...why I created this blog. It seems a little strange posting one's thoughts in the public domain. It's not that I'm particularly private, but I still feel the sting of discovering in my late teens that my little diary with the lock on it had been purloined by my three younger brothers. After picking the tiny lock, the three of them spent hours in hiding reading about what guy on any given day I had a crush on, the contents of the notes he had sent me, who I loved, who I hated, etc. My life laid bare. Those little snoops. Since then, rather than commiting my secrets to paper, I tell all and let the chips fall where they may. I'm hoping this blog thing will cure me of this insatiable desire to spill my guts. Writing takes a hell of a lot longer than blabbing, so hopefully I will give more pause to my cathartic ramblings.
Anyway, enough of this tripe. Should anyone stumble across this, Happy New Year and all the best in 2007. This past year (2006) had some bad mojo working. Deaths and illness outnumbered births and weddings in the family. I'm hoping for a little more happy and a lot less sad this coming year.
