Analogue October


Lately I've pretty much gone insane. Ironically the only thing that stops me succumbing to pure insanity is the recognition and acknowledgment of my own madness. Being purposeless has left me empty, and technology has catalysed that emptiness into something a lot darker. I've slipped. But I'm not here to preach the woes of our internet addiction. I'm too tired. Preaching about my vulnerabilities are the only thing that makes them real.

I'm here with what I hope is a solution. 'Blogging' doesn't make me happy any more. But writing always will. So I'm going to write. And it would be really nice if you'd write to me too. There is no theme, these are not submissions, I just need a little rehab, and it would be the most wonderful thing to keep your company in doing so. Let's be penpals. Tell me about yourself, about your life, tell me a story, the best conversation you ever had, the first time you ever cried over a lover. I'd love to hear from you, and I'll write you back too if you enclose a return address.

I always wanted to try and bring something new to the internet, but now I'm starting to come to terms with the fact that technology is at peak saturation. There's so little left that can be done with the tools we have, and any new tools that grow, remove a part of our humanity to exist. So maybe the only solution is time to bring something old back. Restore a bit of our souls. Plus my birthday is on the 7th October and life is too hectic to do anything for it, so it would be lovely to receive a little story or two through the post.

I'd like to post these letters on my blog but without names, addresses or context, just a collection of photographs, if you wouldn't mind. I don't even want to promote these posts, or try and garner attention. I just want to bring my blog back to what it always was. A little place for me to collect the thoughts and things that make me happiest. 


All my love always.

  4. Oh Katie! I'd love to write you another letter, although I don't want to look like a stalker! ahah :) Anyway, I'm so glad I found someone like you in the blogging world — so fond of writing! Your blog is definitely not about followers and exposure. I (and probably all of your readers) can sense that your speak with your heart in each and every piece you write. And I think it's pretty incredible that in our society driven by superficial things, we still get to read such amazing and heartfelt writings from someone who seems to value words.
