So, how do you do this? I'm a rookie at this and have never liked being a rookie at anything so you'll have to excuse my shaky start. Well, you don't have to, but I would like it if you did.
I've been perusing through blogdom for a few months now and am impressed with how many clever, creative, smart people there are. I'm here to make sure that the not-so-clever, not-as-creative, less-than-brilliant of us in the populace have a say. But I'm not really sure yet what it is I want to say. Sometimes my mind is just full of small inspirations and sometimes it's full of...goo! I'm not afraid to share either. Of what edification will this be? I don't know. I believe the impact of an action or a word can't be measured by the doer of the act or the speaker of the word, but only by the receiver. Let me explain. Let's say I have a friend named Joe. Every time I stop to talk to Joe I give him a jab on the shoulder, (you know, the way guys do when they want the other guy to know there's some affection being shared here.)and he returns the favor. Now let's pretend it's been 6 months since I've seen Joe and we suddenly meet in the aisle at the grocery store and, of course, I give him the customary jab, only this time he shrieks in agony and knuckles to the ground in pain. I say to him "C'mon Joe, that didn't hurt!" only to find out in the ambulance on the way to the hospital that Joe is suffering from a debilitating form of bone cancer. The same blow I'd given him a hundred times in the past snapped a bone in his arm. Something had changed below the surface. Had I known his inner condition I wouldn't have hurt him. Sooo, (how did I end up down THIS trail? And what are all these rabbits doing here?) I guess what I'm saying is, things are always changing below the surface of our lives. Yours and mine. I'm going to let you in on some of mine.
