Say "Hello" Sometime

Thanks for reading my blog.
When I began writing the blog I thought, in the first weeks, that I was writing it for myself. Then, through the kindness of Jen Lemen's blog http://jenlemen.com I began to get visitors. May I ask a favor of you? You remember that I live a quiet life in a backwater? I don't get out of this area much and depend on reading the news and blogs on the internet and watching "West Wing" for most of my information. Therefore, if you wouldn't mind, please leave a comment for me. Just say "hello" sometime. You don't have to say anything dramatic or devastating, just let me know what you are thinking, if are up to it. Thanks.

Hi! Interesting point you've made in this post, basically, about the way reading bloggs basically becomes just that,us reading rather than posting comments and becoming community through them, alot of the time. For those people living in the back end of no where or the middle of somewhere (but for some reason stuck indoors there) they can be the line to the outside world, I guess. Perhaps it's time it all got a little more interactive through the comments sections.

I love blogging. Since we left church almost 4 years ago it has become a big part of how I stay connected to what is happening in the bigger picture. It seems to be much more honest than the perspective I was getting before because bloggers tend to be very open and honest with their feelings, doubts, fears, etc.

So, exactly where is Backwater?

Thanks for your comments, O Brave Ones.
Where is the backwater? It's really in the Backwater. The Bolshoi Ballet came near here and my newspaper editor pal said the headline should be "Second String Comes to Backwater." That's when it all began...

Backwater can be a state of mind, too. As there say, "distance matters less" now with our technological connectedness. I live in a very blue enclave in a red state, yet LP from Manhattan comments that every performance gets a standing ovation here.
