Then I accidentally mentioned something about how I might answer that question today.
Why why why do I say these things and then make rash promises on my blog?!
Perhaps I can answer that tomorrow. Yes! I will answer that tomorrow!
Today we are answering the question of why this blog must be written.
We feel that this blog itself is its own answer to the question of why it must be written. Furthermore we don't actually have an answer to why it must be written. Though even as you read this a circle is closed. It must be written because you have come to this exact spot in the universe. Everything that is happening in the universe at this moment is a kind of destiny.
Yes, that is a horrible answer too.
To be honest, I despaired of any proper answer for any of this until I remembered the blogger's holy grail, the most powerful explanatory force in the universe. Yes, I remembered the ten-item list.
7. Oh, they'd like it plenty if I didn't write this blog!
8. Yes, fire burns, but it also illuminates. Which is my way of saying I am still just a bit afraid of the dark.
9. I took a holy vow to write the mega blog post of enlightenment. Each post, even this one, is part of my quest. One day I will write that post.
10. I sort of hate to say it, but if you don't know by now you never will.
