The power of my blog
Thank you for the positive feedback about this blog. Apparently people (mostly relatives, but still) are learning some new things about me and laughing simultaneously. I am amazed that words typed by quick fingertaps on the keyboard can have these types of real effects. However, my dad reiterated a comment by someone that had both positive and negative implications: "So-and-so said that he/she has learned more about you from your blog than from 1o years of holiday functions!" I'm genuinely glad that I am communicating my ideas effectively via written word, but I aspire to eventually reach a similar level of communication through speech; the paradox is that one cannot speak too quickly (to avoid a loose tongue) nor too slowly (to avoid awkwardness and giving the impression of having a condition).
By the way, I know I'm not making good progress towards my goal of 30 entries in 30 days, but don't lose hope in me yet!
Peace and love, LG.
