What a mess…

it's a mess...

I have been looking at this blog from a “reader” point of view, and… oh my goodness, what a mess!!!!

I keep changing topics: one day I post computer stuff, like howto’s and tech tips, then I skip over and talk about music, then again I whine and whimper with my personal thoughts…

There is no overall direction, no central thread, no main subject… posts are pretty much unrelated, a bunch of disconnected thoughts that simply happen to meet in this common container.

But, if I stop long enough to think about it, I must admit that this should be no real surprise.

This is exactly how I am.
This is truly how my current life looks like: a cluster of unrelated events that clog up my days and make me skip constantly between my job, my passions, my duties, my worries and my ideas…

No, this blog is not just a mess… it’s a faithful picture of my life.
