The Most Important Things...

The most important things are the hardest things to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them--words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they’re brought out. But it’s more than that, isn’t it? The most important things lie too close to where your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you’ve said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That’s the worst, I think. When the secret stays locked within not for want of a teller, but for want of an understanding ear.

OK already.

Against my better judgement, I am taking the path of least resistance and giving into increasing pressure to set up a "Facebook" account. I am making this announcement in this manner for several reasons.

1. I know how I am with new things. I remember a short year ago when I started this blog. I wrote almost every day and was consumed with it. I have enough on my plate already without adding another black hole for my time to disappear into.

2. There are already a few "musts" in my life... my work being the biggie, "24" being one, but I have to DVR it and watch it the next weekend because I'm still staying in Halltown during the week. There are others, of course, Sheri, church, my own health (or lack thereof according to Sheri), you know... stuff like that. I'm afraid of what might happen if I really get into this facebook thing and it becomes another "must" that starts eating into my time because of my own lack of self discipline. How's that for a little self-evaluation?

However... that being said, I do recognize the benefits of such a tool to keep in contact with my ever growing circle of friends. I'm not one that has so many friends that I can afford squander this opportunity to "reach out and touch someone."

So the facebook is set up.

Until next time...
