It's been over a year since I posted anything on this blog, and I don't think the symbolism of an entirely silent 2012 is as beautiful and poignant as it is sad and discouraging. So here's a little throat clearing to keep my voice ready.

I've watched as several blogs, that were part of my regular reading, have winnowed down to archives and 404 errors. The saddest examples are those small blogs with light readership, that had something to say but felt ignored. They remind me of the timid introvert at a party who works up the courage to add something to the conversation. They speak so softly that they're interrupted and no one notices. So they stop halfway thru their sentence and look around with a nervous smile pretending it didn't hurt.

I've never felt ignored here, but I do need a drink. That'll get me talking.


  1. Looks like I arrived at the right time - please do talk!

    I came here via a link in Fritinancy - anything that Nancy links to is likely to be worth checking out.

    I'll add you to my daily 'language & linguistics' list, and hope for more good things like the story of AcipHex.

    1. Well, thanks for stopping by. I just hope I can get back to writing the occasional post that Fritinancy will consider worth sharing. It's always an honor.

  2. Which metaphorical drink would get you talking?


Thanks for reaching out.
