Drumroll Please, It Is My Very First Post!

It rained today. The uninterrupted stretch of pavement is now brown and not gray, cleaner. I can hear the wetness as the cars zoom off on the highway––about a minute from my window. So why this blog? Well it is mostly because I am too lazy to keep a diary, and partly because I miss writing for the sake of writing. I need a new challenge. Something that can help me pay more attention when I read the NY Times or Thomas Hardy. I need a place where after sharing my craziness, I can calmly reach the realization that there was nothing really crazy in the first place. I want to interact with you. Hopefully teach you something, but mostly learn something. And so I am here, and very glad that it has been raining like the sea replaced the skies. You know, it got rid of a good percentage of pollen which has helped put a stop to the allergy-like symptoms that had been threatening me in the beginning of this spring. --- J. A. Odartey
