Lurking Out Loud

Well, I’m back after almost a month spent in Portland with my family.  It was an amazing experience I hope to write about later, but I want to thank everyone who posted and emailed their thoughts and prayers.  Knowing you were thinking about this and took time to say so meant a huge amount to me and my family.  I miss her and, as some of you expressed, am sure that I will forever.

I just posted this on the PB — it’s an invitation to lurkers on that blog to come out and post a comment.  As much as it’s completely true that all of us who write for the PB want to hear from our readers, I’m even more interested in those of you who read here.  This is a strangely personal blog for me — sometimes academic, often times kinky, sometimes political.  That it goes quiet here too often is partly a reflection of good intentions gone awry, but also a concern about shocking or boring those of you who come here for one thing with having you find something quite different than you expect.  Except that I can’t imagine keeping up with posting on 4 or 5 blogs, there’s certainly something to be said for the more single focused blog approach!

Anyway, this is to say that I love all of you who read here.  Whether you’ve found me via the Daily Kos or one of my too kind blogging friends, are an old friend from ASS/SSS, googled hand strapping or tawsing, chicana feminism or however else you may have landed here, thank you.

And feel free to leave a comment.  On PB I left my favorite book (Pride and Prejudice) which has been a life-long pleasure but here I’m going to leave my favorite song, something which changes often.  This week it’s  "Bad Day" by Daniel Powter. 

Many thanks to the amazing Bonnie at My Bottom Smarts for organizing Love Our Lurkers day!
