July 8: Tynan talking to me  


Reading the Tynan diaries has been a big influence on me wanting to share my own thoughts through this blog. Somehow this format compels me to join the blog craze, which evaded me (at least my understanding of it) though the diary form and its privacy and extra-personal element is so useful, that is, getting the angst out and down on paper, where no one will see it unless, like Tynan, you tell your daughter on your death-bed, or thereabouts, that you're leaving it to her, and twenty years later it's published.

I expect that I'm going to be talking a great deal about what I've learned, and enjoyed, from this book in this blog.

Virgin blogger's thought: that it might be a little like jogging, or practicing an instrument: once you get started . . .
