Reading blogs is a real personal pleasure for me. I've always been something of a voyeur....I even considered becoming a real estate agent because I love to see into people's lives, to be inside their homes and see how they live. Reading blogs, especially the ones I have categorized in my bookmarks in a folder called "Home," has satisfied that voyeuristic need while also making me feel like I know those bloggers a little bit. I've even become friends with some of them.
It was with great sadness that I read on The Women's Room about the death of a blogger who I've enjoyed for sometime now. Elspeth Thompson wrote about life in a renovated train car, about sustainability, her family, and her dogs. So simple, so beautifully done. However, that small glimpse into her life didn't reveal the deep sadness she suffered from. My heart goes out to her family and especially her child.
