Hi, and welcome to my God(dess) only knows what number first blog post in the last 20+ years.
Posterous was one of my favorite blogging platforms ever. And I've used a lot of 'em; Xanga, Angelfire, Blogger, Squarespace, Typepad, Wordpress.com, Live & Dead Journal, and several that don't exist anymore. When I found out that Posterous co-founder Garry Tan launched Posthaven I got out my card and signed right up.
I've been laying kinda low since moving to Idaho Falls November 15th 2019. Technically I'm half a block away in Ammon, right across the street from the Grand Teton Mall. There was a lot of ice on the ground this winter, so the kids insisted on driving me everywhere because of my wonky left knee. I was dreaming of the day I could walk to the Barnes & Noble cafe for a venti something or another and long writing sessions. There's a ginormous Regal theater, a college that allows me to use their library, and lots of stores & restaurants - all within walking distance. But then something I never imagined happening - did - and we all need to social distance/lock down for what might be a long while.
An old friend brought Sir Isaac Newton's Years of Wonders to my attention, and I decided to make this My Own Time of Wonders. Will I be changing history? Probably not. But I'll be writing, taking photos, walking our 11 year old Pom Shadow, reading and reviewing books and movies, and posting all about it here.
I'll be back!
Wishing you all a Time of Wonders
