The Elusive First Blog Post

     For me, creating a blog has been an elusive beast.

     It’s something I’d meant to do years ago, but instead I raised children, finished graduate school, adopted rescue dogs, worked fulltime, then part time, then fulltime, and now part time again. I planted a garden, rearranged furniture, threw birthday and graduation parties, played Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny, went out to dinner, walked in the woods and on the beach, travelled, wrote, read, and even did the dishes and the laundry now and then.

     All along, when something weird or amazing would happen, like I’d be tapped by a ghost at a haunted old theater, or my daughter would touch Hadrian’s Wall and understand for the first time how big and how small the world actually is, or my dog would say, “Thank you,” in English, I would think, “That’s funny. Wouldn’t that make a great blog post?”

     So now, going forward, whenever anything amazing or weird happens, I can share it here, and I hope your weird and amazing stories will echo back to me.

  1. Are you getting up the courage to tell us about another really weird happening like the one where we saw, in the rippling water, the girl wearing a blue dress, who had drowned a over a hundred years ago?

  2. Kristin, it’s official. If Erica has commented on your blog, then your blog is ON THE MAP. She outed my little blog many years ago. 🙂 So glad you jumped in! 🙂
