Re-purposing light

KittenI’ve had this blog for several years. It started as a reblogging kind of place, trying to find positive news in the world and blog about it. It went dormant for some time, due to my diagnosis of “so busy” syndrome.

I was considering starting a new blog and actually considered “sobusy” as a site name. After some consideration, I felt I could re-purpose this blog and start writing on different topics.

Given the broad definition of the word light, the blog Light Times can cover a multitude of subjects. Some of the more pressing subjects for me are how to become lighter, both physically and spiritually, and how to bring light in to the activities of my life – marriage, parenting, work, self.

Part of the objective is for me to have an accountability to the “public”, or those who stumble upon this blog.  I will be posting some personal details in an effort to lose weight (of the body) and to lose weight (of responsibility) that stems from the so busy syndrome.

I am not comfortable with writing, and will indeed make mistakes.  It may be that not one person ever reads this, and that is okay. Rather an anonymous blog in cyberspace than a Facebook post that is read by friends and people whom I forgot were my friends.

Yours in light,
