When I can’t really talk about what I want to talk about.
I learned at an early age of the Internet that what one says on the Internet doesn’t go away as much as one thinks it might.
Then I got involved with Peter which changed the parameters again. He was in the middle of a divorce and so I was careful about what I said out on the World Wide Web. I didn’t want to cause him any grief or trouble that could be traced back to something I casually said.
The job at Del Rey added another layer of thinking of “Do I say this?” Because there were times that I really wanted to says some things that might be misconstrued. Adding the Star Wars lock on what I can say and all the NDAs (None Disclosure Agreements) I have signed over the years or Peter has signed that I am a part of, there became a lot I can’t talk about or when I can, I forget that I can now talk about it.
Now I am married to Peter and have a child of my own which again changed the parameters of what I say and don’t say.
I can feel safe that what I have said over the years if someone went back and looked at it, I would get a job or whatever. Caroline can read it safely.
I can say that I have always been honest out here on the Internet. If I typed it, I believe it when I typed it. If I found out I was wrong, I admitted it. I have held my tongue as others have libeled my husband and my friends. I don’t break confidences. As much as I might want to say something or correct something, I don’t. I learned that it doesn’t really help and I do know what is the reality of the situation(s).
So I continue to blog about my life and things I find interesting. And I hope others enjoy reading it.
There are just times that I wish I could say some things but I know better so I don’t.
I am grateful for the things I can talk about safely.
