The Handwriting on the Wall

A blog is today’s version of a diary.  It includes the writer’s personal take on the things that happen to them and around them.  When I was young, I had a diary.  It wasn’t a diary per se, as I didn’t use it to reflect on my day or current situation but rather to write down some of the poetry and prose I didn’t want anyone to see.  No, the work wasn’t risqué or otherwise inappropriate, but it was a time in my life when I “wrote for...
