“I personally believe we developed language because of our deep inner need to complain.” — Jane Wagner
In some respects, the need to blog fits this idea above about language. Specifically, why wouldn’t one blog, unless they needed to get something off of their chests? Or, for that matter, if they couldn’t find the language, where would the blog posts come from?
And sometimes, life happens so fast, that finding the time to reflect upon them becomes as scarce as the time it takes to blog those thoughts that arise from the reflection.
That’s kind of what happened.
As John Lennon expressed: Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.
But plans have changed. I can’t even begin to explain why, or how.
We are back. Today I have to introduce my newest crop of 5th Graders to their Writer’s Notebooks for the year. Part of the deal is that I have to share mine. My “notebook” hasn’t had anything put in it since my last post in April.
