Hellooooo.....(echoes in silence). It's really odd writing on a blog. Do I write as in a journal for myself or do I write to an unseen, unknown, probably non-existent audience? I will write to the audience - the hundreds of blogging fans in my mind that are just waiting for my next trivial bit of information! As I think about this and wonder who would possibly care what I have to say, I am reminded of some characters in The Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis - the Dufflepuds. They had a chief who mainly just stated the obvious, and all the rest would cheer after everything he said. It's one of the parts that always makes me chuckle, so here's a bit from the book:
"Visible we are," said one in a tasseled red cap who was obviously the Chief Monopod. "And what I say is, when chaps are visible, why, they can see one another."
"Ah, there it is, there it is, Chief," cried all the others. "There's the point. No one's got a clearer head than you. You couldn't have made it plainer."
Is that what I'm expecting? Thunderous applause for stating the obvious? I hope not...I really just want to get a few things off my mind and hopefully make a connection with a few other women. Maybe it's more like a group discussion, but I just don't know if the group is actually there! :)
Lord willing, I'll be back tomorrow with a new post.
