This morning I have a little gem of time, as I listen to the thunder roll over the mountain and wait for rain and my mother to waken. The last two days have been a grueling example of how no good deed goes unpunished, as my mother recuperates from the family picinic with bi-polar bouts of crying and fits of terrifying anger.
So, while I have a few minutes, I sit here at my computer and take the time to actually read through a document to which I linked in my previous post, finding it full of gems of information I didn’t know,.
And among those gems is a rare one, indeed — reference to Marietta Holley, a little-known 19th century writer from Ellisburgh, New York:
What a blogger Marietta Holley woul have made in today’s culture! No doubt she would be a part of the BlogHer conference, to which Jeneane Sessum of Allied should be going this year, but — as life sometimes goes — can’t.
Wait until next year Jeneane. Maybe we can both make it.
