A trip through the cloud…

No, I don’t mean a legit cloud.  We are not talking cumulus, cirrus, nimbus, or stratus.  I am talking about the cloud of tags on the side there.  You see it, right?  The one on the right side of this page?  Yep, that one.

I just did something I haven’t done in a while.  I randomly clicked somewhere in the cloud and read what came up.  It was an interesting experience.  I found the first time I met Katherine (my Facebook daughter now) and said that she seemed like a rather nice sort.  I found funerals.  I found Ren Faire.  I found the cutest foreign exchange student ever.  Reflections on writing both mine and writing as a group.  And a speech by Temple Grandin.  Oh, and I even found my first entry from before I got the whole idea of tags, which I must’ve gone back and tagged at some point. November 2007 me is very direct and to the point.  October 2010 me is much more rambling in general.  I think, even though I’d had websites before, it took me a bloody long time to get comfortable with putting something I write out there for people.  Maybe that’s why I’m cool with being in 2 in-person writing groups now.  I’m finally comfortable saying: yep, those are my thoughts and that’s what I wrote.  You like it: cool.  You don’t: also cool.  At least you read it and thought about what I wrote.

I don’t know if I’m the only one who would think this, but I think it was rather fun.  It’s like reading a diary that you forgot about.
