"The reverse side also has a reverse side." -Japanese proverb quoted in a poem by Stephen Dunn
I started blogging seven years ago and I've been blogging just about every day since then. What I love most about this medium, I think, is how immediate it is. I can write about what happened today, and if you were around today, you can read, today, what I thought about what happened. And that immediacy somehow cultivates a sense of togetherness, of community. And even if you weren't physically around today, even if you were in Angola or Laos at the time, somehow being able to look into my life in something approximating more immediate spacetime than a letter...well, it can be lovely.
