there's a little note on blogger-buzz [you'll find that on your blogspot dashboard] suggesting folks might like to write a post on what blogging means to them.
so here goes.
for me, it's quite simply a gentle and [relatively] environmentally friendly way of popping a message in a metaphorical bottle and setting it loose on the imaginary seas
the seals and whales or the whirled oceans
or getting my boots wet
every so often a bottle washes up on some distant shore
every now and then
a message finds its way back again
what i find truly enchanting about the whirled wide web is that what was developed as a communicatory tool for an armed force [the US Army] has become the instrument of friendships around the whirled
and i'm not so innocent that i don't think it's also a handy way of scanning the thoughts of the masses for information
so here's a wave to you too, Big Brother, wherever you are. i know it's not Big Sister watching, she's much too busy collecting up all those socks that get eaten by washing machines each week.
