Once again, yesterday afternoon, I escaped the madding crowds to survey Lyonesse from atop Godrevy headland. After reading some amazing poetry my thoughts turned to the various posts that I've read this week and in particular a piece by Debi concerning female bloggers. Are women bloggers only there to fem-up the blog world with our titivating commentary on handbags. Oh please!
So why do I like certain blogs - I don't stick to one theme, sex, religion, taste etc. What is it that has drawn me to these people?
A while ago I had a conversation with Maxine at Petrona about my lightbulb theory. I believe that we all have one. We can all walk into a room of strangers and quickly establish who we would like to talk to and I would even go as far as saying that sometimes there is a feeling of instant dislike (and it's not usually wrong).
So in essence I think that we all walk around with an invisible lightbulb above our heads. Some glow dimly, and others shine in colours that appeal to our inner radar system. Some give off 'fuck off' vibes and others draw us in and make us feel at home.
Apparently, for me, it still works through the power of the written word. Wow!
I would just like to say that just for today I would like to be an honourary American. I know that I said that I wouldn't mention football - but did you see the match last night? Puts a whole different light on the expression 'up your bum' and the Italians are just about due another tomato-ing!
