The best by anyone, anywhere, they say.This is not the Best Blog in the World. (Obviously.) But the journal in my head is something else. Each entry is wisdom's cream. Were I to actually publish this in-my-head blog the whole of humankind would swoon as mothers would throw newborn infants at me screaming, "take him, he's better off with you!"
I'll have to settle for an unevenly updated journal of links and brief entries. No manna, though I wanna. Or maybe, I can exhale a bit - I'm encumbered enough by thoughts-as-ballast.
Despite evidence: Better writers Wendy and Sarah were nice enough to publish a post or two of mine in a book modestly titled The Very Best Weblog Writing Ever By Anyone Anywhere In The Whole Wide World Vol. 1 and I'm embarrassed by the inclusion, but I'm proud of the writing that's been included.
Away from my keyboard, I "write" exemplary posts to my mind's blog. It occurs to me that a shunt for the mentally unpublished would be nicer software for me to help build.
Mai's entry is bound to be better. (And hey, honey, I might just pick up a needle and thread and, er, damage myself artistically in a joint effort. It'd be fun!)
For the curious, I think the volume includes either or both of these stories.
