Celebrating 10 Blogging Years!

Happy Anniversary Blog O'Mine. To honor this occasion  I am posting the first post from May 16, 2003.

Joy Blogging
How can sitting all day with your eyes on the screen
make you think of new things and say what you mean?
The keys are alive with the power of words
though the thought of it all is something absurd.
In Bloggsville they type and they type and they scroll.
They read and they search trying to make themselves whole.
But all that arrives on the screen are the bits,
the tids and the flotsom and whatever fits.
The blogging goes on, day in, and day out,
as they wonder out loud and shift with each doubt.
It's a Zeuslike land all the words that they blog.
Yet, the bloggers blog on, blog, blog, blog-blog, blog.

The tenth years begins with postings from Eastern Europe. I stowed away on one of my husband's business trips, discovered Moscow's treasures, archeological wonders of Ostrava (Czech Republic), and perfect parks in Pszczyna (Poland; pronounced CHINya). Here's a photo preview.
