When I started this little blog, I didn’t know how to add pictures to posts.
Very patient people tried to teach me. I tried to follow. It was in vain.
I was so jealous of people who could combine images and words, to deliver that one-two punch that a perfect post carries.
The path of jealousy generally leads me down the path of self-righteousness.
“Only lazy bloggers rely on pictures. I don’t NEED pictures. I’ll just use words. I’ll use the most perfect words, the ones that will evoke exactly what I want them to in the reader. And they’ll never realize the images were missing.”
And then, thank christ, I figured out how to add pictures.
Sometimes, I like to think I can still crank out an evocative post, completely sans pictures.
And sometimes, I am thrilled when I find the perfect image for the words I’ve managed to string together.
But sometimes, the words just get in the way.
