I have decided to start blogging again. A new year's resolution of sorts. Too much of my creative energy has gone into small posts at Facebook and elsewhere. Those posts seem meaningful at the time, but fall into meaninglessness and are forgotten. Too much of my creative energy has gone into online courses working towards my Associate School Library Media Specialist certification. One can spend more time on discussion boards for online classes than it takes to attend physical classes. All the reading response and writing for those classes, and all the things learned that need to be applied, are easily lost. I am hoping that organizing, aggregating, and curating my many areas of thinking and living can be centralized on this old blog. I suppose some of it will be copied and pasted from other virtual places I put down text and pictures in the Internets. I suppose some of my writing here will remain original. I suppose some of it (or most of it?) will be this stream-of-consciousness sort of stuff that I was taught and practiced in high school.
