Blanche Dubois was on to something. I can’t say I’ve often relied on others’ kindness, but maybe that’s why I’m so bowled over when a good turn suddenly appears in my path.
I stumbled downstairs this morning, made a cup of tea, and poured a bowl of Post’s Great Grains cereal (raisins, dates, and pecans!) to fortify myself for my upcoming water aerobics class. Then, bowl in hand, mug by my side, I settled down for a ramble through my favorite blogs.
The first one I opened was Arkansas Patti’s The New Sixty ,a writer I know you’ll enjoy if you’re not already a fan. Instantly my tea was forgotten and my cereal destined for mush. There for all to see was an image of my book (find a link to the right of this column) and a generous and very thorough review.
When the facilitator in my writing group suggested I try blogging, I had no idea how much I would enjoy it, or how much it would widen my world. This is social media at its best, a place where you can encounter and interact with some remarkable people.
