Tens of Things

My renewed interest in this blog comes from an idea I had in that pre-sleep haze one gets. I get anxious when writing a new post because my mind is a constant, critical editor. A post that should only take five minutes may take twenty. Or more. I wanted to find a common theme that would keep me focused on topics and I came up with the idea of lists. My mother raised me on list-making. She was raised by her mother on list-making. There is a vague strand of OCD passed down through the generations and when I feel disconnected or unmotivated I find that list-making can ground me.

This blog will be lists. I will aim for ten objects to each list. The topics can be anything. You can even suggest topics if you like, but currently I have a list of things I would like to list.

This is starting to go down a weird rabbit hole so I’ll just leave this here.



I decided to give my blog a makeover. This means I have to start posting again. That is the only logical conclusion.
