Daily Prompt – If you had to choose between being able to write a blog (but not read others’) and being able to read others’ blogs (but not write your own), which would you pick? Why?
This past week I have looked through the windows of homes in Turkey and Greece; visited the Churchill Museum in London, gone kayaking in Austrailia and mountain biking in New Zealand. I have learned about the pain and humiliation of bipolar disorders and about the inside of mental hospitals. I know where to get a tattoo in Ireland. I saw a master quilter finish an antique quilt and turn it into a work of art. If my hands are ever bound with duct tape, I know how to free myself and I know what to pack to survive a zombie apocalypse. I’ve visited museums throughout Italy and gone diving with sharks. I’ve acquired some wonderful recipes and learned how to make my lips plumper.
I don’t want to choose between writing a blog and reading the offerings of other bloggers, but if the threat was dire enough, I would choose to continue reading blogs from around the world; going, doing, seeing things I may never experience otherwise.
However, now that I know what to pack, nothing short of a zombie apocalypse will keep me from writing my blog, too.
