Sorry for another meme. It’s the “vacation” thing. I thought I would write two posts a day for a while, but life happened, and I did not have time. So this is what you are getting. (And again, the picture above has nothing to do with text of the post. It is a self-portrait I took on a beautiful beach in Bermuda in April of this year.)

Before I started blogging (and before I really knew much about it), I thought it was a lot bit narcissistic; that was one of the thousands of reasons I hesitated. Now I am not convinced that blogging itself is narcissistic, but I think I must be or why else would I think anyone else would want to read this stuff?

And Ducky, that is no slam against you, which is where I got this meme.
