Greetings. Angst. Back to Business As Usual.

Hello all, I'm back from a wonderful summer and am excited/fearful to be here once again in the electronic village of blogging ("Electronic Village." Hmm. Sounds like a good blog title, or maybe a band name?).

Anyway I'm excited, because now the ideas and fancies that have been bubbling on the back burner of my mind can be brought out and developed more fully. Fearful, because stuff like that almost never happens; I find that all that I want to do most (like conveying the kinds of ideas that keep me up at night in excitement) I am powerless to do. More than once I've set out to change the world with a post of stunning brilliance but end up just placing one more well intentioned brick on the wall separating myself from the practical world.

I know that this minor fit of angst is by no means limited to my realm of personal experience (cf. Romans 7), but I just happen to be feeling it closely, now that I'm setting finger to keyboard once again in an effort to relate the details of the backyard odyssey mentioned in this blog's tagline.

However that wall (the one separating me from the practical world) is no longer here and I am, so we'll see what comes of this rebirth. And don't worry if it sounds like I'm forgoing all fun and frivolity in favor of furrowed brow and set jaw. That's not the case at all, I'm simply asking for your help (understanding?) as I take baby steps to become a better blogger.

Ello, good to have you back! Of course you couldn't ask for more understanding companions, be encouraged! Can't wait to hear(read) these new good ideas.

Thank you Queen, but the updates, world changing ideas etc. will have to wait untill I clean my room!

Well, your post certainly isn't lacking for alliteration! :)

Yes indeedy, as I always say; "If you can't write than just alliterationize - a lot."

OK so I don't always say that, but I might say it more from now on.

Welcome home! Let's see...ideas that keep you up at night? Yes, you are young and while the Lord is stirring your mind, don't forget to jot down the things you think you'll never forget. The memory will wax and wane, but the written word will remain.

Your return has been much awaited. I believe your readers and friends will be more than happy just to hear from you. However, I find it just absolutely wonderful that you set high standards for yourself as a writter.

Oh, we are nearing the 4 month visit again..this time it's your turn. We will see you in September. Oh, or we could just wait till Christmas break for sledding...

Thanks for the warm welcome Queen Mum, and please know that nothing would make me happier than a trip to your house for some Mum's Jeep style sledding. Yee HAW!
