Blogs: the new mega-therapy
5/5/2005 8:06:42 AM
Why pay a fortune to a shrink when you get all your frustrations out on a blog??
I've kept a journal for years. I go to CVS and buy those 6 X 9 five subject notebooks (in green, because it's a healing color)and it usually takes about two years to fill one up. I don't write every day -- just when something of note happens, or when I need to record an intuitive impression (e.g. an omen, like seeing a Snapple Sun on a 6'placard in the supermarket). I also record my favorite GRIPES of the moment: e.g. A member of my fiction writing group for whom I had prepared a sensationally scathing critique doesn't show up for the meeting. Yeah, well, you know, Freud said Homo Lupus Homini, man is a wolf to man, and isn't it better to be aware of our darker impusles??

So,my journals keep me sane (now that I no longer have a conventional shrink, and did I ever pay my dues); and at the moment I have about a dozen little notebooks collecting dust in my cabinet and will probably toss them soon because who wants to read entries of melt-downs from six years ago when the current ones are so much more interesting.

And now its welcome to the modern age of blogs. I've only written one or two blogs on authorsden, but this week has been so fraught with disturbances, I thought why not share them with the world? Following is my list:

1. My son's fiancee, coming apart trying to plan a wedding across the border (not important which border), wants to know why ten people on our guest list have not responded and can't we please call them. WELL, no way in hell I'll call because I DON"T LIKE THEM, and Uncle Murray looks like a bowling ball with eyebrows!! Jack Braston (pseudonym) has a crush on me, and when he has one too many, follows me around on his chubby little legs saying, "Let's dance Let's dance. YUCK!!!

2. I'm happy my son is marrying (again), but don't want to go to a wedding acrooss the border.

3. I have to have a hem made on my gown but have been procrastinating for three months.

4. I don't want to wear a black gown, and would rather wear a red one.

The list goes on, but will have to wait for another day. Thanks for listening. I feel much better.
