I now have both Husband Joiner and Wife Joiner in my feed reader and I get such a treat out of it. First, I learned from Mr. Joiner about their scarecrow and saw a picture and then I read a poem from Ms. Joiner that mentioned the scarecrow at the end.
I don’t know that I’ve ever read two blog posts that struck me like that so hard, just from an aesthetic perspective. I mean, there are times when you are friends with a married couple where you experience an instant where you realize that they are sharing with you something that gives you a glimpse of how they share with each other when they are alone. And it has that effect of making you feel much closer to the two of them, but also gives you a hint of how there are depths of things that pass between them that you will never be a part of.
This was one removed from that. I feel like I’ve been let in on a moment they would normally only share with friends.
I don’t think often enough about how blogging works as an aesthetic form, as an art form, really.
But this makes me think about that.
I don’t know what to make of it, really. But I like it.
