Inward Looking

Looking back on my last two or three days weeks of posting, it strikes me that I may have become just a tiny bit self-absorbed.

Just a tiny bit.

But I don't get our society's condemnation of self-reflection. I think it's important to examine our inner selves. Our motives. Our feelings. Internal focus helps you, and it's not hurting anybody else. I can't imagine the the instance where someone would be so lost in their own moody troubles that serious harm might come to another person as a result.

I mean, you'd have to be a complete and utter moron to let that happen.


  1. If you can't use blogs for (among other things) self-reflectino, then I think many people aren't exactly clear on what blogs are for. :)

  2. I see no reason why I blog *shouldn't* be about self-reflection. There's nothing self-absorbed about injecting yourself into your internet diary.

  3. Personally, I come here for the Ragnell content. If I want not Ragnell or other than Ragnell I can visit other places, but when I want pure Ragnell this is the first stop. What you describe as "self-absorbed" might be better described as "giving your readers what they come here for." You're maintaining our trust in the Ragnell brand name as a reliable source of all things Ragnell, and we faithful readers thank you for that.

    Also, kudos on your wise appreciation of the value in self-reflection!

  4. "I observe there is a great deal of German music on the program. It is introspective and I wish to introspect."

    Kudos to anyone who knows where that's from without using Google. :-)
