They call it social media, but I rather think of blogging as a conversation, an exchange of ideas that draws on the varied experiences and talents of a wider, global community.  A few weeks ago, Letizia from Reading Interrupted invited me to write a guest blog on George Washington which was in response to Letizia’s excellent post on Revisiting the Jefferson Bible. I encourage you to visit Letizia’s blog and enjoy reading (and participating in)  the animated discussion.

Thank you, Letizia, for introducing me to your dynamic and vibrant community. I look forward to every one of your posts. With a book in our hands, we are always on an adventure.

      Thank you, Cindy! The dialogue allows us to live many adventures beyond our capabilities. We may live in a finite existence, yet when we participate within a community, the possibilities are infinite.

      Oh!! How well said, Bill! We owe a great deal of gratitude to those who have chosen writing as their lifelong journey.

        “To be asleep is to be dead. It is like death. So we dance, we dance so as not to be dead. We do not want that.” Ray Bradbury, The Illustrated Man

        A great way to describe Ray Bradbury – amazement. I have added this link that I watch every now and again just to feel Ray Bradbury’s joy over books and libraries!

    I loved having you on my blog and listening in on the conversations too! You’re so right, blogging is really like having a great conversation.

    p.s. I enjoyed reading Ruth Reichl’s memoirs. Have you read them? Your quotation reminded me of them as I read them a few years ago now.

      Thank you again, Letizia! I’m looking forward to our long and rewarding conversation. I have just ordered Garlic and Sapphires – the Secret Life of A Critic in Disguise by Ruth Reichl, through the Vancouver Public Library. I’m second in line! 🙂

    It is a wonderful conversation we have. I thoroughly enjoy Letizia’s blog. As for the adventure in a book; when I was much much younger, I used to race through books. Now that I can no longer do that, I am enjoying my books so much more. They are becoming companions, friendly faces, fellow travellers.
