The title of this post is from the John Lennon song of the same name from his final album (while he was alive), Double Fantasy. I think the title is rather fitting. Why? Because I really want to make an effort to start blogging again. My old blog over on blogspot was fun. I actually developed a okay following and it was a positive experience. Unfortunately, I starting working in the film industry and I just stopped. Then, I quit that job and started again. Then, I started grad school and stopped again.
So you may be asking yourself, why should I start again? I'll probably just stop. You may be right, but I'm trying to be optimistic that I can keep this going. I actually am more intrigued by the tumblr template and I think it encourages easy and quick posts. I also need an outlet to write and post stuff. I still keep my private journal and still am trying to write my memoir (yes I'm writing a memoir), but why not have another public forum? I think it's worth it. Especially to post my Oscar and Beatle thoughts.
Most importantly, I feel like this is a great time to start again. I just finished my nonprofit development and leadership class yesterday, which amazingly was more inspiring than any class I ever took in grad school. People were actually trying to do things and take chances. We had discussions that were actually engaging and challenging. It made me think about the direction of my life. There was this excitement at the end that I haven't felt in a while. You only live once, so you got to spend it being passionate about something. Otherwise, what is the point of living?
To quote a lyric from the John Lennon song that takes the name of this post, "Let's take a chance and fly away somewhere".
I'm finally ready to start over and start blogging again. Hope you'll join me for the magical mystery tour...
