm...
