On what's left
It's snowing out. The sky is blue. Walking to work I see spring flowers blooming through the lawns. My ears hurt. The robins shiver. And yet, daffodils!
I am all out of blog posts and so walking along I keep my eye out for new ones, but I find only a tour of old blog posts.
I wrote about that eagle. I wrote about how when people add on to their house around here they make it uglier on the outside and prettier on the inside. I wrote about the "Hippies use the backdoor" sign. I wrote about the dogwalkers joining me on my path. I wrote about the river construction. I wrote about that graffiti there. I wrote about being late and the vicissitudes of time. I wrote about that cat. I wrote about all this stuff, every shrub and house and squirrel and riverboat, every fleeting thought, every dream and complaint and moment of wonder. I have covered this river down to its sandy bottom and I have covered all these people walking around into the last secret pockets of their souls. I have written about every last thing other than having written about every last thing.
Which I have taken care of now.
Luckily the world changes.
If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.
I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!
One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.

Yeah but you never wrote about bocci ball--wait, oh yeah you did. Hmmm...you never wrote about Bob Dylan! I didn't read one thing--dang it! You *did* write about Bob Dylan. Popcorn! I don't recall anything about popcorn! Do you have a a concordance where I can look it up? Popcorn! Please, there's a lot to say about it, especially during an election season.ReplyDelete
Popcorn? You mean the song? I'll get to work on it.ReplyDelete
