I just want to say thank you. Thank you for stopping over here, even if it's just for a minute, even if you just scroll by fast and look at a couple of pictures and then click the back button on your browser. Hell, even if you don't read this. Thank you.
I blogged online a long time ago, long before it was probably even called blogging. I liked telling stories, writing, taking pictures, talking to other people. All of it. I did meet a lot of good people, some of these people I still talk to today. Some of them are probably looking at this right now. Mix tapes and care packages swapped, plane tickets purchased, millions of emails sent and received, all of that. But I just stopped one day and I don't know why. Life happened, just like it always does.
And here I am now. Back in the game. I've been lucky enough to be able to have my badge put on some of my most favorite blogs. Maybe you have come over here after seeing Sam's face on one of those blogs and you are wondering just what in the hell is an olive juice box. I don't know. It, like a lot of stuff, just popped into my mind one day. I had been wanting to start a blog for a long time but just couldn't come up with a name. And then, just like that, life happened and now here we are, you reading my words and me being really grateful this is all going on.
I know it sounds silly. This is parts of a life displayed on a computer screen. Your life, my life, an Internet connection and here we are. Like I said, I really do enjoy telling stories and writing, I just truly am thankful that I have people who are taking the time to be a part of it. Talking to yourself is never fun, even though I do it all of the time.
Oh, wall of words and no picture? NO WAY. Here's a picture of my kids from early in the summer. I swear to you, they both have the same dad and they both spent their early days in me. It just doesn't look like it, does it?
