And so it begins...

You know, five minutes ago I was all excited about starting this blog. And now I'm faced with this giant empty field just waiting for me to type in something really profound or insightful or at least mildly entertaining. And it's just so not happening. I pop into Lisa Samson's blog now and then, and she's really got it down. And she manages to make the weirdest things so interesting, and writes so well about all these little thoughts she has. Which is why her books are so awesome; she is A Writer for sure. Whether or not I get to join her in those ranks remains to be seen.

This whole blog phenomenon is really something. Same with websites. Think of your great-great-great-great grandparents, living back in the 1800's, and how many people knew them. Their family, their neighbors, the other townfolk. And now fast-forward to 2005 and people in Taiwan can read this totally useless information about a not-at-all-well-known author. Our great-great-great-great grandparents probably hadn't even heard of Taiwan. It's mind-boggling.

Time to sew a button on my husband's shirt. If you've been here, please leave a little note. There's nothing worse than shouting into the vast expanse of cyberspace and getting nothing back but the echo of your own blog....

Blessings and grace,
