i don't know why i feel so tongue tied

so this is my first post as a blogger. i finally decided that i could no longer live vicariously through my friends blogs by simply leaving comments. i have been putting this off, however, because if feel like i haven't written anything in a long time worth anything. i lost my inspiration i guess and just couldn't find my voice, if i ever had one, to say anything. So here we go, with everything around us changing i am sure i will as well, but i hope that this will be an open forum to stay together and keep in touch as we embrace, struggle against, fight for, and are destroyed by the changes we experience. Truth is everything is always changing, we can either do it together and recognize each other at the end, or do it on our own and never recognize one another again.

in remembrance of things to come? does this mean that I have to comments metaphysically? sheesh, this will be tricky.

welcome, at last! a rather elocuent beginning, my friend.

the way i see it, everyone has a voice; it just takes a bit of courage, or faith, or craziness (whatever that means), or a little of all three, to let it speak.

words cannot express how happy i am that you are writing! i, for one, hope that this change is a lasting one.

I feel tongue-tied all the time, as if there were something built up inside that wanted to escape but I didn't have the language to let it out. If you can't name it, it doesn't exist, right?

or does naming it destroy it...

I'm already remembering that I saw you when I went back to Utah next month to defend my thesis that I haven't finished yet (now those are some apples!).

Naming destroys it definitely. Case in point...Cargo Pants, need i say more?
