T.S Elliot in the Tradition Of The Individual states, "This historical sense, which is a sense of the timeless as well as of the temporal and of the timeless and of the temporal together, is what makes a writer traditional. And it is at the same time what makes a writer most acutely conscious of his place in time, of his contemporaneity."
A writer that is able to stay timeless I feel is important. That does not negate that fact that writers should keep up with the times and write about the experiences at the moment, but to be able to make it relate to any one of any age or of any time period is truly a skill. In order to learn from our past, we have to know what has happened in it. To have a writer who is "fully conscious of his place in time" as Elliot said is special. The writer is then aware of not only his inner thoughts but of what is going on around him/her.
For my blog, I want to discuss daily life experiences that either I or someone else have gone through and the lessons that were learned from them. I feel in order to do this efficiently it is important to know my place in time and understand that the reason some of these situations or experiences are happening is that of the time and place I am in physically and mentally. I need to understand my own thoughts as well as be sensitive and aware of the people and things around me. I would love to have people of any demographic to be able to understand what I discuss and or relate or apply it to their own life experiences. Being able to connect is important to me and I could only hope that my words would connect with the readers.
