I made a promise to myself to write about whatever I want in this journal and that is what you are going to get. I used to have themes for blogs and tried to edit the things into something I had pictured in my mind's eye and I found that I would just stop writing because it never became what I envisioned. Now I just write.
For West is where we all plan to go some day. It is where you go when the land gives out and the old-field pines encroach. It is where you go when you get the letter saying: Flee, all is discovered. It is where you go when you look down at the blade in your hand and the blood on it. It is where you go when you are told that you are a bubble on the tide of empire. It is where you go when you hear that thar's gold in them-thar hills. It is where you go to grow up with the country. It is where you go to spend your old age. Or it is just where you go.
Robert Penn Warren
We either use rhetorical figures effectively, or we do not use them at all. If we use them it is because we presume our reader is capable of catching them, and because we believe that we will appear more incisive and convincing. In this case, we should not be ashamed of them, and we should not explain them. If we think that our reader is an idiot, we should not use rhetorical figures, but if we use them and feel the need to explain them, we are essentially calling the reader an idiot. In turn, he will take revenge by calling the author an idiot.And I don't just write here either. I have have short read Canadian politics blog here on Tumblr and a long read blog hosted by Wordpress called Parliament.Blog that focuses on the procedure and law surrounding the Parliament of Canada. This blog, more or less, is my personal blog with stories and insights from my daily life.
