The wriggling reliquary of Waking Ambrose.
Jeremiah just wanted to be on the road again, no matter what, eh? Lately the only thread still attaches him to rooms with beds is his remembering his mother (who is silent among other adults but not when they are two at home), but for how long? I mean, I don't think he will stop remembering but wonder if it will keep him back for long.
Ariel the Thief drones on on the blog Doug Drone On. Meanwhile, her icegrapefruit blog has not been updated in four months.
Ariel, that's a good observation, I don't expect him to be held back.Karen, is your point that a person ought to earn the right to comment on someone else's blog with their own site?
Hello Doug ~ Not really. Earning the right to comment is prohibited by the First Amendment.But I think my point is that the blogosphere is, and should be, an exchange of ideas -- sort of like a "marketplace of ideas". I know I'm always interested to explore different worlds through other people's eyes. Like, I never would have found Nicole B's website if it hadn't been for her comments on your's and Quilly's blogs. Anyway, we're going to have to continue this discussion tomorrow. It's almost 2:30 in morning here!Karen
Karen, I agree with you about the internet being a marketplace of ideas, but if it is to be that, it needs a place for people who think the internet is not a marketplace of ideas and, besides, as they do on DiA, the exchange can happen all on one site. Everybody doesn't need their own.
It's nice to see the quality of commentary on W.A. has improved. Perhaps the marketplace of ideas is growing.
This will or might seem a daft thing to say but hey, I'm British and it goes with the turf BUT...this all reminds me of Dave Sims excellent Cerebus. I mean, it is nothing like it (this is the daft bit) but it has that oddball feel to it. Please do not shoot me for sacrilege.. I have just printed the whole nine yards out onto the works printer. I may be able to leave before midnight judging by how many pages there are.
Karen, you never know.C.J., I'm flattered but haven't read Cerberus. I'm American, we don't shoot for sacrilege, but for shoes.
One last parting shot, C.J. Duffy:Karen,Thanks you for the compliment regarding my blog left on Hobbes site.As for pirates, well, swash my buckles and brace the spanker, the top gallant needs reefing. (No, I have no idea what I am saying simply using a lot of Patrick O’Brian stuff!)CJ
