Year One

I started this incarnation of Making Owls Cool (since 1986) one year ago today. We found this cool picture at a store in Tucson and I thought to myself, "We should share this stuff." Next thing you know I've posted over 200 times on all manner of interesting things. At first I struggled to come up with a "theme" or a central concept that bound the blog together, but I finally surrendered to the hope that other folks would find the sames thing interesting that I do. I hope people have.

I sit in front of a computer a lot. I read a lot of books. It's work, work, work most of the time. The blog has given me a lot. Some days writing a brief post is the only time during the day I get to sit and think about stuff I really like. It helps me revisit good times, imagine others, and have a good time writing it.

As of tomorrow I will have blogged for over a year, so I'm setting a goal for myself and the blog. My blog resolution: I hereby commit myself to doing anything in my power to interview Farley Mowat about his owls. I don't know how and I don't know when, but I'm sure going to try.

Thanks for reading.
