"I don't talk to people I know..."
This from Larry David on Curb Your Enthusiasm after becoming a part restaurant owner and his wife Cheryl incredulously commenting "You're gonna talk to people?". To which Larry replied, "I don't talk to people I know; now people I don't know, I'll talk to."
Actually, I love to talk. No, not in that "yenta" who knows everything sort of way, but to chat, get to know people. That's why blogging held an allure for me. Well, let me backtrack on how I jumped on the quickly departing blog train. I read The Long Island Press cover article about Pia's Courting Destiny blog and went to check it out for myself whereby I posted a comment and was just drawn in from there. I like a good read and found some of the blogs encountered to be intriguing in the way that a good book draws you in. Some, like Doug's Waking Ambrose are an education and just plain fun! I also wanted a creative outlet - something for just me. No waterpainting with the kids - just me!
Now, I admit to being reticent on sharing any written thoughts publicly (after all I am not a writer, maybe my vocabulary's not broad enough), but with a little generous encouragement from some kind experienced bloggers - both Pia and Doug, poof - I have a blog!
Now hopefully the people I don't know will become those that I do.
