Okay, so NaBloPoMo is shorthand for National Blog Posting Month. It’s sort of a sendup of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) wherein you spend every day writing several hundred words and complete a novel at the end of November. NaBloPoMo is a little more manageable in that you post on your blog every day for a month. Because I’m in the midst of my thesis writing, I didn’t want to get involved in NaNoWriMo this year (although, it’s something I’m contemplating in the future). And honestly, I didn’t even really want to get involved in NaBloPoMo…but a couple of friends posted something today and so I felt obligated, as a blogger, to at least attempt it. So this is the first of 30 blogs in a row. It’s not much…but it gives you something to look forward to for the next 29 days.
Sometimes I find myself musing about the dead. I wonder about how they are, where they are, and what they’re up to. I believe in an afterlife, just not necessarily heaven. I believe that souls return to earth in some form. I wish sometimes that we were able to contact them, I think it would be an amazing experience and possibly take the fear out of dying. I don’t really fear dying, but I don’t want loved ones to be devastated by my passing. I’d rather they simply accepted it as a part of existence and celebrated the good things I’ve done in life. Provided they can think of any 😀 But as it is, I think that part of my life is far in the future and we’ll cross that bridge when get to it.
See you in the funny papers! (wherever they may be)
