I’ve always loved to write and so the act of blogging is one that comes quite naturally to me. As a matter-of-fact, I have a well-document life’s record, words posted on a hidden pages in the depths of drawers forever lost to time. Once I got a computer, my thoughts raced across the screen to be saved in the box until one machine was replaced by another and /or the battery died. The opportunity today’s technology offers is so valuable for the safe-keeping and the sharing of ideas. How many good thoughts and well-turned phrases have been lost because they were given life before the support of blogging could offer them immortality?!
A retrospective written on July 16, 2013:
I wrote this short post, among my first in 2007 shortly after my home had burned to the ground in a fire that consumed all of my writing and research of some thirty years. That was in the days before the cloud. Everything was lost: every graduate paper, every lesson plan, every cherished book, every love letter, every picture of every member of my family…some already gone from this world never to be photographed again. Today, through technology, our words have much longer lives and far reaching effects. Choose them carefully; share them wisely.Share Online
