I got an e-mail from one of my oldest friends who wrote:
“I don't understand blogs. Are they to be viewed as online diaries?
”I can't imagine anyone giving a s*** or taking the time to read about anything I had to say.
”I find it all hubristic.”
To which I wrote:
“You may be right.”
Actually, writing this blog has been very helpful to me already. It’s allowed me focus better. Since I'm tired a lot, the blog has become, dare I say it, my daily meditation.
Oh, no! I had the ghost of 1970s Bill Cosby lurking in my head. “Be careful or you might learn something” he used to say on Fat Albert. I don’t want to be that parental about it, but I am trying to provide a site where if you’re not absolutely riveted by Lydia stories (but you WOULD be if you knew her- she’s also VERY charming), you can click on a hyperlink and find out a little about Mother’s Day, e.g.
Tomorrow: Hubris! Or as Jack Nicholson once said in a movie, “You want the hubris? You can’t handle the hubris!”
