I recently visited junemoon’s blog and found myself envious of her tags. Very strange, you say. I know, it is a little strange to envy someone’s tags — perhaps a sign of our blogging times?
I was envious because I was seeing her tags as words to describe her and her interests, and I thought, wow, what are the words that describe my interests? The question leapt to mind with a pang as I looked at my own tag cloud, with so many tags of mental illness. Yes, that has been a strong focus lately — providing information, ending stigma, speaking out. And yes, I feel good about those posts, and that they do accurately reflect a sincere interest in me. And yet, there is so much more to me. Maybe one blog cannot possibly express all of my muses. Already, I do have two, but I rarely post on the other one; it is more like a record of a particular project of mine, which in many ways has ended, though it has also simply evolved into the realm of alternative healing. Anyway, there are all these parts of me that long to be expressed.
So, I am inspired to post a list of tags that express it all. I may try to work these in to more of my posts on here, so these are the ones that show up in my tag cloud. I guess I could call these my “dream tags”:
change, comfort, connections, craving, curiosity, belonging, depression, faith, gratitude, healing, home, identity, confusion, imagination, inspiration, memories, mood, mortaility, nature, new beginnings, personal musings, perspective, reflection, rituals, seasons, spirituality, winter, ancient wisdom, rituals, ceremony, deep
So, what are YOUR dream tags?
