Such an interesting beast the blog is. I’ve been hard at work in my fiction class writing and reviewing, reading and critiquing and so have missed a few days here.
As I read some of the fiction in my on-line class and watch tv, and read blogs, I am struck by the prevalence of the irrelevant and the banal. There is a great deal of dreck in our world isn’t there?
Where to find relevance? How to be inspired? Certainly the little boy in The Carrot Seed is an inspiration for me. He gave something a try that wasn’t so popular, or didn’t seem worthwhile. He stuck to it, he nurtured it, he believed in it when others didn’t. And after awhile – Bam! A carrot came up!
And so, I’m going to keep on blogging. It’s like a seed. Although I’m not sure what will come up? That’s ok. We’ll see. Hopefully it won’t be dreck.
