yesterday was a pretty big day, huh?
do you feel it?
i feel change. i feel hope. i feel the new day.
i watched bits and pieces of the inauguration--the tv was on as i did some cleaning and straightening around the house--and i was moved several times throughout just by the feeling of change enveloping the whole pageant. after the past (oppressive) eight years, and with the state our economy is in, i feel that the shackles have been lifted from us all.
though i really didn't feel that this was about race, one woman told a reporter that, back on election day, when her kids woke up the next morning, she told them that in the night dr. king's dream came true. so did mine. we are all brothers. finally.
now we can change the world.
mike had a counter.
on his blog, mike had a counter.
something built into the blogger format that he was using that would indicate how many hits he had on each post he'd put up. we talked about that a couple times when i had that occasional feeling that i was just barking in the night, unsure if there was actually anyone out there listening.
well, y'know, reading.
anyway, i still don't have a counter and though i am always warmed by the company of our regulars--our family. and i also know that there are many of you out there that either read the blog religiously, or maybe just check in from time to time, but don't comment or write in at all. s'okay. whichever category you might fall into, i want to thank you for doing so, for keeping up with the perhapanauts, keeping up with the weird and scary things in this world, and especially for putting up with me.
i've tried to make sure that i've had something new posted here on the perhapa-blog every monday, wednesday, and friday for, wow, awhile now, despite busy--sometimes frantically so--schedules and deadlines and such, but for the next month or so, i'm going to be shifting the blog to tuesdays and thursdays and only posting (duh.) twice a week.
the cutback is 'cause i'll be directing a play over the course of the next month and a half called "couples". well, actually, it's a series of nine short plays written by rich orloff. short two person vignettes dealing with relationships, some funny, some poignant, all very well written. i'm looking forward to this again. it'll be a great challenge and, i'm sure, very inspiring.
we'll shift back to our usual three a week on the other side of this and i apologize if this throws off anyone's schedule.
(and if any of you would like to send in a guest post or two to give me even a little more time, i'd eat that up like a big bowl of frankenberry!)
as always, i welcome your comments and for those of you who'd rather not log in and register with blogger just to post a comment, feel free to 'e' me at email@example.com
see ya friday!
smell ya later!
