I wanted to check my memory on something, so I have been over here reading through the archives. It's unleashed a flood of memories (although, sad to say, has not provided the clear details I wanted on a particular incident).
I spend more time on Facebook these days. I'm blogging only occasionally, over at Wordpress. To say I'm blogging is perhaps a bit of a stretch. Mostly I'm doing links these days, when I do anything at all. I'm still transitioning after the death of my husband last year, and I'm also in an interesting season as a Christian convert, and so I'm taking more time in quiet, while I get my feet under me. Facebook's privacy settings are much appreciated. I like choosing whether something goes out to friends of friends, or just friends. For that matter, I'm sending more personal correspondence, one on one, these days. Not that I'm writing much, but what I'm doing is more often for a specific audience. That might change, of course. Life has its seasons.
But I wanted to see if I could still figure out how to log in, and post, over here, and I guess, in a way, I want to try to keep this old site alive a while longer.
And now that I've wasted a minute of your valuable time saying close to nothing... why don't you go play in the archives? Enjoy.
