Welcome All Who Wander Here

I thought about writing a blog about a year ago, long after it was cutting edge but not before everyone and their mother began writing one. I have a considerable amount of respect for people who can write well, especially those who have the talent to write about the mundane and the spectacular in an equally compelling way. I hope that my contribution will at least meet the middle ground. There are literally hundreds of millions of English language blogs dangling out in the ether that is the Internet. Ok, hundreds of millions plus one.


The impetus for this blog has been an invitation from Sharon Salzberg (or more accurately) through her assistant, to participate in a twenty-eight day challenge to follow the instruction in Sharon’s new book, Real Happiness and to report on the experience. Since I’m new to this blogging experience, I hope you will be gentle in your assessment of this experiment, encouraged to join me in the fun and generous in your commenting frequency.


I’m still trying to figure out this formatting process and I hope to provide links to other blogs I enjoy. Since this blog is beginning from such an honorable place, I will work diligently to keep it on course at least until the end of the challenge. That means I will endeavor to keep it clean, apolitical and respectful. For my friends, you know that’s asking a lot from me.


Now for the love of God, someone please leave a comment. It will really make my day.

    Thought I would tell you I am just finishing “Last Night in Twisted River: A Novel”.
    It really rambles and too long. I am definitely going to complete it.

    It is still so cold and I have been awful about walking Sophie/AKA “Devil Dog”.
    Still love her. Mom

  5. I find that people with blogs are generally attractive people, sometimes with big hair. You asked for a comment. Next time ask for an intelligent comment.
