Good night and good luck

Firstly, I would like say that though this blog was borne out of wanderlust and travel, it has inevitably become an extremely personal platform from which I regularly broadcast where I have been, what I have been doing, and more often than not, how I have been feeling. It’s a public blog which I’ve made accessible via web link from my Facebook page, available to all and sundry whom I consider my friends. All of my joy, sorrows, anger, and frustrations in all its shapes and sizes are cast here for the entire world to see. I know some close friends read it regularly to get updates on my life without me spending hours on details, and random people who trawl the blog community sometimes read it as a form of entertainment. I don’t filter my content, nor consider my audience. Some things might make you laugh, make you cringe, or perhaps make you cry. Obviously that is not my aim but generally I just write whatever I want. Nevertheless, the point I’m trying to make is, it is a public page, and I realize that just like anything that is public, people can choose to read it or not. It is like changing the channel if you don’t like what you see on TV, or turning the radio off if you don’t like the DJ or music. Very recently I had to delete a post which clearly offended deeply, and received a very long message telling me so. There were clearly many misunderstandings and character judgements associated with it, and but it is far too complex to relate, so I’ve decided not to delve into them at all. Since this is my blog and I would have loved to leave that post here, I do not want to go to sleep at night knowing that a certain post could be read over and over to infuriate anyone even further. So the last thing I will say is, if anything written here upsets you, please do yourself a favour, and stop reading.
