Yesterday’s post was about fresh starts. Here we are at the beginning of another new month, another fresh start, and the last month of 2010.
The NaBloPoMo theme for the month of December is Zeitgeist. In our day by day writing, we are asked to capture the mood of our culture and our life as it exists right now. I started writing the past few days before I even knew the theme for the month. Zeitgeist gave me direction.
I did not intend to write every single day in December, but I felt a strong need to talk about my life and thoughts. I like the self-discipline of writing daily.
According to Wikipedia,
Zeitgeist is the general cultural, intellectual, ethical, spiritual, and/or political climate within a nation or even specific groups, along with the general ambience, morals, sociocultural direction, and mood associated with an era
That about covers everything, doesn’t it? So in the spirit of Zeitgeist, I will continue writing throughout this month. I love having a ready-made theme on which to focus my rambling mind. It will be interesting to me to see what I concoct for this blog.
How would you describe the influence of Zeitgeist in your own life? Where is it taking you?
A hui hou!

I love it when you post daily – miss you when you don’t.
Thank you so much for those words, Pamela! Sometimes I think I’m writing to the wind, so I think most bloggers need someone to remind them that their rambling thoughts ARE being read. It’s more difficult during the school year, of course, and next week is the last week of the fall semester. But I have some ideas floating around in my head – so you’ll probably be seeing more of me.
