Getting started on things...

Yesterday was my 47th birthday. In the usual perpetual spirit of things like birthdays and New Year's resolutions, I FINALLY started writing on this blog. I had only set up the account a YEAR AND A HALF AGO, which was TECHNICALLY a start of sorts. But not anything substantial.

So here goes.

To be honest with you, I'm not 100% behind the concept. First of all, the word 'blog" is quite a warthog of a word, if the warthog truly IS the ugliest example of the animal kingdom. I think it sounds like something you would extract from the inner portions of a whale to make STAYS for women's girdles. Or something that you would have removed by some sort of overpriced medical specialist.

Just saying. Crappy sounding word.

Anyway, in publishing, where I've been comfortably nesting for the past ten years, everybody talks about the necessity to BLOG BLOG BLOG. As if everyone has a WHOLE BUNCH OF INTERESTING AND/OR USEFUL THINGS TO SAY.

I'm not sure that I will always have a lot of interesting things to say. But I do have quite a lot of nice pictures. And I thought maybe people would be interested in seeing them.

At least it's a start.

Now I just have to figure out how to upload the pictures!
