That’s the question I asked myself this morning as I pondered the ten + years I have been blogging. What purpose does it serve? Would anyone even notice if I stopped?
Would I even notice?
Well, I’ll think about that later. There is work to do.
I was out on the back porch/deck, performing one of the rituals of Spring cleaning and getting it ready for a little family get together on Monday, observing the “look but don’t touch” rule.
As I began that two-hour process, I spied a large snail about four feet. (1.219 meters) along a downspout and still heading up, albeit slowly.
Why would a snail do that?
I took a photo and put it on Instagram with that question and a witty friend responded, “Following the example of the itsy bitsy spider” who had apparently already made it to the top.
Great answer, but I think there may be more to it. But then again, maybe not.
As to why I blog? Simply put, I blog to amuse myself and if I ever get someone else to chuckle, think, or sing along, all the better.
I’m still making myself chuckle, think and sing, so I guess I’ll march on.
BTW… I did pluck the snail off the aluminum and gently place it on moist, terra firma under a shrub.
