Each year on Gravity, My Enemy I’ve been setting aside a sort of “theme” that the year is based on. That theme has taken over the main focus of the Friday posts and has become the calling of this blog, and I want to tell you why it’s such an important facet of this blog.
Gravity, My Enemy is not like other blogs.
I’ve been racking my brain trying to describe what my goal on this site is. I know it inside of me, but I’ve never been able to put it to words. Until now.
This blog is a snapshot in my day to day life. Each message I send, whether poetry or non-fiction writing is a small piece of what I see on a day to day basis, and that’s well enough. It’s clear that it is, I imagine. But that doesn’t answer the question of the movements.
Each movement is a chapter of my own personal life, where you see the ups and downs and the things I face, but it didn’t start that way when GME was just a wee babe I simply wrote for the sake of writing. I needed to get my emotions out on something other than myself. It was beginning to feel unhealthy. Then I realized that exposing my own personal struggles connected with people in a way I didn’ think that it would. I didn’t know my personal trials would affect you so greatly. I didn’ know that the problems I faced were problems that you faced too.
So that is where I realized the purpose of the movements. These chapters are here for all of us, forever, to go back through when they want to seek inspiration or find hope. If you are going through today what I went through three years ago, you can find that here. You can see those feelings within me and you can find how I escaped them. That’s what this blog is for.
It is for you. Whoever you are.
Each movement of GME is meant for you, whenever you need it. Today, tomorrow, a decade from now, it will be here.
