For years, I've written anecdotes in journals, mostly reactions to current events and reactions to passages I read. The earliest event I remember recording in my grade school diary was the assassination of Dr.Martin Luther King. More recently, I wrote about 9-11 and Obama's election. It's kinda old-fashioned now, but I still write letters - Christmas family newsletters and letters intended to encourage. Lately, most of my writing has religious overtones - maybe I'm just trying to be more aware of God's handiwork.
Occasionally I attach some of my ramblings and send out in emails to friends and family. The reply from one particular friend stuck with me - "You should write a blog."
Thanks, Carolyn Lease. I'm writing a blog.
