Still, every year between 2005 and pretty much now, I have had an undeniable need to get away, and so consequently, for 3 to 4 months at a stretch each year, I have just stopped, never logging onto LJ, dealing with email as little as is humanly possible, no tumblr, no twitter, only opening my laptop when compelled to. I have found this yearly running away to be problematic. I come back each time feeling like a stranger and yet, I do come back, which must mean this place matters to me.
And which also explains, to my mind anyway, why I continue to do 100_snapshots and why I do my own interpretation of the 365 photo project because they compel me to post photographs hopefully twice a week, but at least once a week in order to keep up with the my related mission101 tasks, so I can't just run away and, since I'm on LJ anyway, I read my f-list, which I really do miss doing otherwise.
December to like last mid-last week, was my running away time hopefully for this year as up until then, I had been struggling to get even those 2 little photo posts posted. Still, get them posted I have meaning I haven't spent 3 or 4 months completely gone, so I think my idea has worked, which proves to me yet again, how important mission101 has become to my life.
Again, thank you, Alex. Without you (and Livejournal) I never would have found this community which has been of such a benefit to me.
