One From Column A

Well, I've done it. My first column for Vermont Views magazine just left my screen and went to my new editor, Phil Innes. Yes, he's some relation but we haven't figured that out yet. It's not close enough to be nepotism anyway. He knows the nastier stories about the family that I heard when I was a kid, so we're related somehow. And he's from the auld sod, too. As for the column, I'm not sure but I think it will appear tomorrow (meaning Friday on the US east coast) at

http://www.vermontviews.org/vermontviews.org/Stones_of_Years.html

(and yeah, "Stones of Years" is an ELP reference- from "Tarkus"). This first column is about why I joined Fecebook and why I'm going away now, a  rewrite from this here blog. In 2 weeks I'll have a fresh column done. No idea what that'll be about, though I'm thinking towards GMO Frankenfoods and Obama giving Monsanto a free pass just yesterday... we'll see.

So. I'm excited and scared and happy. Who knows how or where this will go. It's a ride. :)

Nice start. I'm so happy for you.

Excellent article at Vermont Views - congrats (and I couldn't agree more about FB - a happy hurrah to know I'm not alone in that opinion, lol)

Now I'm off to have a stroll thru your pages here!

Thanks, Issy. FB is really not humankind at their best, is it? ;)

Love your blog, btw.

Such a polished article - I am really looking forward to your next one as well (you will publish the link won't you? Please). And your article re-inforced my reluctance to join FarceBook. I am quite connected enough.
I hope your improved sleep, absence from chest pain and creativity continue.

Just tried the link and your article is up. Enjoyed reading it very much!

Austan said...

EC- I'll put up the links as the new articles appear. Thank you! Fb isn't the be-all some would have it be. It's better to let it go than it ever was to be in it.

Geo.- Thanks, maestro! Glad you like it. You just heal up and take care of yourself, ya hear??!!!
