the hats I wear

I am now home from the crazy week that was the American Council of the Blind convention. My cats are happy, and I can tell they did not eat much while I was gone. They are clingy and purry, and it is storming just for me.

I'm now trying to figure out how to wear various hats in my life. I discovered this week how much I miss wearing my disability advocacy hat. I also discovered how much I need to take it off from time to time. I grew up in the "sighted world," and that is my home. How do I mesh all of htese things that I do?

For a long time I have flirted with the idea of starting another blog specifically for theology topics. But every time I consider it seriously, I shrink back from the idea. I begin to feel like this would create the impression that I'm trying to live two lives. Perhaps the only person who would feel that impression is me; but that still matters. I somehow need to manage my various pieces of life so that I don't feel separated from my own self. So I always come back the same decision: posting various topics in one blog because they are all a part of who I am as I live in this house with my three cats lounging around on the beds.

More to come in the days ahead, as the cobb webs clear...

about the theology blog...
I actually don't think that's entirely true. I thinkk the good news is if you started a blog dedicated to theology it might find you more people who are interested in that topic who might not come to a blog that is a mixture of things, not because eventually they might not want to learn about the person behind the blog but because sometimes when people visit a blog they are looking for something specific. For example, there are blogs I go to because I know they're dedicated to a specific music artist or strictly about music. I go there for that info. So with a theology blog you could potentially find people who come specifically for your views on the theology, and with their comments it's possible you could learn more about that aspect of life. Just some thoughts, for what they're worth. But even if you create a theology blog that's specifically about theology that doesn't mean you couldn't double post those things in here if you have a following here who would like to read it.

A Second Blog for a Purpose
This would not seem like fisioning your life in my book. You could have a second blog for theology, and perhaps put it on a filter here for those of us who would also be interested.
I under the "being raised in the sighted" world reference. Often times I do not think I quite fit in either "world." I have friends across the spectrum, but perhaps I am unwilling to be compartmentalized.
