I started blogging today and my eldest sat next to me on the couch asking what I was doing. When I explained that I was writing, he asked who I was writing for and why I wrote. I told him that I wrote for myself and that my head has so many thoughts in it that I liked writing them down. Once they were out of my head and on (digital) paper I was able to concentrate better and focus on the more important things in my life, like my children.
Overhearing our conversation, my husband chuckled and said, "So it's like your pensieve." I guess that would be right :) A very public pensieve I guess, but my pensieve nonetheless ;)
