Risking

Risk
Risk

It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt. And then things get real. And all the fun and games in the world is not worth it. At least it seems that way. For a while. Stepping back, some time later and you’ll see: of course it’s worth it. Not for the fun and games, but for life. Risk not, and you do not live. Risk, but risk wisely. And never something that does not belong to you.

You know what?

My old space was all fun and games. Never too serious, never actually taking a stand, trying not to offend anyone, trying to be as neutral as possible. But the blog was sort of like a side-dish. I had lists of movies, recipes, songs, bands, wines, websites. You name it. I had it. The blog was mostly random stuff I found online and wanted others to see too. The Impossible quiz, super cars – Ascari is still my favourite :), quizzes, personality tests… All that and more. Best 19 movies you didn’t watch in 2007-8-9 and there was a 2010 there waiting to happen. But wordpress is not fun (sorry wordpress). It looks like a serious blog and I’m supposed to either quit or adapt. I have trouble quitting or letting go of anything that once meant something to me. MSN spaces, Windows Live Spaces, no matter what it was called has been part of my life since 2005. One of my first posts was about the Da Vinci Code. Remember those days? How could I let go? How can I forget. It’s all here now but the pretty colours are gone, the history is lost, the magic has faded away.

But maybe, I could create something new, something serious, something important. Could this be the beginning of a beautiful friendship…?
