London

I figured that I’d celebrate St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow by going to London, so I’ll be taking a short break from my blog.  But when I get back, it’s on!

From a medical student in Evansville, Indiana, who voted early:

“For me the most moving moment came when the family in front of me, comprising probably 4 generations of voters (including an 18 year old girl voting for her first time and a 90-something hunched-over grandmother), got their turn to vote. When the old woman left the voting booth she made it about halfway to the door before collapsing in a nearby chair, where she began weeping uncontrollably. When we rushed over to help we realized that she wasn’t in trouble at all but she had not truly believed, until she left the booth, that she would ever live long enough to cast a vote for an African-American for president.

My first post!

I have read blogs for a long time.  I read them for fun, and use them in my research.  But I feel that for the first time, I have taken a big boy pill and traded in my myspace blog for a real blog.  I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoy writing it.  I have been blogging on myspace for a while; in fact, that is really the only thing I have used it for, but one day I had a moment of clarity, as I was wrestling with the controls to my blog.  (They weren’t responding to my pleas and were being downright belligerent, refusing to post the body of my post, which really was rather counterproductive, since that was exactly what the blog function was supposed to be doing–allow me to post my blog)  Whew!  

Anyway, I’ve taken a huge step forward when it comes to blogging, and I’m excited to have this space represent my ideas–good, bad, or ugly.  I’ll be writing about travel, media, spirituality, philosophy, and anything else that I think of.  So sit back with your laptop and enjoy.  I know I will.
