Before availing of Blogspot's free service, I was using myspace's blog feature. I started February 2004. The entries were sporadic there; 2-3 updates a month. Or sometimes none at all.
I still remember the day I created this realm: It was more or less 3pm. I was multi-tasking: packing for a 2-day Galera beach trip with pep friends and chatting with a stateside friend. She said she has a blogspot home. Visited it. I was impressed. I immediately registered and proceeded to post a 2-liner entry.
And the rest is history.
Yes, my blog is now a year old.
How time flies.
"I did not know what to say, my mouth had no way with names,
my eyes were blind, and something started in my soul,
fever or forgotten wings, and I made my own way,
deciphering that fire, and I wrote the first faint line, faint
without substance, pure nonsense, pure wisdom of someone who knows nothing,
and suddenly I saw the heavens unfastened and open, planet, palpitating planations,
shadow perforated, riddled with arrows, fire and flowers, the winding night, the universe."
Pablo Neruda certainly knows his shit.
