Just a thought | this space and a prayer

Hello. Long time no see.
So, just a thought. Why not come back to this little space? I have grown too reticent about posting since I began uni some two years ago. Learning in an academic sphere has a way of often clamming up and even frightening one's spontaneity - it is so much easier to stick to a certain form or style and not put one's foot in the wrong place. But that also means lack of expressing one's growth, being inhibited and self-conscious and being a hoarder rather than a generous giver or sharer of the ideas one receives, by no merit of one's own.
There is also the learning that happens outside the classroom or the readings--it happens in one's interaction with people, in the joyous adventures and painful experiences of living life, sharing and talking about it. Just think about it. Blogging can be something quite special. Why should we confirm the lie, that blogging is dead - that people have no time to read. See, you are reading this.
And you is a very special person.
So, just a thought. Shall I come back?
I will trot off back to my next essay, but first...
I read this "Prayer Before Study" by Thomas Aquinas on a friend's instagram account today and it really fits well this season of my life. I hope that if you are in a similar place - or in whatever task you undertake - that this will be a blessing to you.
